What is Bowen Therapy?

Bowen therapy (or the Bowen technique) is possibly one of those holistic, remedial treatments you may have heard about as an effective treatment for pain relief and healing but aren’t quite sure what is involved. Bowen is a gentle, relaxing and non-invasive therapy that works on the body’s superficial and deep fascia (the connective tissue that envelops and separates every organ and tissue). Like many natural therapies, it treats the whole person, focussing on the cause of a problem rather than just the symptoms. It addresses imbalances in the body’s energetic and facial systems and is an effective treatment for a wide range of issues. Put simply, Bowen resets the body, allowing it to heal itself.

What Can I Expect During and After My Session?

During a Bowen treatment session, the practitioner will make a sequence of gentle, rolling moves with their thumbs and fingers at varying pressures at specific sites on the body. These cross-fibre manipulations are intended to stimulate the fascia associated with muscles, tendons, ligaments and nerves and do not involve forceful manipulations. Treatment typically lasts between 30 minutes and one hour and can be applied through a layer of light clothing (no oils are used). You do not need to undress. During treatment, the practitioner may pause for short periods to allow your body to respond before commencing the next movement sequence. Increasing your water intake after your session will help support positive treatment outcomes.

Who Can Benefit From Treatment?

Anyone of any age with a musculoskeletal or related neurological conditions can receive Bowen therapy. Conditions commonly seen by a Bowen therapist may include but are not limited to:

  • Pain associated with musculoskeletal or neurological issues (acute or chronic)
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Chronic fatigue syndrome
  • Sports or traumatic injuries
  • General joint pain
  • Back and neck pain
  • Sciatica, leg and foot pain
  • Frozen shoulder, arm pain and carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Jaw pain (temporomandibular joint dysfunction)
  • Stress, anxiety and depression
  • Asthma

If your condition is not chronic, long-standing or a repeat injury, you may experience relief after one treatment and can generally look forward to significant improvement or recovery within three sessions.
