How does it work?
Bowtech™, the original Bowen Technique, is a gentle form of body work in which very subtle moves are performed over muscles and connective tissue. The stimulation of the fascia and muscle tissue sends messages via the nervous system deep into the body. This helps retrieve cellular memory of a preferred, relaxed, more balanced state of wellbeing. Results can be remarkable, even from the first session. Often only a few sessions are needed to correct the presenting problem.

Bowen Therapy does not use forceful manipulation. The technique addresses not only the musculo-skeletal framework, but also the fascia, nerves and internal organs. The body response improves circulation and lymphatic drainage and aids in the assimilation of nutrients and elimination of toxins.

Can I use other therapies?
A Bowen session initiates a cascade of beneficial changes that continue for several days. Applying other manipulative therapies during this time can interrupt this process and undermine the overall effectiveness of the Bowen work. It is therefore recommended that the client wait a week before commencing any other manual therapy, or better, avoid until the treatment protocol has been completed.
