About Bowen Therapy
The Bowen Technique is a remedial, hands-on therapy that is applied using very gentle pressure. The practitioner uses thumbs and fingers on precise acupressure points of the body to perform Bowen’s unique sets of rolling-type moves which stimulate the muscles and soft tissue of the body. There is no manipulation or adjustment of hard tissue and no force is used. The experience of a treatment is gentle, subtle and relaxing. The Bowen Technique prompts the body to reset, repair and balance itself and clients report the experience of pain relief, improvement of function and recovery of energy.
A key element of the principle guiding Bowen is that we work holistically, according to the well-established principle of naturopathic medicine: ‘That the body be treated as a whole, without referral to named disease’. With Bowen we don’t diagnose and we are not treating just the named disease or condition, but we are treating the whole person.
Chris Reed, President of the Bowen Association of Australia and instructor from the Geelong Bowen & Remedial Therapies, explains some of the ways in which Bowen Therapy affects the body during treatment.
