Bowen Therapy

According to Bowen practitioners, Bowen Treatment method promotes certain receptors that help the body itself to adjust dysfunctions and regain homeostatic balance on a holistic level. Bowen Treatment treats the entire body, and its holistic effects are experienced by sufferers who discover resolution to issues above and beyond those for which they have sought therapy, for instance not enough energy, stress or psychological concerns. Bowen Therapy constitutes a holistic and multidimensional method of pain alleviation and healing technique. It is according to the realization by Tom Bowen, its founder, who resided and practiced in Geelong, Victoria, that the root cause or origin of numerous musculoskeletal, neurological, neuromuscular along with other health or pain issues might be found in the soft tissue or fascia. Fascia is a particular type of connective tissue that forms a three dimensional web around each and every tissues in the body. Fascia is the body organizer embracing most nerves, bones, blood vessels, and muscle tissues. Therefore fascial dysfunction could affect every structure, muscle, nerve and organ in the body. Fascia has become the topic of increasing research and recent studies have demonstrated it to be the major sensory organ in the body. It is abundant with a variety of receptors that powerfully impact the body’s neuro-muscular physiology in numerous and complicated ways.

The Bowen Technique is a gentle remedial treatment as their therapists try to stimulate the body to rebalance itself and possibly enhance healing, pain relief and recovery of energy. The Bowen method aims to assist and increase the healing abilities of the body. Bowen therapists recognize that the body is able to modify, adjust and recover itself and the therapy aims to support the body using this.
