Bowtech, the original Bowen Technique is a gentle form of body work in which
very subtle moves performed over the muscles and connective tissue
send messages deep into the body, retrieving cellular memory of
a preferred, relaxed and balanced way of wellbeing. Results can
be remarkable, even from the first session; often only a few sessions
are needed to correct the presenting problem.
There are frequent but very essential pauses throughout the session
that allow the body time to respond and begin the healing process.
The practitioner can target a specific problem or address the body
as a whole.
Unlike many other hands-on therapies, the Bowen Technique does
not use forceful manipulation. A unique skill of the Bowen practitioner
is "tissue tension sense", meaning that the practitioners
are able to discern stress build-up in muscles and other soft tissue,
enabling them to perform specific Bowen moves to assist recovery.
The technique addresses not only the musculoskeletal framework,
but also the fascia, nerves and internal organs. The body's integrated
response improves circulation and lymphatic drainage and aids in
the assimilation of nutrients and elimination of toxins.
The Bowen Technique can help clients on all levels. Mr Tom Bowen
said that any or every condition could be addressed by this technique.
