Bowen therapy

Bowen therapy, or the Bowen technique, is a non-invasive, complementary holistic therapy. It targets certain points on the body with gentle rolling movements to help it balance, repair and reset itself. Clients are believed to experience energy recovery, a reduction in pain and an improvement of function.

Developed in the 1950s by Tom Bowen, this therapy is reported to help with a number of conditions and can address the symptoms of stress and anxiety. It is important to note that Bowen therapy focuses on the whole person, not just the condition. Yet the Bowen therapist will know a number of movements that affect certain areas of the body.
