What Are The Origins Of Bowen Therapy?



The Bowen Therapy or the full name Bowen Therapeutic Technique was developed in the 1950’s by Tom Bowen. Tom Bowen was a remarkable man with an innate sense of the human body. He lived in Victoria and through his bodywork clinics in Geelong used his hands to activate each patients body to stimulate their own self-healing ability.

Over the years Tom Bowen shared his work and understanding with six people known as ‘Tom’s Boys”. One of these was Oswald Rentsch, who founded The Bowen Therapy Academy of Australia in 1986 (later known as BOWTECH). He the trained Benjamin Setter in 1991 who is now the Senior Bowen Therapist of Australia.
