Can Bowen Therapy be combined?
Tom Bowen demonstrated that Bowen Therapy is a stand alone therapy! When I was first starting out in Practice, I was told by many other Alternative Medicine Practitioners around me that you need to learn to do a number of different treatments. And if necessary to learn to use them successfully in combination!
Tom Bowen was insistent that clients didn’t use other therapies while being treated by him. He knew that the results were better and more consistent if they allowed the Bowen Therapy to work unspoiled by other treatments. This has been repeatedly proven not just in my own practice for the last 28 years. but by many other authentic Bowen Therapist around the world.

A. If you’ve woken up in the morning with a stiff or painful neck, and with your head often stuck on a lean…then that’s wry neck. Left unattended this painful locking of the vertebrae caused by poor pillow posture and muscle tension can take several days to undo itself, but with Bowen Therapy a wry neck is very swiftly resolved. With the gentlest of Bowen work the neck very quickly relaxes, stopping the pain and returning a full range of neck movement.
Osgood-Schlatter disease is an overuse injury that occurs in the knee of adolescents. It is caused by inflammation of the patellar tendon below the kneecap – where the tendon attaches to the shinbone. Those most at risk of this disease are teenagers who participate physical sports such as rugby league, soccer, gymnastics, basketball and distance running on bitumen or concrete paths.
Once a diagnosis has been made the standard treatment aims at reducing the pain and swelling. This may include the use of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs and wrapping the knee until the child can enjoy activity without discomfort or significant pain afterwards.
It’s a biggie – where do you stop? Should we be treating clients with terminal cancer? What about M.S. or Parkinson’s disease? A brain tumour? HIV – now that hasn’t gone away. Alcoholism hasn’t either. What about mental illness? What’s the mind got to do with Bowen Therapy?
The truth is, Bowen Therapy is about the body – which the brain is a part of – so if there’s a problem with the body, Bowen Therapy can help, even if it is just to relax the muscles from the anxiety of a serious illness. A Bowen Therapist should not be discouraged by viruses and cancer. Instead, they really should boldly go where no Bowen Therapist has gone before. They must find the fortitude to work with the gravely ill. Yes, some patients will die…but if a Bowen Therapist can take away a little bit of pain, offer a little comfort, then why should they not offer help?
So for all Bowen Therapists out there…find your courage!
Find the courage to look other medical professionals in the eye and tell them a Bowen Therapist’s touch is not limited to muscular and skeletal injuries. And find the courage you will need to repeat every move with disciplined perfection. Day in day out, don’t let the repetition break you…get every Bowen move right and repeat it a thousand times.
Make that discipline teach your hands and mind to be absolutely proficient in Tom Bowen’s Technique. Bowen Therapy is for the long term! The moves you make today can shape a client’s life for years.
And above all, know your own limits. We all have them, even Bowen Therapists. You may not be comfortable working with the terminally ill as they draw their last breath – I wasn’t at first, and it took me ten years to know when I was ready to.
So, fellow Bowen Therapists, having read all of this, perhaps it’s time for some personal discovery. What will you say when someone asks, “What is untreatable for a Bowen Therapist?”
