Bowen Bits 24: Bowen Therapy Origins

The Bowen Therapeutic Technique (Bowen Therapy) 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 men known as ‘Tom’s Boys”. One of these was Oswald Rentsch, who founded the Bowen Therapy Academy of Australia (BTAA) in 1987.

Did you know?

“Tom Bowen’s Technique Modality was named in his honour ‘Bowen Therapy‘ years after his death in 1982.”

“Tom Bowen never used his Technique in combination with any other modality because it was clear that the work became less effective or ceased to function at all.”

“Tom Bowen trained only ‘six men’ in his modality. Mr Ossie Rentsch the founder of the Bowen Therapy Academy of Australia (Bowtech) is one of these six. Sadly, at this time none of these men reside in Townsville QLD Australia.”

“Everyone is better with Tom Bowen’s Therapy in it’s original form.”
