Bowen Bits: What is Bowen Therapy?

What is Bowen Therapy?

What can Bowen Therapy do for me?

The Gentle Healing Technique

Bowen Therapeutic Technique (Bowen Therapy) is a dynamic system of muscle and connective tissue therapy that encourages the body to right itself. This technique involves a gentle roll over the muscle. By using a set system of these small moves from the base of the neck to the tips of the toes, the therapist stimulates the body’s innate healing system to realign and re-balance.

Bowen Therapeutic Technique (Bowen Therapy) is completely safe for the newborn baby to the frail and elderly. It is gentle, fast and an effective way to treat health concerns from sporting injuries to pain, stress and discomfort. Bowen Therapy stimulates the patient’s musculoskeletal system into realigning itself.

The beauty of Bowen Therapy is that it will not interfere and works well with all medication and/or dietary supplements and is gentle but powerful. A treatment takes about one hour.

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.

Governing Bodies

Bowen Therapy Academy of Australia, the original source of Bowtech, the original Bowen Technique was established by Oswald and Elaine Rentsch in 1987. This technique has been taught in a variety of settings however now is delivered in a Certificate IV and Diploma format, consisting of 11 Modules and 2 Specialised Bowen Procedures courses.

What is Bowen Therapy?

A Bowen Therapist rolls the muscles to stimulate the nerves underneath. In a set system of these moves, we get the body to respond and realign. In essence we are getting the human body to work for itself.

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 Australia.”

Bowen Therapy is a technique unto itself, it requires no oils and has know thrust manipulation.

Bowen Therapy is a set system of moves, that instruct the body to heal for itself.

Bowen Therapy treatments are generally once every five to seven days, depending on the seriousness of the problem.

Bowen Therapy’s full name is Bowen Therapeutic Technique. It is not a combination therapy.

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