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.

“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 people’ 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/integrated/body preasure therapy.
