What is Bowen Therapy?

 

What is Bowen Therapy?

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, with small waits of 2 minutes or more between sets of moves, the Bowen Therapist stimulates the body’s innate healing system to realign and re-balance.

 

What to expect when having a Bowen Therapy Treatment?

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.

 

What can Bowen Therapy do for me?

Why does Bowen Therapy not combine or integrate with any other modality?

One of the most frequently asked questions by both Clients and Professionals in Townsville alike is:

Why does Bowen therapy not combine or integrate with any other modality?

Tom Bowen demonstrated that Bowen Therapy is less effective, or will cease to function at all, if any other modality was combined with his technique. This has been shown to be true when my own clients have chosen to ignore this and have, for example, had a massage after having received a Bowen Therapy Treatment. The results of that massage has stopped the Bowen Therapy. This though has sadly not stopped others from attempting to combine Bowen Therapy with other modalities, leading to a lot of misinformation about Bowen Therapy and it’s effectiveness as a treatment. When searching for Bowen Therapy not just here in Townsville Queensland Australia be sure that you are receiving Bowen Technique and not a combination Technique.

An important message to the community from Setter’s Health Centre.

 

What is the History of Bowen Therapy in Townsville, Queensland Australia?

Bowen therapy was first taught in Townsville in July 1991, by Bowtech Founders Ossie and Elaine Rentsch. Benjamin Setter was at that course and opened the first Bowen Therapy Clinic in Townsville, Queensland, Australia in November 1991.

Since then, Benjamin and the dedicated Crew of Bowen Therapy Specialists at Setter’s Health Centre, have travelled around Australia and around the World to train with the best in Bowen Therapy, so that they can continue to offer an outstanding Bowen Therapy service to the community of Townsville, Queensland.
