Bowen Bits – Adapting treatments for children

This section is for my fellow Bowen Therapy practitioners – so if your eyes are crossing as you read this, move onto the next section…

One of the first things you’ll notice with children, is that from the moment they walk through your door and go up on the treatment table they don’t want to be there. Too many have had scary visits to the doctors, and at first glance they won’t be able to tell the difference between your treatment room and a doctor’s surgery. So maybe it’s time to get off the table and crouch down to their level. If they’ve found something to play with on the floor, then that’s the best place you can be to treat them. So get off your table and get on those knees. If kids enjoy their Bowens, then treating them is going to be a whole lot easier.

Now for a little aside –

Bowen Therapists can be few and far between, with many of us exisiting only as an email to our fellow practitioners. At Setters we’re all about connecting with our Bowen bretheren, and the emails of goodwill we have received over the last twelve months have encouraged us to continue our broadband briefings. So if there’s any other practitioner out there you feel could benefit from this newsletter, please pass it on to them.


What Is Bowen Therapy? What Can Bowen Therapy Do For Me?

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, 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.

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.
