What is Bowen Therapy? And How Can Bowen Therapy Help ME?

This question is the most asked question of my professional life. So let us start with the basic’s of this remarkable therapy.

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.


How Can Bowen Therapy Help ME?

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. A Bowen Therapy treatment takes approximately 1 hour of time. Unlike other modalities a Bowen Practitioner does a set amount of moves and then leaves the client for a minimum of 2 minutes. The practitioner then return’s to continue the treatment. This ‘leaving’ the client between moves has the benefit of allowing the body time to respond to the moves performed. It is what makes Bowen Therapy unique in this world.
