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.
