What is Bowen?
Bowen Fascial Release technique involves light pressure and ‘rolling’ type movements made with the finger and thumbs over, muscles, tendons and soft tissue at precise points on the body, accompanied by repetitive pauses during treatment.
This pattern of movements stimulates the muscles and soft tissue to encourage relaxation, release tension, increase blood and lymphatic circulation and release energy stored in the body. The pauses in the treatment allows the body to initiate realignment and begin self-healing, and restore balance within the body.
Bowen Fascial Release technique is a gentle, deeply relaxing and highly effective soft tissue release therapy that is suitable for all ages from birth to the older adult.
The technique was developed by the late Thomas Bowen in Geelong, Australia in the late 1950's and he devoted his life's work to refining this unique bodywork technique. Since the late 1980's Tom Bowens work is practiced world-wide.
It can be effective for the new born, the older adult, those who are disabled by injury or disease, and whom maybe wheelchair or bed bound. It can support those who are receiving palliative care or intensive treatments and also those who are not injured or in pain, but who just want to boost their well-being by achieving deep relaxation and rebalance their body.
Bowen also can be highly beneficial to sports persons who wish optimise their sports performance and minimise injury or speed up their recovery from injury.
This unique therapy is safe, simple, effective, and non-invasive that has very few contra-indications. As a Bowen Practitioner, I cannot diagnose, and do not advocate that the Bowen Fascial Release technique should be intended as a substitute for medical advice or treatment. If you have any medical concerns the please seek advice from your Doctor.
