What is Bowen Technique (Bowtech)? (definition taken from the Bowtech website)

Bowen TechniqueThe original Bowen technique, as taught by the Bowen Therapy Academy of Australia, is unique in the field of body work. Bowtech’s relatively few gentle “moves” over muscle and other soft tissue, stimulate the body and cause it to reset and heal itself. The healing may occur at all levels as needed: physical, chemical, emotional, mental, energetic, etc.

A Bowtech session consists of several series of gentle moves through light-weight clothing (or on skin). In a Bowtech office or clinic, the client usually lies on a bed or bodywork table or, for comfort, sits in a chair; however, Bowtech can be done anywhere... on a sports field, in a hospital room, at the site of an accident, on an airplane or a train.

A session may last from fifteen minutes to an hour. Most often, a surprisingly few number of sessions are required to alleviate complaints, whether structural or functional, even if the injury is long-standing. Generally, results last for a considerable amount of time, until there is re-injury.

Bowtech is completely safe and appropriate for everyone, from newborns to the elderly. Highly trained athletes and pregnant women benefit greatly, each according to need. Although there are three circumstances in which a specific series of moves is contraindicated, there are no contraindications for a Bowen session, as other parts of the body as a whole will still benefit.

What kind of health complaints can be addressed with the Bowen Technique (Bowtech)?

Bowen TechniqueBowtech has been called “the homeopathy of body work” because it stimulates the body’s own healing capabilities to begin the healing process. It has also been called “the second chance remedy” because even when other therapies have failed, Bowtech can provide relief.. Gentle moves on muscles, tendons, ligaments or nerves, deliver signals to the nervous system, resulting in responses of the vital capacity of the individual that promote healing and general well-being.  Bowtech is a holistic therapy that can be used to tune up your system; to provide relief from daily stress; to relieve you from pain; to treat and cure a wide variety of acute complaints such as injuries, headaches, migraines, colds and flues, etc; and to treat and cure a wide variety of chronic conditions such as IBS, fibromyalgia, rheumatoid arthritis, depression, infertility problems, asthma, etc.
