The Bowen Technique embodies a truly holistic approach to healthcare. It is concerned not just with treating specific conditions and symptoms, but also with encouraging a natural potential for health to express itself in every aspect of the patient’s life. It is based on the principle that the origin of many of problems in the body can be found in the fascia, the soft connective tissue that protects every tissue in the body like a vast matrix or web. The fascia envelops muscles, bones and nerves, and if it is damaged or compromised, it can affect all the structures in the body. By applying the Bowen Therapeutic Technique, receptors in the fascia are stimulated and released, which enables the body to revitalize and heal itself. A unique feature of the Bowen Therapeutic Technique is the frequent pauses between each series of moves. These are given to allow the body to respond and integrate what has been done.
The Bowen Technique empowers the body to heal itself. The therapy consists of very precise, gentle noninvasive rolling moves on muscle and connective tissue using thumbs and fingers, which balance the body and stimulate the energy flow within it.
