As a bridge to better health, Bowen Therapy releases blocked tension, resets the body's equilibrium, and activates its own innate healing mechanism by producing deep relaxation and clearing physical and emotional blockages. This, along with improvement in circulation, accelerates the healing process.
Bowen Therapy technique utilizes a series of simple, specific moves across the muscle and connective tissue (similar to tuning a stringed instrument). These moves send harmonic vibrations that balance the body. It is extaordinarily effective for any muscular skeletal, or nerve imbalances and it has been very successful in treating chronic pain due to injury.
The basic Bowen "move" is precisely applied to specific points on the muscles and tendons. Using the fingers and thumb, the area is slightly manipulated with the muscle being challenged and gently moved in the opposite direction. There are "waiting" intervals between the moves. The client is left to rest for a few minutes to allow time for "processing" before the next set of moves are administered.
These moves send a neurological impulse to the muscles and brain which realign and restore balance to the muscles, joints, and nerves helping reestablish the structural and functional integrity of the human body. These series of moves balance energy and muscle tone; stimulate circulation; enhance lymphatic drainage and reduces edema. The holistic action of Bowen Therapy results in clearing toxins and increasing joint mobility. This technique is effective in balancing the autonomic nervous system and helps to support the immune system.
Bowen Therapy induces the relaxation response, giving the body a sense of being light, free and exceptionally supple. After treatment, some athletes and golfers have been surprised by improved performance in their game --- And everyone enjoys better posture naturally. This unique Australian modality triggers the body's response to renew itself and promotes an overall feeling of well-being.

In the early 1950’s, Tom Bowen developed these remarkably effective manipulations and began to share them with the world. His technique has been practiced with extraordinary results for over half a century in Australian clinics and was brought to the United States in the fall of 1989 by the late Milton Albrecht. Bowen Therapy is becoming a preferred treatment here because its simple, natural application is very relaxing; it balances the body’s equilibrium, produces positive responses quickly and complements other medical treatment a client my be receiving.
