Why live with pain?
Tom Bowen 1916-1982 lived in Geelong, Australia. He was a truly gifted man in that he created muscoskeletal treatments that allowed the body to heal in a short space of time.
People today that have experienced the true benefits of the BOWEN state:
“Remarkable I have no pain after all these years”
“I have more energy and feel relaxed about life”
“How does it work? It feels so light when you touch me”
“I forgot to tell you, but, since you’ve been treating me my headaches and constipation have gone”
WHAT IS BOWEN?
Bowen is not massage or manipulation, it is totally unique. It is unlike any other therapy that I have experienced. The Bowen technique consists of particular light movements using thumbs or fingers on various parts of the body. These are often a cross-fibre movement over muscles, tendons, ligaments and most importantly fascia – sheets of connective tissue – which connect everything in the body including internal organs, central nervous system and the autonomic nervous system.
In turn muscle co-ordination, flexibility-postural alignment, restoring structural integrity, promoting pain relief and recovery of energy by way of vibrational and energetic release. The treatment is holistic, for it addresses the whole person, not just the condition.
Bowen is completely unique for two reasons:
Firstly, the results that people feel after the treatment and the long term effects are astounding, more often than not, are life-changing on the physical as well as emotional.
Secondly, the methodology is gentle, non-invasive and the treatment can be performed through light clothing. Rests are given between the series of moves in the treatment. This is very important as the therapist will usually leave the room. This allows communication to take place with the body’s cells and the brain in order for any gradual adjustments to be made. The subtle moves increase local blood and lymph circulation, encouraging and stimulating the body to heal. The technique is safe and effective for people of all ages and there are no known adverse effects.
Bear, Channl 4’s ‘Born Survivor, has regular Bowen treatments, and now regards these as an essential part of his preparation and recovery. “Bowen has helped keep my body together despite the continual bashing it takes,” he explains: “It’s a vital support in putting right a whole range of new aches and pains, making sure that old injuries don’t cause me problems, and helping me fight stress and fatigue.”
