Bowen Therapy

Bowen therapy is a gentle, soft tissue relaxation technique. Bowen therapy is an unusual form of bodywork, in that the moves are performed in specific locations on the body, followed by pauses of several minutes between sets of moves, to allow the body to integrate the effects of the work.

The light pressure stimulation to muscles, tendons and fascia that Bowen therapy provides as well as the the gentle rolling action over tissues initiates nerve reflexes. As a result Bowen therapy triggers a response not only at the site of the movement but throughout the whole body
