Bowtech – the original Bowen Technique
Since its inception in Australia in the 1950’s Bowen Therapy has evolved into an extremely effective bodywork therapy. Developed by a man passionate about alleviating human suffering, Tom Bowen perfected his technique over many years in his Geelong clinic.
A treatment consists of a series of gentle but precise mobilisations performed over the insertion or centre of muscles, tendons, ligaments and nerve pathways. These specific moves facilitate fascial or connective tissue release thereby enabling the body, through the autonomic nervous system (ANS), to begin rebalancing. Increased range of motion (ROM) and decreased pain often happen by the end of the initial treatment however, more often symptoms gradually improve over the following days as the body continues to rebalance.
Research in the field of alternate treatments for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome has shown Bowen Therapy to be effective in enabling sufferers to resume normal duties when previously only light duties were possible.
