The Many Benefits of Bowen Technique

Bowen Therapy or Bowen Technique is a gentle means of soft tissue relaxation that does not involve external, forceful manipulation. Because of its gentle approach, all ages can undergo the therapy, including newborns and the very elderly (and everyone in between!). Bowen aims to achieve deep relaxation for the participant. When that level of relaxation is reached, the body becomes aligned, balanced, and able to heal itself.

When a participant undergoes Bowen Technique, he or she experiences a gentle massage of the muscles and tissues over the problem area. Practitioners often begin in the abdominal region, as this is seen as the “center” of the body. Practitioners leave the room before moving to another area of the body, slowing the pace and giving their clients a chance to relax even more.
