Bowen Therapy

Bowen therapy is a new concept in the world of alternative therapies, and it is neither derived from, nor similar to any other physical modality of treating the body. It is based on the fact that, once the whole body is totally relaxed, there is an inherent ability of the body to address and balance any physical or emotional issues.
The practitioner’s moves made on the body send signals, messages to the nervous system at specific locations (on muscles, ligaments, or nerves), and the body responds in its own time, within the limits of its capacity to heal.


How does it work?

There are several theories on how it works, all of them explained on the official site of the Bowen technique

It's all about relaxation

The technique induces a profound state of relaxation. In a deep state of relaxation, the brain switches from the sympathetic system (the one that keeps us active and going) to the parasympathetic system (the one which functions in periods of rest and relaxation, and which controls over 80% of the bodily functions – which is very susceptible to stress) giving it the possibility to rebalance itself.

It helps set fascia in balance

The connective tissue that links all organs and tissues and binds them, called fascia, contracts after a trauma (injuries, tapping etc.), influencing the normal functioning of muscles and bones. Bowen work helps relax it and bring it to normal.

It brings to normal organs and systems

The receptors of the nerves situated at the superficial level of the body (skin) will take the messages given through Bowen to the brain, inviting the brain to normalize the functions of the zone in question.

Acupuncture points and meridians

Many moves done in this technique overlap with the energetic meridians described by acupuncture and Chinese medicine in general.
