Bowen Technique

What is the Bowen technique?

The Bowen Technique is named after an Australian called Tom Bowen who developed the technique in the 1980’s. It consists of a series of gentle rolling moves over muscle and soft tissue. The therapist uses her fingers or thumbs on specific areas, applying gentle pressure to effect a movement of the tissue. The majority of the moves can be performed through light clothing. The therapist leaves the room between moves to allow the person to relax and the body to listen to what moves have been made.
