What is Bowen?

Bowen Therapy is a soft tissue remedial technique that guides the body to self-correct using precise and gentle-moderate maneuvers on the soft tissues (tendons, ligaments, muscles etc). The objective of the technique is to ultimately balance structure and function and achieve homeostasis. One of the key principles of Bowen is the osteopathic principle: "The body's structure governs its function."
Bowen aims to achieve neuromuscular balance and nervous system regulation.

It is postulated that Bowen works on the interchange between the nervous system and soft tissue sensory receptors. Using these small and brief cross-fibre 'stretch' motions on the connective tissues in specific locations of the body, the central nervous system is stimulated, changing its motor output to the tissues - effectively promoting homeostasis and structural balance.

Bowen works on many different levels, including stimulation of receptors (as stated above), piezoelectricity, regulating inflammatory response, toning sympathetic activity, to name a few.

Bowen stimulates proprioception as well as interoception - the latter achieving profound changes in overall wellbeing.

To me, Bowen combines the relaxation and emotional uplift of reiki, the muscle-melting elements of massage, and the body realigning benefits of osteopathy and chiropractic.
