What is the Bowen Technique?


Rather than focusing on a single complaint, Bowtech addresses the entire body, by restoring balance via the autonomic nervous system (ANS). The ANS controls over 80% of bodily functions and is very susceptible to external stressors. The Bowtech practitioner delivers signals to the ANS at specific locations (on muscles, tendons, ligaments or nerves), and the body does the rest, responding in its own time, as it is able.


The technique consists of a series of precise and gentle moves on skin, or over light clothing should the client prefer, interspersed with frequent pauses that allow the body time to respond. Many people are surprised, and even a little put out, that there is such a light pressure involved, especially those used to the heavier touch of deep tissue massage or other techniques.

 


If you have a bicycle wheel that is not functioning properly, you wouldn't take it to someone who attempts to pull it into shape!
You wouldn't take it to someone who pummels away at individual spokes!
You would take it to someone who understands the dynamic and workings of the wheel, who would then make precise adjustments on various spokes as necessary to perfectly align the wheel again.

With the Bowen Technique, we make similar precise moves.

         
 
 
 


   


A Bowtech treatment may last from twenty minutes to an hour. Most often, a surprisingly few sessions are needed to alleviate complaints, whether structural or functional, even if long-standing. And the results hold for a long time, generally until there is a re-injury.

With its gentle touch and minimal intervention, the technique is considered appropriate to use on anyone from newborns to the elderly, with any condition from sports injuries to chronic or organic complaints.
