As Bowen therapy is a relatively young modality in comparison to Acupuncture, Chiropractic, Massage, and Osteopathy, research and development are still in their infancy. However, in the last 15 years, there has been tremendous advancement in medical science, particularly in the areas of neurology and anatomy, and this has given us an insight into how Bowen therapy can impact the body in a very positive way. Of particular interest is the latest fascial research. This structure (our living matrix) forms a sea of dynamic fluid-filled canals throughout our entire body, connecting bones, tendons muscles, and organs to the minutest cell. Recently discovered and named the largest sensory organ in the body, responsible for integral communication and structural integrity. The unique Bowen technique cross-fiber moves performed on precise locations, open up facial canals allowing for hydration, electrical conductivity, communication, and structural tensegrity rebalance. Therefore, increasing blood circulation, hydration, nutrient availability, detoxification, free flow of energy, and postural alignment. Advancements in neuroscience have given us the understanding that our autonomic nervous system (subconscious operator) controls all our body functions with the help of the Vagus Nerve. Chronic health issues such as pain, arthritis, blood pressure, inflammatory conditions, autoimmune illnesses, etc are often the result of our control center malfunctioning. We are learning that inherited predisposition DNA only plays a small part in illness manifestation. Unhealthy lifestyle choices, exposure to external stresses, and sympathetic (stress mode) overload are large contributing factors and may switch on DNA illness indicators. Bowen therapy changes the control center of the brain by stimulating parasympathetic activity via various nerve receptors. This condition optimises whole-body function and results in energy being available for repair and healing. In addition, brain function is enhanced by switching on cognitive function, with increased concentration ability, memory recall, creative thinking, and positive feeling enhancement. We are still only scratching the surface of understanding the full potential of Bowen therapy. Further research developments are underway to support the evolution of the industry.

Bowen Therapy, also known as the Bowen Technique or Bowenwork, is a form of hands-on bodywork that involves gentle, rolling movements over the muscles, tendons, and other soft tissues of the body. It was developed in the 1950s by Australian Tom Bowen, who claimed that the technique could help alleviate pain, improve posture, and enhance overall health and well-being.
During a Bowen Therapy session, the practitioner will typically perform a series of small, precise movements on specific areas of the body, such as the back, neck, shoulders, or legs. These movements are designed to stimulate the body's natural healing mechanisms and help restore balance and harmony within the body.
Bowen Therapy is often used to treat a variety of conditions, including back pain, neck pain, headaches, sports injuries, and stress-related disorders. It is also sometimes used as a complementary therapy alongside conventional medical treatments.
One of the unique aspects of Bowen Therapy is that it typically involves only a few, brief sessions, rather than ongoing, long-term treatments. This can make it a more convenient and cost-effective option for some people. As Bowen can activate the bodies entire healing system many clients report increased physical and mental well-being as well as bringing relief and correction to the pain, injury or disease.
