What is Bowtech, The Original Bowen Technique?

Bowtech allows the body to reset and heal itself. A Bowen treatment consists of a series of gentle moves on skin (or through light clothing). A session usually lasts from half an hour to an hour and frequently results in a deep sense of overall relaxation, allowing the body to recharge and balance itself.

There are many theories as to how Bowtech works, but none completely explain its holistic effect and often outstanding results. It does not impose a particular approach on the client. Instead, it encourages a gentle response which empowers the body’s own resources to heal itself. Bowen moves are a study in delicacy, being light, gentle and very precise.

The Bowen Technique is not necessarily a ‘long-term’ treatment programme. Most clients find that a small number of treatments are adequate even for long standing complaints.

Where did Bowen Originate?
The Bowen Technique was developed the 1950’s by the late Tom Bowen in Geelong, Australia. Although he had no formal training in health – care, Bowen became a celebrated therapist, regularly training over 13,000 patients a year according to Australian government statisttics. In 1974, he invited Oswald Rentsch and his wife Elaine to study with him and document his work. It was not until Bowen’s death in 1982, that they began to teach the technique in several continents. Dedicated to preserving the technique and ensuring tat it is taught in its original form, they founded the Bowen Therapy Acadamy of Australia in 1987. Since then they have taught over 9000 therapists world wide.
