Bowen Technique

The Bowen technique is beneficial to virtually any condition, but it is particularly effective with back and joint pain, and sports injuries. It is also said to relieve bronchitis and menstrual problems.

Pioneered by Tom Bowen in '50's Australia, this non-manipulative technique was later developed by an osteopath who trained practitioners around the world. Said to stimulate energy flow, this hands-on method maximises the body's ability to heal itself.

What to Expect
Clients are advised to wear loose clothing and are asked to lie on a soft treatment table. Using light rolling movements, the practitioner massages muscles and tendons to promote circulation, mobility and lymphatic drainage.
