What is Bowen Technique?

Bowen Therapy is a light touch therapy that works on specific points on the body, thus stimulating the body's own healing mechanism, activating the immune system and addressing issues around circulation and assists in re-alignment of the body. 

Through using gentle, rolling type movements  with the fingers and thumbs on the skin and over specific muscle  groups, Bowen helps to release the fascia that lies under the skin to  relieve  deep seated tension and 'asks' your body to address physical  imbalances and heal injuries. 

This, in turn, promotes relief from  pain and helps renew energy. Between each set of moves, there is a rest  period of a few minutes to allow your system to absorb the information  it has received and to initiate the healing process.  

During a treatment people experience a deep state of relaxation and it is common for people to fall asleep while their body is in healing mode. 

Bowen Technique works for both humans as well as animals

What conditions can Bowen Technique address?

The  Bowen Technique can address many conditions and is so  gentle that it can be carried out equally  well on pregnant moms, new born babies, the elderly and those bound to a  wheelchair or bed. 

It can support those receiving palliative care or  invasive treatments and also those not injured or in pain who  just want the opportunity to completely relax every now and again or  optimise sports performance and minimise the risk of injury.
After a treatment problems that can range from recently sustained injuries to chronic aches or pains significantly diminish or completely disappeared.    

Feelings of clarity and improved energy, increased libido, better co-ordination, reduced pain and swelling are commonly reported

Bowen Technique for Dogs

Bowen Technique is  a holistic form of therapy. Which means that it "treats the  body as a whole, without referral to named disease". So Bowen Technique does not treat the veterinary-diagnosed disease or condition per se, but  treats the dog, on the day.

Although a  dog may be brought with a condition such as rear-leg lameness, other parts are addressed; including the  back, neck, and front-legs, in order to address other possible problem  areas caused as a result of the dog compensating for the presenting  condition. 

In this case the dog may well have tried to shift its weight  forward in order to relieve the pain in the rear-legs, but this, in  turn, will affect the carriage of the head and neck, and require the  front-legs to carry more load. By addressing these other areas,  Bowen Technique  maximises the dog’s attempts to return its body to proper balance.


Bowen Technique for Horses

  Bowen is useful for a wide range of conditions from acute pain to chronic conditions, including:

  • Unlevelness, disunited gait or irregular action.
  • Uneven wear of shoes.
  • Muscle atrophy or uneven development.
  • Stiffness on one rein.
  • ‘Cold back’ or sore back.
  • Weakened immune/lymphatic system.
  • Uncharacteristic change of temperament or deterioration of performance.

     Many older horses that have been retired due to stiffness have returned to gentle hacking following Bowen Therapy.
     All horses will benefit greatly from Bowen Therapy. A treatment  can help your horse to gain more elevation in his stride, freedom  through the shoulder and power from the hindquarters.
