What is Bowen Therapy?
Bowen Therapy is a holistic technique that works with the fascia (soft connective tissue) of the body, muscles tendons and ligaments.

How does Bowen Therapy work?

In clinical terms:

  • This therapy breaks apart the adhesions or crystallisation of the fascia.
  • It stimulates the nerves that run up the spine and in the muscles, tendons and ligaments.

Breaking down these adhesions allows information to travel in the correct and most direct manner throughout the fascia accessing the whole of the body. The gentle triggering of nerves within the muscles, tendons and ligaments that are located along the spine and around other key areas of the body also utilises the nervous system to reinforce the correct messages.

The Fascia and how it works.
The Fascia is fibrous connective tissue made up of collagen cells and fluid which can look like a spider web or sheet of fibre that holds our body in shape. It surrounds every organ, blood vessel, bone, muscle and nerve fibre holding it all in place. The fascia touches every other system in the body and so is the perfect medium to send message throughout the whole body.

It is designed to stretch and move with us and is instrumental in proper motor coordination enabling us to move and live comfortably. It is a water-based communications system that travels at a speed of 1207kmph as opposed to the central nervous system which travels as just over 241kmph.

Bowen therapy is instrumental in supporting the body to move from Fight, Flight and Freeze (sympathetic nervous system) to Rest, Recovery and Recuperation (parasympathetic nervous system).
