Bowen Therapy is a holistic and multidimensional approach to pain relief and healing that intends to treat the underlying cause or source of many musculoskeletal, neurological, neuromuscular and other health or pain problems by working specifically on fascia. Fascia is a specific type of connective tissue that forms a three dimensional web surrounding every tissue and structure in the body. Therefore fascial dysfunction and dehydration can affect every structure, bone, muscle, tendon, ligament, nerve and organ in the body.
Recent studies have shown fascia to be the largest sensory organ in the body. It’s rich range of receptors powerfully influence the body’s neuro-muscular physiology in many complex ways. Through specific soft tissue or fascial release and integration techniques, Bowen therapy stimulates specific receptors that enable the body itself to correct dysfunctions and restore homeostasis (balance) on a holistic level. Bowen Therapy treats the whole body as evidenced by the experiences of people who find resolution to problems above and beyond those for which they have sought treatment.
