What is Bowen Therapy?
Bowen Therapy is a dynamic technique of muscle and connective tissue release for natural healing of a diverse range of body conditions. It was established during the 1950's by Tom Bowen in Australia. In a Bowen Treatment, a series of precise, gentle and painless pressure moves are applied with thumbs and fingers onto specific points of the muscles, tendons and ligaments to address the fascia lying beneath the skin and between the muscles. Stimulation of the fascia (a matrix of connective tissue) regains the body's structural balance, yielding effective relief of pain.

Who would benefit from Bowen Therapy?
Bowen Therapy is especially effective for chronic conditions both in humans and animals.

-Pain (back, neck, cancer, sciatic, knee, fibromyalgia, trigeminal neuralgia)
-Joint problems (frozen shoulder, neck restriction, meniscus injury, TMJ)
-Soft tissue injuries (sprain, strain, Achilles tendon injury, tendonitis, concussion)
-Motor dysfunctions (Parkinson's disease, stroke, spinal injury)
