One in five Kiwis is living with chronic pain. Although medication or surgery can be considered, a large portion of people seek effective treatment such as Bowen Therapy which can be safely complemented by conventional medicine as a primary trial. Bowen brings pain relief through body balancing by gently stimulating fascia, the tensional network.

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.
