Pain is a universal condition and is experienced by everyone at some stage in life. A high percentage of people are searching for alternative methods of therapy to manage their own bodily stresses.
Bowen Therapy is an all embracing holistic approach to improve the quality of life and may be used for a broad range of conditions from sports and work injuries to chronic complaints. Bowen Therapy is also useful on many organic conditions such as asthma, headaches, circulatory problems and lymphatic and venous drainage, whilst also helping assimilate nutrients and eliminate toxins.
Thomas A Bowen (1916 - 1982) developed this technique in Geelong, Victoria. After serving in WWII, Bowen became interested in ways to alleviate human suffering. He began to notice that when he made certain moves on the body, it had particular effects.
This technique is unique in that it was developed without any previous training. In fact he frequently stated his work was a gift from God. He regularly treated over
13, 000 patients per year and in dedication to his work Geelong erected a statue in his honour.
Over a period of years he developed the system to the professional modality as it is practised today. There are over 30 000 practitioners working in 38 countries in the world.

We discuss your health issues and then I will assess your posture and check for any restrictions in your range of movement while formulating at a treatment plan. I will then ask you to lie on the massage table so that I can apply the specific Bowen moves required for your particular condition.
During the treatment there are pauses to allow your body to relax so that the treatment can take affect. Also so that your body receives clear messages. Moves are generally applied directly onto skin, but may be done through light clothing and no oils or lotions are used. Treatments usually take an hour but can take less time, depending on individual needs.
