Bowen Technique is a gentle soft tissue remedial therapy that involves the therapist using fingers or thumbs to move over muscle, ligament, tendon and fascia in various parts of your body. It is performed over light clothing, in a series of gentle, specific moves. Countless people living with pain would be glad to hear that they might find relief without taking their clothes off.

The main feature of Bowen Technique is that between sets of moves the therapist will leave the room and allow the patient to rest. This is a key element of Bowen and is a defining aspect of the technique. The break is believed to allow the body the opportunity to create a  decision about what action needs to be taken in response to the moves given.

In a typical session, the practitioner will initially address the whole body. As a general rule, moves will be made over the lower and mid back and legs, the upper back and shoulders before finishing with neck moves. Each session will vary according to the presenting problems of the patient.
