The Bowen Technique in Nottingham
Bowen Therapy Academy of Australia
The Bowen Technique originated in the 1950’s with Tom Bowen from Australia. Oswald Rentsch an osteopath and his wife Elaine, studied with Tom Bowen and subsequently formed the Bowen therapy of Australia teaching the technique worldwide.
The Bowen Technique is a gentle non-invasive treatment for the whole body. It works with a series of light movements on the muscle and connective tissues using the thumb and fingers. There is no direct manipulation of bones. People are astounded how effective the Bowen Technique is at helping so many problems and they report an increased sense of well being after treatment. Bowen brings many benefits; more energy, improved sleep, lasting pain relief, increased mobility and greater relaxation.
The Bowen moves are very precise, e.g. some are along the meridians along the meridians or energy channels that flow through the body. Each move sends a signal along the nerve pathway to the brain where a response is stimulated which reflexes the muscles and releases any blockages in the meridian.
The body is encouraged to balance itself and is given time in-between the moves to make subtle and fine adjustments that relieve tension and pain
Sessions vary from between 30 and 45 minutes and can be performed through light clothing. The Bowen technique is helpful for many conditions e.g. back pain, neck pain, joint pain, sports injuries, frozen shoulder, RSI tennis elbow, hay fever and respiratory problems. There is no situation where it cannot be safely used.
Qualified therapists have BTA and BTER after their name.
