Bowen Technique

Bowen Technique is based on the work of the Australian therapist Tom Bowen (1916-1982). It is a targeted neuro-muscular skeletal therapy which seeks to restore healthy spinal function by addressing imbalances associated with the pelvis, spine and skull and then integrate that with the rest of the body.

My approach to Bowen is inspired by the work of Graham Pennington and his assessment methods which enable me to target the primary dysfunction within the body. Graham’s work has evolved from over 30 years of clinical practice and 20 years with the help of Romney Smeeton (DC). Tom Bowen’s work is based on the original philosophy behind osteopathy and chiropractic but uses different tools.

The Bowen ‘move’ activates neuro pro-preceptors within the body’s muscular skeletal system. It targets the tight muscles and their attachments to the skeletal system, releasing the tension of the muscles that cause misalignments of the spine. This allows for spinal realignment without forceful manipulations.

Bowen Technique also works on the fascia of the body which is a liquid bio-matrix that covers the muscles, organs and nerves.

Bowen is effective as it stimulates change in all these systems simultaneously; it releases muscular tension, corrects skeletal misalignments and activates a fascial release.
