Developed by Tom Bowen (1916-1982) with possible links to Chinese Medicine. He practiced Massage Therapist and through his work recognized many seemingly unrelated painful conditions within the musculoskeletal and neurological, also other health problems.
What is Bowen Therapy?
Bowen Therapy is a Holistic multidimensional approach to pain within the body. It heals through soft tissue or fascial release which is called Fascia. It can be found deep or superficial, it is the filmy stuff that holds the muscles and bone together, it is between the skin and the muscles also.
Why Is Fascia Important?
At one point all of these levels of the fascia connects to the spine joining the connective tissue coverings of the central nervous system within the unity of the body. Therefore, fascial dysfunction can affect every structure, muscle, nerve and organ in the body, having a powerful influence to the bodies neuromuscular physiology in many ways.
Benefits Of Bowen Therapy
Bowen Therapy through specific soft tissue or fascial release stimulates specific receptors that enable the body itself to connect dysfunctions and restore balance on a holistic level, treating the whole body.
Hydration of the body is of upmost importance for the fascia before and after a Bowen Therapy treatment. It allows the fascia to slide more easily, speeding up the healing process giving a better and quicker more effective outcome. Bowen Therapy assists treating many symptoms, the following in particular:
