Bowen fascial release technique

The Bowen Fascial Release Technique is a remedial, hands-on therapy that is applied using very gentle pressure.

The practitioner uses thumbs and fingers on precise points of the body to perform Bowen’s unique sets of rolling-type moves which stimulate the muscles and soft tissue of the body.  There is no manipulation or adjustment of hard tissue and no force is used.  

The experience of a treatment is gentle, subtle and relaxing.  It is believed that the Bowen Technique prompts the body to reset, repair and balance itself and clients report the experience of pain relief, improvement of function and recovery of energy.

Many people have used Bowen to treat:

  • Frozen shoulder
  • Migraines
  • Sports injuries
  • Back pain
  • Neck Pain
  • Insomnia
