Uniquely Australian, Bowen Therapy was developed in the 1950’s in Geelong, Victoria, by Tom Bowen.
Hence the name Bowen Therapy or Bowenwork.
It was after Tom Bowen’s death in 1982 that one of his students began to teach Bowen Therapy as it became known. Since then Bowen Therapy has made its way around the world, all the while endeavouring to stay true to Tom Bowen’s work.

Bowen, is a gentle form of body work where subtle moves are performed over muscles and connective tissue sending messages to our autonomic nervous system. This allows the body to relax and therefore promote balance and wellbeing.
Results can be remarkable and often only a few sessions are needed to correct the presenting problem. There are essential pauses during a session that allow the body time to respond and begin the healing process.
Unlike many other body therapies, the Bowen Therapy does not use forceful manipulation.
