Tom Bowen was born around the corner from here in Brunswick and practiced in Geelong. The technique originates from his work with tens of thousands of patients. Towards the end of his career, we are told he acknowledged six men as having a substantial understanding of his approach.

He encouraged each of them to pass on his understanding of the work to future generations. Today Bowen therapy is taught and practiced all over the world.

Bowen releases the muscles and re-aligns the body.

Treatments can be applied trough clothing or directly on the skin.

Come get Bowen if you are:

Sore, mis-aligned, in pain,

Stressed or ‘wired’

Need balance and relaxation

Bowen, kinesiology or both? Clients often ask me if the physical treatment with Bowen therapy can be combined with mind-body work using kinesiology.

Here is my most recent response to an email I received from a client who suffers from jaw pain and sinus issues.

Her question initial question was: "Can Bowen therapy help with middle ear issues and jaw problems?"

Bowen is a form of myofascial release which means that it works on the

connective tissue that holds our tissue, organs, muscles and bones together.

Your condition may benefit from Bowen work as it can help release the

tension in your jaw and can help promote the drainage of fluid around your

sinuses and the middle ear. Even though there is no guarantee on this

effect, Bowen definitely assists the body's self-healing mechanisms and can

give your nervous and muscular system a lot of relief.

This lead to her second question: "Can Bowen and kinesiology be combined?"

Yes, Bowen and kinesiology can definitely be combined. It is so important to

find the underlying patterns of the stresses in our muscles and tissues and

many of them originate from mental and energetic patterns that show up in

how our nervous system responds to those stresses. Bowen addresses this

naturally and kinesiology helps to create awareness, break patterns and

shine a light on the underlying causes. Our bodies are really wise and if we

truly connect and listen in it will show us the right steps to assist our

healing and enjoy the journey at the same time. This is how we explore and

feel drawn to certain things like finding the right chiropractor, start that

mediation practice, do the yoga class and whatever else you feel drawn to.

I wish you an amazing journey and if you'd like to book in I'd be happy to

be a part of it.

Your body has a still-point – an inner knowing of what it needs to feel aligned, balanced and healthy.

When people ask me how Bowen is different to other forms of physical therapy my answer often varies. But one thing I always mention is for people to imagine the difference between force and stillness.

Bowen to me feels like the body becomes still. Think about how stillness in the mind may feel.. What does it feel like not to be overwhelmed with the sheer force of our thoughts, past and future, the never ending to do list. The weight of the ‘to be’ list. And just be. Be in the moment doing only what’s in front of you. One thing at a time. One thought at a time. Bowen does this with your body.
