Therapy for your Muscles with Bowen Therapy


What is Bowen Therapy?

Bowen Therapy is a form of soft-tissue bodywork that is applied through lightweight clothing or directly to the skin.


The Bowen technique involves gentle stretching and intergration moves accross fascia and trigger points that influence the soft tissue and facilitate self-healing.


SMART Bowen is an interpretation of the technique named after Tom Bowen, a highly successful Australian therapist who developed the technique and practiced in Geelong in the early sixties. Interpretations of the modality have been practiced world-wide now for over 50 years and are based on the discovery that many causes for musculoskeletal, neurological, neuromuscular and other health or pain problems could be found in the soft tissue or fascia.

Bowen Therapy incorporating Kinesiology


Our physical muscle tension and misalignments are often a result of stress. Even misaligments from an old injury can cause discomfort or pain as our nervous system is contiuously reinforcing old patterns of motion.

Complementing the physical treatment of Bowen therapy we can use techniques such as acupressure and vibrational and energetic healing tools to help break those patterns, bringing your body back to its original nature and healing abilities.


You might notice that many of those old programs not always cause pain. Many misaligments result in a lack of energy and vitality continously draining the body's resources.

This often results in digestive issues, trouble sleeping, reduced immunity, restlessness or fatigue and other health issues.


A session is always aimed towards the imbalance but also aims to address and release the underlying causes of the issue.


Balanced muscles and the release of old nervous patterns create more energy, vitality, ease and lets the body function at its fullest potential.
