Frequently Asked Questions

What is Bowen Therapy?

Bowen Therapy is a bodywork modality that aims to impact the connective tissue of the body - fascia - through gentle manipulations in specific sequences. Fascia is the blueprint of the body, interpenetrating and surrounding all muscles, organs, ligaments, and nerves - it is what holds us together and connects our body to every other part. Through manipulations of the fascia, Bowen Therapy works on a cellular level to reset nerve pathways, encourage blood and lymphatic flow, stabalise muscles and ligaments, and support balance in an animals overall body.
