at The Art of Body
Bowen Therapy is a non-invasive, complementary holistic therapy. It targets certain points on the body with gentle rolling movements to help it balance, repair and reset itself. Clients are believed to experience energy recovery, a reduction in pain and an improvement of function.

What is Bowen Technique?
The Bowen Therapy Technique was first brought to England in 1993 and was developed by Tom Bowen (1916-1982) who lived and worked in Geelong, Australia.
To carry out a Bowen treatment the therapist makes a series of gentle but precise soft tissue movements. These are rolling moves with thumbs or fingers. Bowen moves are made on very precise junctions of muscle, ligaments and bone, of nerve pathways, of blood and lymph circulation facilitators and of energy flow. There is an ever changing action of communications between these systems.
To make a Bowen move the muscle is, first, gently stretched, which activates the sensory nerves to pass information to the brain about the state of the muscle, tendon or ligament in question. Tendon sensory nerves are sensitive to resistance rather than stretch. The body has its own blueprint of homeostasis (perfection). If the sensory message received by the brain, when the Bowen move is made, is not correct, then the body goes into action to rebalance the area.
The theory has been put forward that the body is a network of transmitters and receivers. They all operate, or attempt to operate, on a specific energy frequency and by making small moves throughout the body, we create a vibrational field that allows all the receptors and transmitters to operate evenly.
In effect, where there have been faults, the action is likened to replacing a broken fuse, therefore reconnecting the electrical properties of the body. The concept is, that the action of Bowen, jams a nerve signal that has become faulty, the body, therefore, will re-set the signal to the default (correct) setting.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY
Danella G, Australia
I highly recommend if you are full of muscle aches and pains as I was until the therapist was able to give a Bowen treatment to me and other members of my family during our stay in Seminyak. . If you decide to go for a treatment remember to wear your loose clothing. Thank you for your healing hands and words of wisdom to think about.
Liz, South Africa
I have had an ongoing lower back issue for years. After one session of Bowen my pain and discomfort reduced from 7/10 to 3/10. I have an overall feeling of wellness, ease in movement and peace. Thank you for your ongoing commitment to health and your generosity of being.

Excellent clear instruction in pilates moves and release techniques together with a Bowen treatment really made our holiday and we left feeling stronger, freer and motivated to continue what we've learned! My husband said he learned more in 3 sessions than last 20 years! Can't wait to come back when next in Bali! Highly recommend!
