The experienced and trained Bowen therapists at Geelong Natural Therapies use the gentle holistic Bowen technique to trigger the body’s healing mechanisms to assist in pain relief and healing.

Bowen therapy was developed by renowned natural therapist Tom Bowen, who lived and practiced in Geelong. Tom Bowen developed the theory that the underlying cause or source of many musculoskeletal, neurological, neuromuscular and other health or pain problems could be found in the soft tissue or fascia. Fascia is a specific type of connective tissue that forms a three-dimensional web surrounding every tissue in the body.

Bowen therapists stimulate specific receptors within the fascia that enable the body itself to correct dysfunctions and restore its natural balance.

The Bowen technique is safe to use on anyone, from newborns to the elderly and for any musculoskeletal or related neurological complaints. Bowen therapy is a holistic treatment that aims to treat the cause of problems, rather than the symptoms.

Patients interested in Bowen therapy might also consider other treatments including dry needling in Geelong and remedial massage.
