The Bowen Technique was developed in Australia by the late Thomas Ambrose Bowen. The technique is gentle and noninvasive, and can be performed through clothing.
With Bowen misalignments commonly right themselves although there is no manipulation of joints or bones as in chiropractic. Muscle tensions and strains can be relieved and normal lymphatic flows restored – yet muscles are not squeezed as in massage. Meridians usually show immediate improvement yet the work is not based on meridians. Fascia re-hydrates, adhesions release and scar tissue softens in most cases yet there is no heavy pressure as in Rolfing or deep tissue work.
