Are you one of those people who have tried everything to feel well again but nothing seems to help, or do you just want to try a different approach to helping yourself heal and be the best you can be?
Thomas Ambrose Bowen-1916–1982, an Australian, developed what we know today as Bowen Therapy. In the early 1950s, Tom Bowen had a day job at Geelong Cement Works as a general laborer, but on his time off, he was treating sport and work injuries. Gradually through word of mouth, his popularity for healing pain traveled, and he began to develop a large clientele.
In the late 1950s, Tom Bowen began a full practice. Although the results of his therapy were called miraculous, he worked very hard and studied long hours for his abilities. His favorite source of information was osteopathic books.
Tom believed that any muscular dysfunction within the body played a major role in the whole body to function at an optimum level and just treating the symptoms very rarely addressed the root causes. He treated the whole body by developing a safe and gentle system of unique moves that the body seemed to understand and respond to. Tom Bowen's underlying concept, which resides at the root of his work, was based on the principle that structure governs function.
Bowen preferred to let the bodywork session speak for itself. Nowadays, one theory of how Bowen Therapy works in the body is that a Bowen move is similar to strumming a stringed instrument. On a stringed instrument, a string is held at a specific point to obtain a correct tone. Changing the point where the string is held will change the tone or vibrational frequency. The body, comparing it to a musical instrument, can get stuck in a discomforting tone.
The body is meant to protect itself and heal from any disorder whether it originates from a physical, mental, emotional, or spiritual trauma. However, there are times when the body is unable to complete a healing cycle and becomes stuck, unable to totally heal, and that's when the Bowen Technique can be beneficial.
A Bowen move helps to unlock the fine connections of the brain and the body, reopening communication down to the cellular level. This unlocking retunes the body, turning off the pain cycle it's been locked in and reopening the healthy core memory leading the body to heal itself.
Bowen Therapy can also be likened to a reprogramming of the body's computer system. The Bowen software assists in rewiring and recruiting the body's hard drive so that it doesn't crash as often and has a higher speed of responses to stress, trauma, and injury.
Bowen Therapy complements and works synergistically with other healing methods, but when too many commands are put onto the body's communication center/computer, there may be a shutdown/freeze and very little or no benefit will come about. That is why it is recommended that Bowen Therapy be used in rotation with other healing therapies.
During a Bowen session, a series of moves are performed on the body. The move is started over a group of muscle or tendon. The move is a light pulling back of the skin till there is no more give and then a firmer rolling motion forward. After each set of moves, a few minutes of pause is needed where the practitioner leaves the treatment room to allow the body to integrate them and start the process to heal. A session generally lasts 1 hour.
A Week Before The Treatment:Avoid having any massage or other kinds of bodywork like chiropractic, acupuncture, physiotherapy, and dental drilling.
Before the Session:
A Day of After the Treatment:
The Following Week:
It's highly recommended that the client commits to at least a repatterning schedule of 3 sessions with 3 to 9 being an ordinary treatment protocol, coming in for a treatment every 5 to 10 days with 7 days being optimum. This establishes a pattern of healing in the system.
If this isn't established, the client may not get the desirable results. With chronic conditions, ongoing treatments may be needed to obtain and maintain positive results. Many times, clients will come back periodically every month or so for a session to help keep the body balanced. Clients doing this have noticed a reduction in illnesses and stress.
With Bowen Therapy, the body is always the master healer. At times, the present complaint isn't the first one to be resolved. The healing body may have underlying imbalances that need to be addressed first. In these cases, some clients may experience increases in symptoms. This is a good sign: it means deep level healing is occurring. After this phase is complete, clients experience relief from symptoms and a deeper sense of health.
Bowen treatments are useful from newborns to the elderly. Chronically ill patients benefit as well as the disabled. Some of the diseases, which have demonstrated improvement from Bowen treatments, are multiple sclerosis, cerebral palsy, and muscular dystrophy. Bowen therapy uplifts the spirit. Clients often state they feel happier.
Well, you may want to try the Bowen Technique, a new concept in body therapy from Australia. This therapy is becoming well known in assisting the body to release blockages, freeing it from the pain cycles it's been stuck in and begin self-healing.
Bowen Therapy is a new, holistic technique in body therapy from Australia. This dynamic therapy stimulates the body to let go of pain cycles (Ischemia) caused by traumas, stresses, and diseases. As these pain cycles are released, the healing abilities of the body are awakened, bringing pain relief and peace of mind. Benefits are usually apparent within 3 to 5 sessions.
Reiki is a spiritual energy healing practice with its roots coming from Japan where Mikao Usui (1865-1926) became enlightened to this healing energy. Overtime Mikao developed a system of teaching Reiki to many healing arts students who practiced Reiki and passed it to others as well.
Reiki, comes from the Japanese word meaning “Rei” meaning “Universal Life” and “Ki” meaning ”Energy”.
Reiki doesn’t involve any massage or any sort of religious affiliations. A person does not need to believe in Reiki for it to work. A Reiki practitioner performs Reiki by placing the hands upon or closely above the client as the client comfortably lies down on a massage table or comfortable cushioned position with eyes closed peacefully.
The practitioner sets intentions of highest good for the client and sessions and basically turns on Reiki energy to flow through the palms to the clients body. The Reiki practitioner gradually moves to specific treatment spots throughout the session which an last 60 or more minutes depending upon the clients needs. Often times the client relaxes deeply and may even fall asleep during the session. After session many clients feel better grounded, rested, lessening or no more pain and a deep sense of peace and calmness.

This is to thank you for your excellent services and expertise in the fields of Bowen, Aromatherapy and Massage. Every time I have a session with you in the last year I have benefited so very much and on so many level from your wonderful treatments.
The Bowen Therapy has helped me with longstanding pain in neck and back that other practitioners were unable to release, the massage have helped me relax and eliminate the cramps in my legs, and the Aromatherapy has nourished my physical and emotional being on a very deep level.
I cannot thank you enough for your help in managing my health in such a positive way and I gladly from Penn Valley all the way to Chico to enjoy your amazing services.

Thank you so very much for you last Bowen treatment. I had pains underneath my breast for a long while and was about to have it checked out, but when I told you about it you did the Bowen Lymphatic drainage on it and the pains disappeared. I want to express my sincere gratitude for this. I can only imagine how many women could be helped by you and avoid terrible suffering. You way is so much more effective because it goes to the root of the problem- a clogged Lymphatic system.
Your treatments have always been outstanding, but now that you have added the bio-mat to your treatment tools they have become even more powerful. You are an amazing professional.
Wishing you the very best in life, love and work, in gratitude.” - Ursela Rabe, Feng Shui Master/ Astrologer/Artist
"Bowen Therapy has changed my life. I heard about Bowen from a co-worker of mine that has found great relief from her Fibromyalgia symptoms after using Bowen. I am 29 years old and at 27 was diagnosed with Breast Cancer. I opted for a double mastectomy and after nine surgeries my reconstruction was complete. I lost most of my mobility and suffered pain in my left arm. I also received chemotherapy and this negatively affected my digestion, hair, skin and nail beds. I was also suffering from depression. I have gone to Bowen five times and have had amazing results. My stomach and digestion problems have practically disappeared. My symptoms of depression have lessened. My hair, skin and nails have greatly improved and they are the healthiest and strongest they have since before my diagnosis with cancer. The biggest change I have gained from this wonderful treatment is that I have an overall sense of well-being and peace with my body and mind. I feel that these treatments have saved my life, both physically and mentally.” - Charlene Armitage, Chico, CA
