Bowen Therapy is a soft tissue technique where rolling moves are made over precise points of the body. It can be used to treat musculoskeletal or related neurological problems including acute sports injuries and chronic or organic conditions.

Bowen Therapy is a noninvasive technique that uses a series of small, gentle hand movements over muscles, tendons, ligaments, joints, nerves, and fascia to promote relief from musculoskeletal and related neurological complaints.

The precise, continuous movements gently stretch your muscles and fascia from one side to the other.
Bowen Therapy has a very specific effect on the muscles and tendons, as well as the myofascia (fascia)—a network of connective tissue that surrounds your body’s organs and muscles. There is increasing recognition of the importance of fascia on your body’s physiology and function. (Bowen Association of Australia)
