  • The Bowen technique is a holistic therapy that concentrates on the ability of our own body’s healing capabilities. We are all one of a kind, so our conditions might not look alike. There is one doctor who knows exactly what is wrong with us and where is the cause of our problems – THE INNER DOCTOR! By applying the very gentle, specific Bowen moves, on very precise locations on the body, we awaken the Inner Doctor, who takes over and starts the self healing process!

    The genius of Tom Bowen, the founder of the Bowen Technique, was to discover that our body itself has the ability to address any conditions, once the total relaxation is achieved. We do not force an outside command on to the body; we just send the right messages for our organism to “reformat” the system, to return to the original matrix. It is many peoples believe that we were left by our Creator with all the necessary tools to survive and find means of existence and wellbeing within us. We do not solve the problems by intruding the body with artificial substances or methods that could do more harm than good; we just ask the body to take the necessary steps towards healing, in its own time, rhythm and limits.

    A Bowen treatment consists of gentle moves performed with the fingers or thumbs, on very specific locations on the body. There are important breaks of a few minutes between the sets of moves, needed for the body to process the messages sent through the neurotransmitters. This is the only therapy where the practitioner can treat up to ten patients at once, with no physical effort or energy consumption, with minimum involvement and maximum instant, results. Everybody, with the heart in the right place, can learn this fantastic technique, regardless of the previous educational background.
