Tom Bowen, in Geelong, Australia developed what is now called "The Bowen Technique". Others documented this technique and started teaching it in Australia. The first Bowen seminar in the United States was taught by Ossie Rentsch and sponsored by Milton Albrecht in September, 1989.
The Bowen Technique uses a series of simple, gentle moves across muscle and connective tissue. It is similar to tuning a stringed instrument that sends harmonic vibrations that balance the body. Because it works in harmony with the body, the Bowen Technique is incredibly effective for any muscular, skeletal, or nerve imbalance. It has also been successful in treating chronic pain due to injury. The technique is so gentle it can be used on anyone from infants to the elderly. It produces a deep relaxation and can release blocked emotional energy, which can accelerate the healing process.
The basic Bowen "Move" is precise and light. It targets specific muscles, and tendons. Using fingers and thumb, the area is manipulated, the muscle is then challenged and moved in the opposite direction. The patient then will be left for 2 minutes, this allows the released energy to travel through the body fully before the next "Move" is performed. This technique is effective for balancing the Autonomic Nervous System. This website is intended as a reference directory only, not as medical advice.
