Bowen Technique is a gentle manipulation of the muscles of the body, intended to trigger the nervous system to begin a process of self-healing. Each series of moves on the muscles, tendons, and nerves, is followed by a pause to allow the body to integrate the information. The objective of each treatment is to restore the normal, healthy and balanced functioning of the body.
The Bowen Technique has its origins in the work done by Tom Bowen in the mid-1970’s in Australia. The Bowen Technique has become part of an osteopathic service of soft tissue manipulation. It is often characterized as a combination of massage and acupressure, a neuromuscular reflex therapy.
The core of our alternatives to acupuncture is The Bowen Technique: a hands-on holistic method, leveraging a number of specialized osteopathic techniques. It is based on the gentle and precise manipulation of fascia, nerves and muscle tissue that allows the nervous system to begin the process of self-healing. This process typically will continue for several days after the treatment.
In addition to the Bowen Technique, we also practice the Niromathe Method for dealing with osteopathic lesions.
The Niromathe Method finds its origin in the work performed by “bone setters” in ancient India. It was further researched and developed in Europe. This technique is known in the world of osteopathy and manual therapy as a unique and effective process, that improves blood flow, and releases the fascia around muscles and joints where an osteopathic lesion has formed.
Niromathe Method is a less invasive means to deal with osteopathic lesions of all forms via the manipulation of the skin.
