Bowen Technique is a non-invasive and gentle hands-on bodywork therapy that stimulates the autonomic nervous system (ANS) and promotes neuromuscular re-patterning. The ANS regulates 80% of the body’s functions and is chronically over-stimulated in most people, sometimes due to physical injury or often because of stress . These stressors can create imbalances in the body which can lead to pain and chronic conditions. Often referred to as the homeopathy of bodywork, Bowen utilizes a series of subtle inputs to stimulate tissue and nerve pathways signalling the body to heal and restore its natural balance.
