I was having some neck and back problems earlier this year and was referred by a friend to a Bowen therapist. The treatment was incredibly gentle and the results remarkable.

Originating in Australia fifty odd years ago, Bowen therapy is gaining recognition as a viable holistic and non-invasive therapy in the quest for health and wellness.

A Bowen therapist will trigger the body's innate self-healing mechanisms through a few simple adjustments to muscle and fascia, stimulating receptors which help restore homeostasis (balance and a stable internal environment). Fascia are connective tissue which basically hold the body together, and disturbances to it can have negative ramifications throughout every part of the body.

Getting a massage for a back ache may feel great but it's unlikely to elicit a cure. Bowen therapy on the other hand goes straight to the problem (rather than the symptom) and activates the body's healing mechanism.

The practitioner will ask you a few questions about the problem before the treatment, during which you remain clothed. The average cost of a one hour session is $70 (comparable with massage) and can be claimed through most private health insurers.

The next time you have a musculo-skeletal problem, or are simply feeling tight, tense, stressed or just out of whack, consider this incredibly gentle and effective therapy. I am personally completely enamoured of it.
