The Bowen Technique

Dr Alison Merrick

The Bowen technique is a soft tissue remedial therapy, named after the Australian Tom Bowen who developed it in the 20th century. The technique is non-invasive and drug-free.  It involves using fingers and thumbs to move over muscles, tendons and soft tissues in the body.

The Bowen Technique aims to rebalance the whole body, as treating symptoms in isolation can lead to recurring problems.  Back and neck pain are the most common reasons for seeking out Bowen, but many have found relief with a variety of conditions from asthma to arthritis and insomnia to ME.

The Bowen Technique is suitable and safe for everyone from new born babies to the elderly, including the frail and mums-to-be.
