Bowen therapy, also known as the Bowen technique or Bowenwork, is a gentle form of bodywork that aims to promote healing and restore balance in the body. It was developed in the 1950s by Australian bodyworker Tom Bowen. At Rooted Family Wellness Centre, this practice is offered by one of our Naturopaths, Dr. Ann Lawrence, ND.

What should I expect at my appointment?

Bowen therapy involves the practitioner using light, rolling movements over specific points on the body, with breaks in between each set of movements to allow the body to respond. These movements are designed to stimulate the body's natural healing response, and can help to relieve tension, pain, and other symptoms.

What can you treat with Bowen Therapy?

The therapy is generally considered safe and non-invasive, and can be used to treat a variety of conditions, including musculoskeletal pain, headaches, respiratory issues, back pain, neck pain, headaches, sports injuries, digestive problems, and stress-related conditions. However, as with any form of therapy, it is important to consult with a qualified practitioner and to inform them of any pre-existing health conditions or concerns before beginning treatment.
