Bowen Healing System™
Natural Australian Healing Technique
The Answer to Optimal Health and Pain Elimination
Bowen Healing System is a multi-dimensional healing system that makes other treatments obsolete! It is legendary for eliminating pain, stress, tension, alleviating suffering, and resetting the body to heal a very long list of conditions. It was discovered and initially developed by the late Tom Bowen of Geelong, Australia.
It is an all natural healthcare solution that safely and gently awakens and revives the self-healing mechanisms of the body. Treatment is performed by applying a minimal amount of treatment to carefully selected areas of the body to generate the greatest positive results. It naturally simultaneously addresses multiple conditions as it rapidly restores the body to a state of optimal
health and healing without the need for medication or surgery.
Simply put, Bowen is the best-kept secret in healthcare today!
Bowen works by using a particular series of “activations,” a type of gentle soft tissue manipulation, over
precise points on the body. The practitioner uses a specific series of activations to address the body in very particular ways to elicit specific healing responses. The activations used are determined by what area of the body needs to be released and/or what specific health issue needs to be addressed.
The practitioner only performs activations that are in agreement with the body’s specific needs and what it can process and use that day. Each individual activation utilizes the central and autonomic nervous systems to send direct signals that stimulate the entire body to awaken, revive, and re-energize core healing mechanisms initiating cellular level changes. After only a few treatments, ideal organ and system functioning, optimal health, and pain elimination are the natural result in
nearly every case.
Bowen Healing System is consistently effective in eliminating stress, tension and pain. It addresses a very long list of conditions and ailments ranging from tension to severe muscular and joint pain; Fibromyalgia, carpal tunnel syndrome, Plantar Fasciatis, Migraines, Chronic Fatigue, Fibromyalgia, acid reflux, depression, stress, asthma, TMJ, allergies, respiratory problems, PMS, and erectile
dysfunction are just a very few of the health concerns that Bowen directly addresses. It consistently addresses all kinds of pain and mild to severe health-related issues with a very high level of success…85-95%!!!
The benefits of Bowen are numerous, including elimination of tension and anxiety, improved breathing, restful sleep, calm children, increased energy, superior stamina, greatly improved mental clarity and focus, rapid recovery from surgery, rehabilitation from injury and quickly getting the body and mind out of shock.
People commonly resolve 50–60 percent of their long list of ailments within the first seven days after
just one treatment. With Bowen, the body will continue to heal and change for seven days after a treatment as though it received a treatment every day. Between treatments, the body will continue to peel off layers of signs, conditions, disorders, and dysfunctions until core issues are addressed. In
most cases, once a core issue is addressed, it clears itself from the body, and the results are almost immediate and long lasting.
In nearly 90 percent of all cases, people are restored back to optimal health within an initial set of only three to five treatments. Each treatment is generally spaced five to ten days apart, with seven days between treatments being optimal for most people. After the initial set of treatments, maintenance is performed on an as needed basis, similar to a tune-up for a car. Urgent, non-emergency care can be performed immediately after an injury or trauma to quickly initiate the healing processes and to get the body out of shock. Athletes who sustain an ankle sprain or neck, shoulder, or muscle strain, for example, can rapidly return to competition in as little as two to five minutes at 80–100 percent. Another case, an astha attack, can be stopped in as little as ten to twenty seconds using a very specific, yet simple, set of activations.
Bowen is very gentle in its approach. Anyone, ranging from newborn infants through aging adults, with any condition can receive treatment without any potential health risk or risk of harm or injury. Athletes use Bowen to provide a very rapid, all-natural, exceptional, and superior competitive edge.
A treatment can take as long as sixty minutes or so to complete or, in some cases, as little as ten minutes, depending on what the body needs and can optimally receive and use that day. Bowen directly influences and accelerates healing on much deeper levels, greatly improving overall health and
well-being as multiple layers of ill health and dysfunction are removed.
Bowen is very unique in its approach to the body and is clearly exceptional. One of the key elements to Bowen is that each successive treatment builds and compounds on the last one, making nearly every other physical treatment for the body obsolete. It is unlike any other bodywork or physical treatment method that you know. During a treatment, the practitioner performs just a few activations at precisely located points on the body and then walks away for a few minutes. The practitioner returns, activates a few more points, and then leaves again, continuing in this manner throughout the course of the treatment.
The waiting times placed in between a series of activations are an integral part of the treatment. They allow the body time to take in the signals that were given, while also allowing it time to respond and make needed adjustments or changes. This process of only slightly activating the body before leaving it
to respond and change also protects the body from over stimulation as over stimulation quickly causes the body to become defensive. The waiting time also gives the practitioner time to observe and identify any changes the body has made in direct response to the work that was performed. The responses, or, in some cases, a non-response, give the practitioner solid clues to the true current state of the body on deep levels, and they show the direction it is heading and also give subtle hints for the practitioner to follow. These hints communicate to the practitioner what the body wants or needs next. This unique
and proactive relationship between the response of the body and the practitioner has a direct correlation to the extraordinary, very predictable, and lasting results Bowen achieves.
Bowen is simple, straightforward, and deliberate. It works with the body and what it presently needs, causing the body to stimulate healing from the inside out, in the reverse order that issues or
conditions came. It also allows the body to heal what it knows is most important first as it aligns with and draws on its own optimal health and healing blueprint once again. The body does the work,
not the practitioner. Bowen just simply opens pathways that have been dormant. Once the pathways are opened, neural-chemical changes instantaneously radiate throughout the entire body at lightning speed, setting off numerous chains of events that directly and powerfully impact every system, organ, and muscle in the body to varying degrees. The results of the overall impact on the body produce monumental shifts that can actually be felt during a typical Bowen treatment.
Characteristically, many of these shifts are experienced as a form of heat or heating up, vibration, a slight tingling sensation, body shifting, and/or slight involuntary muscle movements as the body begins to open and communicate with itself again. People often report that they can actually feel their bodies calm down, rebalance, and let go as the stress, tension, and pain simply disappear. Many also report that their minds calm down, and mind chatter vanishes, allowing them to feel a deep sense of peaceful well-being and restfulness that has been long overdue.
When the body is at rest, it begins to actively participate in resetting its own healing mechanisms, causing a myriad of acute and chronic health issues simply to resolve themselves on their own, without the need for any other outside effort or interference. Health issues that are commonly resolved include those on physiological, mental, emotional, and energetic levels. Healing on these levels transforms the entire body from a dis-eased or ill-at-ease state to a near-effortless or at-ease state of functioning and balance.
The focus of the practitioner is to concentrate initially on addressing the body as a whole, getting it to relax, open, and quickly let go of whatever it can, and then individually tailor the remainder of the treatment for the needs of the individual. Each consecutive treatment is tailored on the day of
and during treatment to address very specific areas or conditions that are yet present in the body to achieve optimum results as soon as possible. As a treatment series progresses, it becomes more specific, and the length of treatment may shorten because the entire focus of the treatment will turn to more specific areas of the body that haven’t yet responded, with the sole purpose of focusing the body’s resources directly to a non-responsive area or two.
Bowen simply addresses the entire body by activating key receptors that remind the body to function at its most efficient and vibrant state at all times. If the body can heal, it will heal rapidly with Bowen.
Many physicians and healthcare professionals around the world who have seen or experienced the superior and consistent results that Bowen produces are convinced of its profound effectiveness in addressing a long list of difficult-to-treat pain and health-related issues.
Dr. Robert Jay Rowen, MD, has written that Bowen is “the gentlest, most effective pain therapy ever!”
