What is Bowen Therapy

Bowen is a natural therapy offering a non-invasive, holistic approach to pain relief and healing. Bowen Therapy recognises the underlying cause of many musculoskeletal, Neurological and other Health problems or pain can be found in the soft tissue or fascia. The facia is the connective fibrous tissues that run throughout the body and surround and protect the muscles.

This remarkable therapy uses gentle soft-tissue or fascial release techniques on specific spots on the body. Forceful manipulation is not used. Instead, Bowen therapy involves a light cross fibre manoeuvring of the muscle or tendon. This works to stimulate the body’s energy and activate it’s healing capacity. This gives the brain a message to heal a particular area and achieve balance and lasting relief.

The Benefits of Bowen Therapy

Bowen Therapy is able to treat a range of acute and chronic conditions and is particularly beneficial for those seeking assistance with mobility issues, physiology, pain relief, stress relief, and general wellbeing. The main benefit of Bowen Therapy, lies in the long term and permanent relief that can be experienced.

Injury Management

Because Bowen works with muscles, nerves, fascia and consequently bones, this bodywork can have a profound effect on a body that has been injured, both recently and historically. It can set the body’s own healing ability to begin when Bowen is administered. On occasion pain can immediately reduce or disappear or it can have the same effect over time. Bowen can calm the body’s “fight and flight” response to injury so healing can begin to take place.

Bowen Therapy in Practice

Non-invasive techniques to assist in the healing process of your body.

Bowen Therapy for Babies  Relieving Muscle Pain  Back Pain Relief    



After being diagnosed with a herniated disk by my doctor and trying different treatments over many years to relieve the pain and headaches I was getting ( without much success).

I decided to ring Tui at Bowtech after being given her number by a client at work who told me “she’ll fix you”.  

On my first visit I couldn’t drive myself there and couldn’t work because of the pain I was suffering.  Tui told me I was very dehydrated and explained the importance of drinking plenty of water to help the body to heal. She then gently used different techniques to help release my muscles.  I must admit when I left I was very sceptical that it would work.  

Normally I would have been off work for 3-6 weeks until the pain had subsided enough but after the second day of seeing Tui  I was able to move around, by day 4 I was back at work driving the truck again and after a week I had stopped taking any pain relief.  After my 4th session with Tui it was decided that I would continue on a maintenance programme of going once every 2-3 months. I can’t recommend Tui and Bowen Therapy enough as I am still pain free.

Back Pain

My specialist that I would need surgery to stop the pain associated with my shoulder and rotating cuff that was caused by a hockey injury I had when I was at school.
After trying to correct it for many years by going to physiotherapy the only way I could get relief from the pain was by taking Nurofen. Looking for an alternative to surgery I read about Bowen Therapy on the internet managed to find Tui as she was local and could see me on a Saturday.

I noticed that after my first session, within a week I was able to sleep with no pain. Over the next few sessions Tui also helped me with my posture, as I am quite tall and tended to roll my shoulders forward, which in turn has helped with the back pain and headaches I was also having.

What impressed me the most was the fact that in every movement Tui applied there was never any pain associated with it and the exercises I was given were simple and effective. Tui’s friendly and understanding nature made it very easy for me to relax and listen to the advice she gave to me. I highly recommend Tui and Bowen Therapy to live a pain free life.

Sports Injury

Seeing an amazing improvement in a family member’s pain after treatments with Tui at Bowtech I decided to give it a go.

After suffering from lower back pain off and on for the last 20 year and sick of taking pills to relieve the pain I visited Tui to see what could be done to help me.  
I was not only impressed by the gentleness of the movements to the muscles and also by how relaxing it was but also by the way I was treated as a person by Tui and not just another client.  Tui took an interet in my life and what was happening in it and was able to adjust each session to accommodate what was causing any stress to my muscles.  
Tui is a very kind and non-judgemental person with a caring soul and I highly recommend her if you are wanting to try Bowen Therapy
