Bowen therapy (ibowen.ca; bowtech.com; bowenworkregistry.ca) is a gentle hands-on technique developed by Tom Bowen in Australia, and is practiced in over 30 countries worldwide. Bowen therapy involves gentle moves over the muscle and soft tissues to stimulate healing. Bowen therapy is completely safe and can be used on everyone, from newborns to elderly individuals.
Some Conditions treated by Bowen Therapy
- Frozen shoulder
- Hip and Knee pain
- Low back pain
- Carpal tunnel
Both Dr Caralei Peters ND and Dr Jiselle Griffith ND provide Bowen therapy after the initial naturopathic consultation, unless you are referred by another naturopathic doctor. Three to five sessions are often all that are required to stimulate healing, and the benefits often last unless there is a subsequent injury. Ask your naturopathic doctor if Bowen is right for you.
