Bowen therapy, is a form of bodywork.
It involves gently stretching the fascia — the soft tissue that covers all your muscles and organs. It is a way to promote pain relief and accelerate healing by using precise and gentle, rolling hand movements. These motions focus on the muscles, tendons, and ligaments, along with the fascia and skin around them. The idea is to reduce pain by stimulating the nervous system.
The technique was created by Thomas Ambrose Bowen (1916–1982) in Australia. It is said to inhibit the sympathetic nervous system (your fight-or-flight response) and activate the parasympathetic nervous system (your rest-and-digest response).
