What is Bowen Therapy?

It is named after its creator Tom Bowen from Geelong and has been in existence since 1950.  Canine Bowen Therapy is a soft tissue (fascia/connective tissue) Therapy that encourages the body’s own innate healing power. A Bowen therapist works with the body's largest system known as fascia, this is the tissue that surrounds and is connected to all of the body's systems, there is superficial and deep fascia.  This is why Bowen is such an effective and amazing therapy. There is no pain or manipulation involved with a session rather a manoevre of the fascia both in the areas causing the presenting issue but also those connected.  It is an extremely relaxing therapy and feels like a gentle massage to your dog they get into a state of deep relaxation and often fall asleep this is when the body does most of its repairing and re-setting.
