the main goal of the technique is to stimulate the body to engage its own self healing mechanism it can be used effectively to reduce rehabilitation time after any illness, surgery or injury regardless of how old or recent they may be.


The Bowen Technique does not seek to treat specific condition or disease but rather to gently stimulate the body to heal itself.

The following list of diagnosed conditions comes from claims of patients worldwide that found relief from such conditions:

Musculo skeletal conditions of the spine and limbs: acute or chronic, post traumatic or post surgery or from a more arthritic origin (lumbar, thoracic, cervical pain and related muscle spasms and loss of mobility).
Sports injuries: ankles, shin splints, runner knees, adductors and hamstrings strain, rotator cuff injuries, tennis elbows....
Pelvic imbalances: tilt, leg length, hip pain and imbalance, inguinal and groin pain.
Frozen shoulder: capsulitis, rotator cuff, arthritis.
Whiplash from car accidents: receiving Bowen treatment immediately following a whiplash will greatly speed up recovery.
Sacro iliac pain and imbalances: post traumatic or related to pregnancy.
Coccyx pain: from trauma or after giving birth.
Migraine/headaches from stress and tension, structural and postural imbalance or digestive origin.
Hamstrings: tension, stiffness and strain.
Pregnancy: before (to help the body go through all the changes associated with pregnancy and help prepare for labor), during labor (to facilitate labor) and after birth for the mother (quicker recovery) and the baby (crankiness, colic, projectile vomiting...)

Scoliosis and kyphosis pain.
Neurological conditions: Bell's palsy, cerebral palsy, polio, stroke, muscular dystrophy, Parkinson, torticolis, multiple sclerosis...... these conditions over repeated series of sessions will respond to varying degrees depending on severity. Often patients have show gradual improvement of their condition and of their quality of life.
Heart conditions: chest pain, angina...
Detox from drugs: I have seen patient's detoxifying even after years of not using any drug.

Note: Often patients come to the Bowen Technique after having tried many other modalities to no avail. If a patient has not responded to other forms of therapy, it is always worth giving the Bowen Technique a try as it has shown to trigger in many sometimes surprising and unexpected recovery when nothing else had worked. A  young man in France in his early twenties who was born with the right half of his body paralyzed and spastic was able to recover full use of his right arm and write with his right hand after receiving  10 Bowen sessions !

Animals respond very well to the Bowen Technique from cats to horses and cattle, so much for the placebo effect !
