What is Bowtech or Bowen Technique?

BowTech is the original  Bowen Technique. Bowen Technique doesn't just focus on a single issue it addresses the body as whole utilising the autonomic nervous system (ANS) to restore balance. The ANS controls over 80% of the body's functions and is vulnerable to outside stressors. Healing can only occur once the body has moved from 'fight, flight or freeze mode' to 'rest, relax and repair mode'. Bowen Technique is instrumental in creating that shift. Bowen technique is very powerful in activating the recovery process in a range of issues from trauma, sickness or surgery where recovery has stopped or plateaued.
