About Bowen Therapy

BowenTom Bowen was born in Australia on April 18, 1916. In the 1950's Tom began his practice in Geelong, Victoria, treating workmates and others that had heard of his reputation in the front room of a friend's home in the evenings after work. Word of his healing hands spread throughout the region and soon he could not accommodate the number of people wanting his treatment in this part-time manner so he opened a full time practice. With his amazing skills of assessment, he was able to alleviate many people's problems with very few, relatively gentle, soft tissue manipulations.

Bowen Therapy’s gentle moves promote healing on physical, chemical, emotional, mental and energetic levels. People of all ages and state of health respond to Bowenwork according to what their bodies need. Bowenwork is extremely effective in helping with a variety of acute and chronic ailments, including back pain, sciatica, neck and shoulder pain, fibromyalgia and other conditions that often do not respond to more conventional approaches.

What to expect from a Bowen Session...

Bowen is such a gentle and relaxing therapy that often clients fall asleep during a session. The procedure consists of precise, gentle moves on specific tendons or muscles signalling the brain and body to begin or continue it’s own healing. Resting quietly between sets of movements, gives your system time to process and incorporate the new information. A bit like ‘reprogramming your body’. Deep relaxation and subtle sensations may occur when the body responds to the Bowen procedures, realigning, retensioning, re-starting your own inate healing system as you release energy blockages.

Some changes may be immediate and you will notice changes over the following days or weeks until your next Bowen Therapy session. Once your body is aligned and holding the new and improved way of being, a monthly maintenance is reccomended as a way to keep your body in perfect alignment from month to month thus not allowing your body to become misaligned and therefore painful from top to toe.

Bowen Therapy is a PREVENTITIVE THERAPY...Don’t wait until your body breaks down, maintain it now, just like we do our cars... each month. Imagine if your car had a wheel out of alignment. It would clunk along the road, well, that’s what your body is like when you have aches and pains, it is out of alignment, often one hip is higher than the other and the pelvis also rotates so that one hip is forward and the other back, this imbalance/rotation affects the whole body as the pelvis is the ‘mainstay’ of the body. If it is out of balance, all muscles, ligaments and tendons are at the wrong tension, pulling the skeleton and organs out of place. This totally disrupts the whole running of the body on the outside and the inside.

Bowen therapy works directly on the nervous system, lymphatics, blood pressure, heart rate, hormones, chemistry, organs, all systems, realigning and re-tensioning.

An amazing ‘State-of-the-art’ body therapy.


After suffering with pain in many areas of my body, but persevering with Chiropractors, Physiotherapists & Remedial Therapists, I eventually followed my husband’s lead who had been seeing Sue on recommendation of a good friend and both had amazing results. I don’t know why I didn’t go sooner, as I had been putting up with my pain for 2 years. After just a short time I started realizing that little things had stopped hurting and had just disappeared and were no longer causing me pain.

Slowly but surely my body has started healing itself with the help of Sue & her Bowen Therapy. The best thing of all is the fact that when I get out of bed in the morning, my feet don’t feel like they are broken anymore, my knee has stopped collapsing when I stand up and my Tennis & Golf elbows have gone and I can actually feel my arms getting stronger as I start using them again.
Thanks Sue for giving me back my health!
Forever Greatful,
Annette H – Boonah (foot pain, tennis & golf elbow, knee pain)
