These two hands
Experts concur that Bowen Therapy consistently has remarkable results because it works deeply to restore the communication network in the body.We learned that with advancementsin medicine and quantum physics that the body is far more complex than the outdated westernmechanical model. In particular, over the last ten years, there has been considerable interest in the fascia, the body’s soft tissue matrix. Previously discarded and misunderstood by the medicals, it is now well established that fascia is the largest sensory organ in the body. This soft tissue forms a complex web surrounding every cell, all organs, muscles, bones, veins, lymphatic, and nerves. This dynamic organ creates our ‘internal ocean of liquid crystal’ that protects hydrates, nourishes, and provides a means of communication. We could conclude that through the remarkable fascia the body works in ‘unity and maintains overall health’.
These findings have been pivotal for the Bowen Therapy community, as we are now able to comprehend how the Bowen Technique impacts the body directly through the fascia. Considering this, you could say that Mr. Tom Bowen was way ahead of his time, a ‘fascial specialist’. Perhaps the fact that he was not medically trained gave him the advantage to think outside the normal paradigm. Many have described him as obsessed and consistently researching, he would regularly collect carcasses from the local abattoirs. It is likely that he was studying the soft tissue matrix that we now know to be the foundation of his work!
