Bowtech term is an abbreviation of the words “Bowen” and “Technique”. It is a holistic vibrational healing therapy which was invented by the Australian physiotherapist Tom Bowen on 1950, while he was trying to find a cure for his wife asthma disease. Tom Bowen used to apply his therapy to injured soldiers of 2nd World War and he generally achieved to relieve pain and treat their contusions. In 1974 the research that had been carried out by Health Ministry of Australia was the cause of Bowtech’s appreciation firstly in Australia and gradually all over the world.

Bowen Technique has a significant difference from the other holistic therapies. Bowtech activates self healing system that every human body is equipped. The therapist with his finger sends messages to body organs and stimulates immunological respond within next hours or days. Other less significant differences between Bowtech and other holistic treatments are:

The therapist touches and “pushes” the body very gently and softly and a result of this Bowtech can be applied even at bad contusions and wounds. The therapist can stimulate every organ of human body and that is why he can promote healing of various conditions, from myalgia to asthma crisis. Although, Bowen Technique has the minor intervention of all holistic therapies, it is the only holistic method which can relief pain instantly.

In order to cure a disease, 4-6 sessions are required, even though we must state that each instance has unique characteristics of tension and difficulty and consequently the therapist must provide the advisable treatment for each condition and patient. Keep in mind that there have been some cases that the patient was fully cured after only one session. If a condition needs more than one session, the patient must wait a week till the next session. This time period is necessary in order body to have the time to start and develop the self healing procedure. Tom Bowen claimed that one therapy session every 2 months can keep us healthy and promote wellbeing.

Bowtech stimulates all organism systems and parts of human body and can promote healing of various diseases. For example, it is beneficial to babies that suffer from collics, while it helps overweight adults who experience backaches. It is proved that Bowtech stimulates muscle, skeletal, respiratory, nervous, lymphatic, circulation, peptic and immune system. As a result, Bowtech is usually used to cure: neck syndrome, headache, migraine, backache, coxalgia, kyphosis, scoliosis, arthritis, myalgia, muscle injury, asthma, allergic rhinitis, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, gynaecological conditions, icterus and collics. Moreover, it can promote quality of life of patients’ who suffer from autoimmune diseases, like disseminated multiple sclerosis, lupus erythematosus and psoriasis type 1.

On the other hand, as we mentioned before, autoimmune conditions are some of the conditions that Bowtech can not totally cure. Additionally, Bowen Technique is ineffective for worn out persons who had many health diseases in the past and unreceptive persons. Bowtech cannot help patient with discontinued tissues (for example, bone fractures or muscle rupture) because the impulse cannot be transmitted to the respective organ or part of human body.
