Back & neck pain

The Bowen Technique was pioneered by Thomas Ambrose Bowen of Geelong, Australia. 

He had a great interest in massage and body work and spent time observing football trainers and others involved with sports.  By the time he was in his early 40s, this gifted man had established a full time practice in remedial therapy using the technique he had developed.  

In 1973, when he was interviewed by a parliamentary committee looking into complimentary medicine he stated, under oath, that he had treated about 280 patients per week an incredible 13,000 patients a year, 88% of whom only required two or three treatments!  Mr Bowen was able to treat 2 or 3 patients in different rooms during the same time slot because of the short breaks which are part of the Bowen Technique Treatment.  Mr Bowen died in the early 1980s, age 66 but today there are a number of flourishing therapies based on his work.
