Bowen Therapy with Chris Dallinger B.App.Sci. (Human Movement) Dip of Prof. (Bowen Therapy), BAA Member, Owner/Proprietor of Island Healing
My purpose with Bowen Therapy is about giving people a service which helps them be the best they can be. No one likes living with conditions which can have a negative impact on the way they live. Bowen Therapy has taught me how to help people free themselves of living with such conditions. From my own personal experience to the many people who I have witnessed. I continue to be humbled by this technique and until I find a more effective treatment, I will continue to use it.
Bowen Therapy is an amazing soft tissue technique set to revolutionize the health care

Bowen Therapy was developed over a 30 year period from the 1950's through to the 1980's by the brilliant Mr. Tom Bowen of Geelong, Victoria, Australia. Tom Bowen became a much sought after therapist, regularly treating over 13,000 clients a year, sometimes having people lined up until 3am!
Tom Bowen developed his technique through a keen eye and an amazing ability to read muscle tension. He was regularly seen at football clubs and he worked with Olypmic games soft-tissue therapists who he gained many ideas through. Above all, he simply described his ability as a "gift".
Bowen Therapy was first taught in Perth in 1986. It is now practised in 40 countries all over the world and growing rapidly.
To explain how Bowen works, first of all we need to know how conditions develop within the body. A condition can be anything from lower back pain and sciatica to irritable bowel syndrome and migraines.
Every part of your body is regulated by nerves that come from the brain and travel through the spinal cord and then branch out to control and regulate muscles, tendons, ligaments and organs.
Nerves are sensitive to the structures surrounding them.
When nerves are affected by a misalignment in structure (for example, pressure from a tight muscle), the corresponding part of the body controlled by those nerves is also affected.
The result? A condition develops. This can happen acutely, through sudden injury, or chronically, a build-up over time. From this understanding it is clear that "structure governs function".
This is where Bowen Therapy comes in. Bowen initiates a response in the body to realign and re-balance muscle tension thereby restoring structure. Once structure is restored then function improves. This process may be instant (directly during or after a treatment) or may take up to 10 days to occur. Depending on the duration of the condition, several weeks may be needed. 80% of conditions are relieved in only two or three treatments.
A Bowen move first slides the skin in one direction and then challenges and rolls over the tissue in the other.
A Bowen move can be likened to a guitarist strumming the guitar string. Just as the guitarist strums the string to produce a certain result, so does the practitioner when practicing bowen.
When a move is performed over a muscle, tendon, ligament or nerve, that tissue is stimulated to self adjust and the body begins making the necessary changes of realignment and re-balancing.
What happens when a guitar is out of tune because the tension isn’t adjusted correctly? It doesn’t function properly. Similar to the body when muscle tension is out of balance, the body doesn’t function as well as it could be. The resulting dysfunction can range from subtle effects which can go by unnoticed, to major problems which can have a truly negative impact on life.
I started playing football again last year after about 5 years off. It was going great until about 5 weeks in when I started developing shin-splints. These can be quite painful, and were starting to really effect me. I went down and spoke to Chris about them, and after the first treatment I noticed a massive difference on game day.
