At the University Pain Clinic & Wellness Centre, we specialize in a natural therapy for treating pain and other ailments called the Bowen Technique. Bowen is a gentle, non-invasive, yet highly effective treatment that is safe for everyone.
WHAT IS BOWEN THERAPY?
BOWEN THERAPY CAN HELP WITH:
The bowen technique, or bowen therapy, is a gentle form of physical therapy that acts upon the fascia and nervous system to provide relief from musculoskeletal and neurological pain.
It is helpful in alleviating back pain, sciatica, arthritis, migraines, fibromyalgia, frozen shoulder and more.
Bowen therapy is so effective that in some circumstances only a few treatments may be required for acute pain.
For acute conditions, once the pain has subsided, ongoing treatments are typically not required unless re-injury occurs.
A bowen treatment involves a series of short, gentle physical therapy moves applied along the spine and at very specific points on the body. Each set of moves is interspersed with crucial pauses to allow the body time to respond to the treatment. The bowen moves generate neurological impulses which trigger the brain and nervous system to relax muscles, tendons and ligaments, releasing pinched nerves, tension and stress. These neurological impulses continue to work for approximately one week after receiving the treatment.
Bowen therapy is completely non-invasive. No needles, drugs, nor machines are required. It is safe for everyone from newborns to the elderly including expectant mothers.
Bowen therapy is a very distinct physical therapy that differs from other forms of therapy like massage, chiropractic, acupuncture or physiotherapy. There is no manipulation of the bones or kneading of muscle tissue. Treatments can be effective even when other therapies have not resulted in lasting relief. Safe even for clients with osteoporosis.

View the research on bowenwork therapy to see how bowen can gently alleviate pain and numerous other ailments without any side effects.
As bowen therapy corrects imbalances in the body, joints regain proper alignment, pinched nerves are released, the muscles and fascia relax, lymphatic drainage is triggered and the body detoxifies.
In addition to pain relief, bowenwork therapy improves overall health by improving:
- range of motion/flexibility
- energy levels
- stress and anxiety levels
A bowen treatment, whether to address a specific problem or maintain a healthy body, achieves successful outcomes in a wide range of acute and chronic conditions.
The positive effects of bowen therapy extend beyond the actual areas being treated. For example, a treatment for lower back pain might also improve circulation and digestion. This is because Bowen work therapy effects positive change in the entire body on both a structural and a physiological level.....a result now known as:
