The original Bowen Technique is extremely gentle and is considered appropriate for anyone from pregnant women to newborn babies, the frail and the elderly. It can assist recovery from many conditions - from traumatic injury to chronic illness, depending upon each individuals capacity to heal.

Treatment can be done through light clothing, as no oils are used. Treatment sessions can last from 40 to 60 minutes.

Where did the Bowen Technique originate?

Mr Tom Bowen developed this comprehensive therapy in the 1950’s in Geelong Victoria Australia. Oswald Rentsch studied and documented Tom Bowen’s work and founded the Bowen Therapy Academy of Australia which is dedicated to preserving the technique and ensuring it is taught in its original form. Bowen Therapy Accredited Bowtech practitioners are registered with Bowen Associations affiliated with the Bowen Therapy Academy of Australia. A strict code of professional ethics and continuing education applies to all accredited practitioners.

I’m a small business owner, and had some issues with carpal tunnel and a sore neck. Steve at the Nambour Bowen Clinic did more in one treatment than anyone else had managed to do. My carpal tunnel and neck is totally under control, and I only need to see Steve once every few months to stay on top of it.

How Does Bowen Therapy Work?

Bowen Therapy is a gentle form of body work in which very subtle moves are performed over the muscles and connective tissue sending messages deep into the body, retrieving cellular memory of a preferred, relaxed, balanced way of well-being. Results can be remarkable, even from the first treatment, often only a few treatments are needed to correct the presenting problem.

Bowen Therapy can be considered for the symptoms of:

  • Stress Relief
  • Sports Injuries
  • Body Balancing
  • Joint Discomfort
  • Maintaining Health
  • Musculoskeletal Problems
  • Bronchial Symptoms

Bowen Therapy can also be a fast and effective treatment for many other symptoms.

Several Months after lower back surgery I was still in terrible pain, with little movement in my back and right leg. I was introduced to Steve Betts and he explained how Bowen Therapy was discovered and how it works. As strange as Bowen Therapy seemed halfway through the treatment, by the end of that first night I felt an improvement with less pain and more free movement. Further treatments had me returning to a normal lifestyle. I have since referred family members and friends to Steve, all with good results, now, either they’re all dreaming it, or Bowen Therapy actually works!

Meet Steve Betts

Accredited Bowen Health Care Professional

Steve Betts is the principal of the Nambour Bowen Clinic. He is married with 3 children and has lived on the Sunshine Coast since 1978. Steve became involved in Bowen Therapy after receiving Bowen treatment for migraine and back pain whilst visiting Maryborough. The results were instant for Steve, and not long after he brought his wife Leanne along.

Leanne had similar results and this prompted Steve to investigate Bowen Therapy further. On his return to the Sunshine Coast he couldn’t find any Bowen practitioners so he attended a Bowtech course in Sydney in 1993. Steve started practicing the original Bowen Therapy on family and friends on the Sunshine Coast in 1994.

Steve maintains his professional education through regular attendance at B.T.A.A. courses and his own studies. He has completed a Diploma, Cert IV, and Advanced in Bowen Therapy, Blue cardholder and holds a Senior First Aid certificate. The Nambour Bowen Clinic was opened in response to Steve’s success in helping people through Bowen Therapy. The Bowen clinic is air-conditioned, fully equipped and provides EFTPOS and free off street parking.
