It All Started with Tom Ambrose Bowen and His ''Gift from God"
Tom Ambrose Bowen
1916 - 1982
Developed by the late Mr. Tom Bowen in Geelong, Australia, the Bowen technique is a unique system of therapy that continues to revolutionize health care worldwide. Tom Ambrose Bowen was very interested in alleviating human suffering and began to notice that certain moves on the body had positive effects. Through a series of moves and pauses his patients could catalyze their own ability of repair.
Mr. Bowen developed the technique without any training in the health care field and claimed that the work was simply a gift from God.
In his clinic in Geelong, Australia, Mr. Bowen would perform approximately 13,000 treatments a year.
With the help of his secretary, Rene Horwood, and later Ossie and Elaine Rentsch, documentation and eventually the teaching of the Bowen Technique worldwide became possible. A dream cherished by Tom Bowen himself, and a promise kept by Ossie.
For more than fifty years, it has successfully treated thousands of people suffering from a large range of illnesses.
