Sports injury is a field of remedial therapy that is becoming very aware of the Bowen Technique. Not only do sportsmen and women report fewer injuries when treated regularly but they also notice an increase in performance.

Elizabeth Bond, Bowen therapist in Devon and Somerset. Bowen Technique, Bowen Therapy and Bowen describe the light touch therapy devised by Tom Bowen in Australia. Bowen Therapy is holistic, treating the whole patient, not just symptoms and has been reported to be effective for conditions such as low back pain, sciatica, headache, migraine, asthma, shoulder pain, neck problems, tennis elbow, golfer's elbow, RSI and other musculo-skeletal conditions. Bowen Therapy can often have a relaxing effect which may help people suffering from tension or stress syndromes.
