Bowen Techniques for TCM Practitioners

Bowen techniques: In the past this simple yet powerful set of body work techniques has been taught to osteopaths, chiropractors and remedial masseurs. The techniques commonly employ a cross fibre flicking method using relatively light pressure. Not surprisingly, the locations of the applied techniques coincide with known acupuncture points. It is the sequence of the points used that gives the techniques their power to induce change in tissue tone resulting in reduced pain and improved function. These techniques are a valuable aid to those who use TCM and its variations to treat muscular skeletal conditions. Some of the techniques have a direct and intended effect on the function of the viscera.

Dr Ryan is currently teaching Bowen Techniques for TCM Practitioners in a 2 day Workshop format.
