Bowen on Wilderness

Welcome to your Bowen on Wilderness Clinic
Bowen Therapy Margaret River.

Here we we specialise in Bowtech, the globally recognised healing modality utilising the original Bowen method that was developed by Tom Bowen. Bowtech is a gentle, deeply relaxing yet dynamic form of bodywork which stimulates the body into a healing response or into  ‘rest and repair” mode via the autonomic nervous system.

About Bowen

Bowen Therapy

Bowen Therapy is extremely effective and gentle form of body work and is considered appropriate for anyone. 

Bowen Therapy can assist with recovery from a diverse array of conditions including sciatica, back pain, asthma, anxiety, digestive trouble, frozen shoulder, tennis elbow, migraines, fibromyalgia and many, many others.

Bowen can assist with healing after traumatic injury and also chronic illness. 

Bowen Therapy can offer relief from pain. 

Other benefits may include improved health, and improved flexibility and range of motion.

Bowen can assist with improvement in sport performance, promoting focus, relaxation and emotional and mental well-being.

Surfing and swimming are such great things to have in your life but can sometimes be a contributing factor in conditions producing back pain, frozen shoulder and tennis elbow. These are just a few injuries that respond very positively to Bowen Therapy sessions.


How It Works

Bowen Therapy works through the autonomic nervous system –

Vagus nerve activation

It activates the parasympathetic nervous system bringing the body into a state of healing or “rest and recovery”
The vagus nerve has the important job of ending your body’s fight-or-flight response once a stress has passed.
That’s why vagus nerve stimulation is so effective for mood regulation and as a potential treatment for depression.
Vagus nerve activation can also relieve migraines and reduce inflammation.

About Bec

Bec Sheedy-Ryan

is a qualified Bowen Therapy practitioner with a Certificate lV in Bowen Therapy and she is a member of the BAA (Bowen Association of Australia).

Bec became very interested in Bowen Therapy when she noted for herself the vast array of people that utilised Bowen Therapy as a reliable and effective form of natural pain relief that promoted deep relaxation, and increased mobility.

Since studying Bowen Therapy and seeing firsthand its profound effect on many different ailments including ongoing relief from chronic sciatica she is very happy to be able to share this natural form of bodywork with others so they can potentially live a more comfortable and balanced life.

What to expect

 Upon arrival you will be greeted and asked to fill out some paperwork regarding your personal details, a brief history and the reason for your visit.
Then it is time to lie on the massage table (Bowen can also be done seated or standing as necessary) and your therapist will begin her treatment applying gentle Bowen moves as required. 

During the session there are pauses or ‘breaks’ between sets of moves where the therapist will leave your body alone allowing you to relax and allowing your body to integrate what work has just been done. 

These breaks are approximately 2 minutes in duration.

Sessions may last up to an hour depending on the problem and the client’s response.  The length of the session does not relate to the efficacy of the Bowen Technique. 

Less is more.

At the end of the session when you sit up there may be a few further tests and some work on your neck and shoulders if necessary.
Post session we advise all clients to:

Walk regularly

Drink plenty of water

Wait for a week before any further Bowen or other body work
