Grounded Healing

History of Bowen Therapy

The Bowen technique was developed in Australia by the late Tom Bowen. Tom Bowen was gifted and intuitive about the body and its ability to heal itself.

Tom studied the human body by attending medical school. Being very familiar with the body and how it works, he developed this technique on his own. He ran a very busy clinic in Geelong, Victoria treating over 13,000 patients per year.

Tom Bowen met Oswald Rentsch, a natural osteopath, in 1974. Oswald worked very close with Tom, learning all his technique’s and protocols. He documented all his work and promised to carry the legacy after he had passed. Oswald and his wife, Elaine continue to teach people all across the world today.
