Bowen therapy (or Bowen technique)

Someone asked me to explain what is Bowmen Therapy?

I answered the person as follows:
The Bowen therapy (or Bowen technique) is an alternative type or physical manipulation named after Australian Thomas Ambrose Bowen (Tom Bowen). The Bowen therapy is a distinctive move applied at very precise points on the body. It involves the movement of soft tissue in specific way that stimulates the body’s natural responses to bring about self-healing both for medical conditions and physical. The therapy enhances cellular function via gentle manipulation of soft tissue. The pressure applied to muscle tissue during a Bowen move distorts the muscle fibres and interrupts the resting membrane potential within muscle cells.https://www.evidence.nhs.uk/search?q=bowen+technique
