Treatment and how might my animal benefit ? A Bowen treatment can vary from 20 minutes to an hour depending on presenting problems. There can be short rest periods between moves to cater for the animal’s temperament and this is considered in any treatment program.  Improvement often becomes evident in the first or second treatment, particularly with acute muscular-skeletal problems.   Depending on how chronic the condition is, more treatments may be needed or a maintenance therapy  program designed. Bowen therapy assists with a range of problems & can assist in a number of ways:   Muscular-skeletal problems including lameness created by muscle soreness, soft tissue injuries, hip problems, stifle joint problems (including patella subluxations), arthritis (some forms)   paralysis problems and muscle spasms respond well to Bowen. Improves overall joint flexibility and muscle integrity aiding in gait and mobility. Increasing lymph and blood circulation, aiding elimination of toxins, lactic acid and decreasing inflammation. This is very beneficial in assisting in injury recuperation and with immune diseases. Bowen has also been successful with animals that have poor eating habits, anxiety and stress problems, breathing problems and skin conditions.
Bowen Therapy is a system of manually applied myofascial stimulation across an animal’s body. It involves a series of planned moves either singularly or sequentially within strategically placed body locations including specific muscle, fascia, tendons, ligaments, acupoints and trigger points. The precise location of the Bowen moves correlate markedly with much of the latest research into Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) meridian systems, acu-points and myofascial trigger point theories. Animal Equilibrium encourages owners to discuss goals for treatment with your vet and/ any other animal healthcare provider and/or behavioural trainer. Animal Equilibrium works in a complementary manner with other providers and it is therefore important that all aspects of an animals treatment /care is known to ensure that a well informed complementary remedial or preventative wellness program can be designed.

Bowen Therapy and the Performance Animal : Bowen can be used to facilitate flexibility and mobility pre and post competition for performance animals. If canine/equine athletes have already experienced Bowen, “Mini” treatments or singular moves can be done the day before or on the morning of a trial to increase circulation and overall flexibility without compromising performance.  Bowen can be used remedially or as a preventative program with performance animals and Animal Equilibrium has successfully used Bowen Therapy in both contexts with canine & equiine athletes.
Bowen Therapy, originated in Australia in the 1950s by Tom Bowen (1916 – 1982) Tom Bowen’s technique evolved throughout his years of practice. In the interview for the Webb Report of 1975, an Australian Government survey on natural therapies, it revealed that he was treating some 13000 patients per year, such was his reputation. He also had great success on the application of his techniques with horses.  His techniques are now taught in Australia, USA, Europe and UK with professional accredited training worldwide.
