Animal Therapy

Bowen Therapy is also very effective for horses, dogs and other small animals too!

Originally developed as a treatment for humans, ongoing research and development of the technique has allowed trained practitioners to offer effective Bowen treatment to both small and large companion animals such as horses, dogs and cats.

As with Bowen Therapy for humans, the treatment for animals involves the same soft tissue remedial technique involving ‘light-touch’ moves of fingers or thumbs over muscle, ligament, tendon and/or fascia at specific points of the animal's body. The treatment is both gentle and subtle, with no hard or prolonged pressure. It offers the animal a non-invasive and effective hands-on technique that aims to promote healing, pain-relief and body/energy rebalancing.

Animal Bowen Therapy aims to promote and support the animal's own powers of self-healing and can assist with problems in the following areas:

  • - Acute injury (eg. sprains and strains)
  • - Chronic conditions and degenerative disease to help improve quality of life
  • - Psychological stress - relaxation of tension caused by earlier stress and trauma
  • - Pre– and post-operative surgery to assist with faster recovery times
  • - Fear-based anxiety
