The Bowen Fascial Release Technique is a soft tissue therapy which is very gentle. It consists of a series of moves across muscles, ligaments, tendons and other soft tissue. The therapist uses their thumbs or fingers over areas of the body applying very gentle pressure allowing movement of the tissue over the fascia. The majority of the moves can be performed through light clothing such as t-shirt and shorts.

There is no strong manipulation or deep or prolonged pressure on the body. This is not a type of massage and no oils are used.
