Bowen Association of Australia Documentary on Tom Bowen

“In the middle of 2016, the Bowen Association of Australia was approached by a Bowen therapist who was frustrated with the lack of public knowledge and information about Bowen therapy, what it was and what it offered. She started thinking about how better to promote Bowen and has teamed up with her brother, a film maker in Victoria, to produce a documentary film about Tom Bowen and his gift to the world. The BAA is pleased to be partnering with Starmax Films to produce this story.

The BAA is the association for Bowtech Bowen practitioners, and we believe we need to help promote the benefits of Bowen therapy to the public. Our practitioners have worked hard to become Bowen therapists and we feel partnering in the creation of this documentary will help promote Bowen therapy and, therefore, our members.

Starmax Films began filming at the international conference in Cairns, interviewing some therapists and teachers over the three days. We are excited to announce that a trailer from those interviews is now available on the BAA YouTube channel. Please view the trailer, like it, share it, talk about it and use it in your avenues of promoting this wonderful therapy and technique. We will keep you posted on the documentary’s progress and alert you to any new videos we produce. Like the BAA page on Facebook to make sure you are kept in the loop of all that we are doing to help you help others”. Sue Marte, Vice President, BAA

Josh: A Traumatic Brain Injury Success Story

Josh is a success story.

This inspiring nine-minute documentary, Josh: a TBI Success Story is presented to us by Liz McNulty, a speech therapist and Bowenwork practitioner, who supported Josh’s recovery. (Liz studied with American Bowen Academy instructors, Mary Martorano, Nancee Rogers and Sean Wolf.) When Liz first met Josh, he was on a trach tube and a feeding tube, unable to walk, and fully dependent on others. In the words of Josh’s mother, “he wasn’t responding.” Spoiler alert: at 4:50 Josh tells us, “[Liz] is inspiring me […] she takes my pain away because she does Bowenwork on me.”
