Bowen Therapy

Bowen Therapy is a gentle form of body work that releases physical stress and tension from the body, allowing the body to reset and heal itself.

It produces lasting relief from pain and discomfort, stimulating energy flow and activating the body’s own resources for healing.

Bowen therapy was developed by the late Tom Bowen in Geelong, Australia. The work consists of a series of gentle, precise cross-fiber moves over a muscle, tendon or ligament.

It’s safe to use on anyone from the newborn to the aged apart from in a few instances. In most cases only 2 or 3 treatments are required.

Bowen is holistic so conditions other than those being treated are often helped as well.

The work is non- invasive and can be done through clothing when preferred.

I have been a Bowen Therapist for 23 years and have seen amazing results for problems like Sciatica, frozen shoulder, asthma and all sorts of acute and chronic conditions that haven’t responded to other treatments so is often a last resort for some people.

Hear From Di’s Happy Bowen Clients

I have suffered from periodic sciatica for some twenty years.

In May 2018 I was bed-ridden for a week, followed by a further week of shuffling around doing my best impression of Quasimodo. I ultimately recovered but when I was struck down again in September, with no improvement in sight after two weeks, I knew I had to try something new. The Universe led me to Diane Downward – and within an hour, the pain had eased considerably. By the following morning I was completely pain free and back to my usual self. I am a convert!

Should I suffer from sciatica again in the future, the moment I am able to climb up on the table, I will be knocking on Diane’s door. Thank you!!


I have used Di for the past year to help me overcome some physical and emotional issues with her Bowen therapy where no other health practitioner could.

She is so in tune with your body and is very knowledgeable on different parts of your body how they work and how they are connected with the mind. I walk out of her rooms every time feeling light and stress-free. I no longer see a GP for any muscular problems, I go straight to Di.

She has also helped my teenage son with muscular pain and released tension in his body. He too says he feels taller and lighter after seeing Di. To me, she is like an angel.


I was taken to Flinders by Ambulance with extreme pain in head/neck.

Spent 2 nights there with serious medication to no avail. My wife found Diane, a Bowen Therapist & as I was still in extreme pain & vomiting I went for a treatment.

After an hour of treatment I went home & actually slept. I needed no more medication, the first time in over a week.

I still see her periodically & highly recommend her services.
