Bowen therapy, also known as the Bowen technique or Bowen work, is a form of bodywork that aims to stimulate the body's natural healing mechanisms through gentle and specific movements. People have reported the following potential benefits: 

1. Pain relief: Many individuals seek Bowen therapy for pain management. It is believed that the technique may help reduce pain associated with various conditions, including musculoskeletal issues, chronic pain, and sports injuries. 
2. Relaxation and stress reduction: Bowen therapy involves gentle, rolling movements over specific points on the body. This can induce a state of deep relaxation and help alleviate stress and tension. 
3. Improved mobility and flexibility: By targeting specific muscle groups and fascia, Bowen therapy may help improve range of motion, flexibility, and overall mobility. This can be beneficial for individuals with stiffness or reduced mobility due to injury, surgery, or other conditions. 
4. Balancing the autonomic nervous system: Bowen therapy is thought to influence the autonomic nervous system, which controls involuntary bodily functions. By promoting balance within this system, it may help improve overall well-being and enhance the body's ability to self-regulate. 
5. Enhancing body awareness: Bowen therapy encourages individuals to become more attuned to their bodies and notice any subtle changes or sensations. This heightened body awareness can potentially help individuals identify and address areas of tension or discomfort. 
6. Complementary support for various conditions: Some individuals incorporate Bowen therapy as a complementary approach to support their overall well-being and manage symptoms associated with conditions such as fibromyalgia, migraines, asthma, and digestive issues. 
It's worth mentioning that the experiences and effectiveness of Bowen therapy can vary from person to person.
