Neural Touch™ is a gentle, strikingly effective system of bodywork, largely inspired and dedicated to the work of the late Tom Bowen of Australia. Other influences include the more subtle of osteopathic techniques, and the strategic finesse of the internal martial arts. Neural Touch™ is ideal for pain relief, musculoskeletal problems, organic and endocrine conditions. Neural Touch ™ is not massage, chiropractic, “energy work”, or acupressure. It uses simple moves, gentle pressure, and stretches on muscles, tendons, and joints. This stimulates the nervous system to reset tension levels locally, and throughout the body.

Training seminars in Neural Touch ™ are available to those with an ongoing, hands-on practice, including anatomy and physiology training. Talented amateur practitioners are occasionally admitted on a case-by-case basis. If you are practicing medicine, chiropractic, osteopathy, physical therapy, or massage therapy, consider a seminar. If you are out of massage school and need CEU hours, this training will take your work to exciting new levels. Neural Touch ™ will hurt no one, and will enhance any methods or procedures you already use. The techniques can be used alone or combined with other protocols. They can even be seamlessly integrated into an examination! No oil or nudity are required, and the work is so relaxing that most clients fall asleep one or more times during the session.

Bowen Books: Not ready to commit to classes? Gene’s Bowen Home Companion, Volumes I and II, are available for sale. These books represent a crystalization of an earlier, more formal version of Bowen’s work. The Companions have been read, used and enjoyed by thousands of practitioners in fifteen countries.

Gene Dobkin, in full-time practice, teaching, and writing about therapeutic bodywork for close to 30 years, is the founder of Neural Touch ™.  Beginning in 1992, Gene became the top U.S. Instructor for The Bowen Therapy Academy of Australia ® [Bowen Technique, or Bowenworks®], and later the International Institute of Applied Health Services ® [Neuro-Structural Integration Technique ®, or NST ®]. Though having similar roots to these techniques, Neural Touch ™ is a different approach to the protocols, practice and teaching of Tom Bowen’s original, groundbreaking work.

U.S. Bowen is an independent organization and is not affiliated with any other Institute or Organization. 

Neural Touch™ classes are marked by clarity, individual attention, innovative methods, and a good bit of humor. Post-seminar support is extensive.
