Ossie Rentsch
Oswald Rentsch was originally a farmer in Australia. Seeking to help his wife, Elaine, cope with injuries she sustained as a child, he studied complementary and alternative therapies: massage, osteopathy, homeopathic ionisation, and nutrition. During these studies, they met Tom Bowen, whose treatment changed Elaine's life. As a result of that meeting, Bowen invited the two to study with him and document his work. Together, The Rentsches established the Bowen Therapy Academy of Australia and have been teaching the Bowen Technique together since 1986. Learn more at
