Ben Hamilton has had a lifetime of involvement in Martial Arts, commencing training at the age of five in 1980. In later years, Ben ventured into Kickboxing and Muay Thai, working his way into the professional fight circuit. His passion for health, fitness and training others lead to him completing his Fitness/Gym Instructor qualification in the late 90s. With a goal of creating a holistic health business, Ben then completed his Diploma of Remedial Massage.
This business dream was put on hold as Ben joined the Victoria Police Force. Ben graduated as Dux of the Police Academy, and eventually served in the Divisional response Unit. Ben was also a qualified Operational Safety and tactics Trainer (OSTT), training police in the use of firearms and defensive tactics. During a training course Ben ruptured his L5/S1 Disc and underwent surgery.
Due to injuries from martial arts training, competition fighting, and a severe back injury, I started receiving Bowen Therapy treatments, and after initial skepticism, I was sold on its simplicity and effectiveness.
Upon retiring from law enforcement, Ben began working as a Youth Justice Community Services Support Officer, helping mentor young people who had found themselves on the wrong side of the law.
During this time, Ben ventured into the world of Bowen Therapy, completing both the Certificate IV in Bowen Therapy 10846NAT and Diploma of Specialised Bowen Therapy 10847NAT.
In 2018, Ben founded Blaster Bowen Therapy, and has been self-employed ever since, running a successful home-based clinic in Lavington NSW.
Due to his sporting background, Ben has been fortunate to work with numerous athletes, including World Champion Boxers (Jeff Fenech, Sam Soliman, and Louisa Hawton), along with multiple world record holders in Powerlifting.
One of my passions is to help spread the effectiveness of Bowen Therapy into the sporting field, where many athletes are still of the ‘no pain – no gain’ belief.
