Bowenwork® is a gentle form of bodywork where very subtle but purposeful application of a ‘Bowen move’ performed over muscles and connective tissue send messages deep into the body, retrieving memory of a preferred, relaxed and balanced state of well-being. The impulse created by the move stimulates a response that reverberates throughout the fascial network affecting nerves, lymphatics, organ function, muscles and joints. Bowenwork® does not use forceful manipulation and can be used on anyone regardless of their health status including the very frail, elderly, newborns and trained athletes with the ability to improve function in a gentle but profound way.

Sets of moves are applied to the body followed by a pause of several minutes where the practitioner leaves the room to allow the integration of the input by the nervous system. These pauses continue throughout the session while the clients lies comfortably on a massage table. Work can also be done seated for these unable to lay down due to pain levels, pregnancy or other health conditions.

At each return visit, the response to the prior session is assessed and additional procedures are deemed appropriate based on their current symptoms and physical assessment. Sessions are generally scheduled 5-10 days apart to give the body sufficient time to integrate and process the input.

Bowenwork is suitable for all ages including pregnant women, infants, athletes, seniors, or for clients with conditions requiring a light touch (Parkinson’s, arthritis, fibromyalgia, etc). These small, gentle moves are also effective on deep tissue problems addressing both acute and chronic conditions.

Due to the holistic approach of this therapy, clients often feel improvements in areas beyond the specific area of concern. For instance, they often notice improved sleep, reduced stress, improved digestion and general health.
