Bowenwork® is a gentle yet effective soft tissue release technique that balances tension patterns in the body, resulting in a state of deep relaxation and facilitating the body in healing itself. Bowenwork is based on the principle that the body has an innate blueprint for health and, when in a state of balance, these powerful self-regulating mechanisms can be accessed. The technique consists of a series of precise, cross fiber “moves” on specific locations in the body.
A key element in Bowenwork is the prescribed wait periods between the sets of moves. These wait times give the nervous system a chance to process the sensory information and make adjustments bringing correction to abnormal postural holding patterns and release the fascial restrictions. By resetting the nervous system, Bowenwork helps to unwind the dysfunctional patterns brought on by prolonged stress, injuries, trauma, illness, and surgeries. Most clients are surprised at how a gentle move can have such a profound response.
