Relax. Rebalance. Restore
Bowenwork® is a system of touch that initiates a series of responses through stimulation of the nervous, musculoskeletal, fascial and energetic systems of the human body.

  • Bowenwork addresses the body as a whole. The body's integrated response to Bowenwork improves circulation and lymphatic drainage and enhances the assimilation of nutrients and the elimination of toxins.
  • Bowenwork stimulates the body's autonomic nervous system to rebalance. Once this occurs, the body can initiate a healing response on structural and energetic levels.
  • Bowenwork is gentle on the body, effective and appropriate for anyone to receive.

What to expect in a session
  • You will be asked to wear lightweight loose fitting clothing that your practitioner can work through.
  • Your practitioner will take a complete health history and ask about the reason for your visit.
  • When you receive the work, you will rest on a bodywork table or in a chair, whichever position is more comfortable for you. You can expect to be on the table or in the chair for 20-60 minutes.
  • When performing the "Bowenwork moves" your practitioner will place fingers or thumbs on precise points and apply a gentle rolling pressure to the underlying tissue.
  • After each series of moves, your practitioner will assure your comfort and leave the room to allow your body time to begin its response to, and integration of, the changes.

What to expect afterward
Some changes may be noticeable right away:
  • Reduced pain
  • Greater range of motion and ease of movement
  • A sense of relaxation and well being
Over the next several days, your body will continue the process begun during your session. If your Bowenwork practitioner assigns you "homework" of gentle Bowenwork exercises, do them daily beginning the day after your session; they are an essential part of your care and will improve your results.

How many sessions are needed
  • Clients with acute sports, work-related, or overuse injuries often experience partial or full recovery within the first few sessions.
  • Clients with more complex injuries will usually experience continued improvement with additional sessions.
  • Clients with neurological and some other chronic conditions may require ongoing periodic maintenance.
