Bowenwork is a connective tissue therapy influencing all the systems of the body through the autonomic nervous system. The human body has an incredible ability to heal. If it is not healing, it is stuck. Bowenwork through a series of gentle moves performed over muscles, fascia and connective tissue releases the restrictions that keep the body from transitioning to a better place. Once released the body finds its own way back to health. Bowenwork looks for the cause of the problem, which is not always in the same place where the problem occurs. Once the cause is addressed the problem does not return. This approach reduces pain, resets dysfunctional tissue-tension patterns in the fascia, and accelerates the body’s healing capacity. Bowenwork enjoys success in recovery from many conditions: back/neck pain, fibromyalgia, arthritis, sports injuries, anxiety, respiratory and abdominal issues, cancer,Parkinson, multiple sclerosis, ADD/ADHD, TMJ problems. It is safe and appropriate for newborns to elderly, from elite athletes to people with chronic conditions.
Bowenwork is a relatively new concept in therapeutic manual therapy, however it has been practiced in Australia, where it originated, since the 1950’s. Developed by Tom Bowen, it has worldwide recognition in over 40 countries. Due to the remarkable results and its gentle holistic approach both on the client and the massage therapist, Bowenwork continues to gain global recognition.
