The human body has an incredible ability to heal, so if it not healing, it is stuck. Bowenwork through a series of gentle moves releases the restrictions that keep the body from accommodating to a better place. Once released the body finds its own way back to health. Bowenwork looks for the cause of the problems, which is not always in the same place where the problem occurs. Once the cause is addressed the problem does not return.
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 is now worldwide in over 40 countries. Bowenwork gained recognition from its remarkable results and its gentle holistic approach both on the client as well as the massage therapist.
Bowenwork resets the tension in certain fascia, muscles, tendons, joints and nerves, by using a specific targeted touch. These gentle stretch-and roll moves stimulate the proprioceptors, which send messages to the brain on how we hold ourselves in space. The brain then sends messages back down into the body to initiate an unwinding. This also stimulates the body’s innate healing intelligence to mobilize to take the liberated energy and use it where the body most requires it. Bowenwork promotes profound relaxation, promotes healing, decreases pain, increases range of motion, decreases stress, improves postural alignment.
