Soft Tissue Therapy
Bowenwork is a system of stimulating touch that uses tiny moves in specific locations on the body, interspersed with periods of rest. These small moves stimulate nerve endings that overlie both muscle and acupoints, creating a series of responses in the body. During the rest period, the body responds to this stimulation by sending signals up the nervous system to the brain and back again. The effect is the muscle resets the tension and the blockages to the free flow of energy are removed. Therefore relieving pain, tightness, and restriction, while balancing the whole body physically, emotionally, chemically, mentally, and energetically.
Bowenwork is complementary healthcare that is gentle on the body, effective and appropriate for anyone to receive. It is based on the principle that our bodies can be self-healing to the extent it is able to with the right stimulus.
Conditions that respond well include:
- Musculoskeletal/Postural realignment
- Chronic Fatigue/Fibromyalgia
- Stress Reduction/Sleep Disturbances
The power of Bowenwork is not just what happens during your session:
it's what continues to happen in the days to follow.
Unlike other methods, Bowenwork is performed over light clothing and most moves can be performed lying down, sitting or standing. Each session is unique to the individual and the response is different based on the needs of the individual and their body's ability to heal. The work evokes a deep relaxation and a profound release of stress that shifts the body toward wellness. This resetting continues for days after the session.
