Bowenwork is a gentle non-invasive soft tissue
relaxation technique. Bowenwork stimulates the
innate intelligence of the body to reconnect,
rebalance and release tension so the body can
begin to heal itself.
Bowenwork is a unique method of working on specific
points on the body by making moves over the skin,
fascia, muscles, tendons and ligaments that result
in a rapid release of tension, postural realignment
and quite often pain relief.
HOW DOES BOWEN WORK?
By lightly contacting the skin, taking the slack
by stretching the skin and fascia, this stimulates
proprieoreceptors, which are highly specialized
sensory receptors on nerve endings,
found in muscles, tendons, joints, skin, fascia
ligaments and the inner ear.
During the "challenge" and the "rolling" part of the
Bowen moves, impulses are sent to the spinal cord
and brain to break up the pain pattern being held in
the body and stimulate the body to heal itself.
BRING THE BODY BACK TO ITS
ORIGINAL BLUEPRINT OF HEALING
Some Bowen moves produce referred reaction that
affects the internal organs, nerves,
lymphatic and detoxification.
THE HEALING OCCURS AT ALL LEVELS

the moves. The body continues to respond for several
days afterwards unless interrupted by injury or strong
