WHAT IS BOWENWORK
Bowenwork is hands-on healthcare. It consists of sequences of rolling movements of the practitioner’s thumbs or fingers over precisely located sites on the body followed by waiting periods. These movements serve to signal the body to remember how to heal a variety of health issues.
Bowenwork helps the body remember how to heal. The specific objectives may vary, but there is always focus on relaxation, reduction of the “fight or flight response”, and engagement of the body’s perfect pattern memory for the area that is in pain, contracted or otherwise out of healthy balance.
Bowenwork provides gentle and profoundly effective signals to the brain for healing and recovery through the stimulation of special receptors in the tendons, muscles and ligaments of the body. These stimuli can result in deep relaxation, resetting of muscular tension and range of motion, lymph drainage, pain and inflammation reduction and pain relief. It can be used on ages- from babies to the elderly and frail for the extremely fit and the sedentary or debilitated. Bowenwork is gentle in application, partnering with the body for healing.
