The Bowenwork Technique is a specific series of muscles and connective tissue movements designed to treat a wide range of problems and injures. Bowenwork addresses every system in the body: internal organ systems as well as the musculo-skeletal structure. These gentle, powerful moves send neurological impulses to the brain. The brain processes and feeds impulses back to realign the body. Respecting this feedback loops essential for allowing the body to restore its natural balance.

The Bowenwork Technique will continue to be integrated over the next five days. Your awareness in the following instructions will support this process.

Day of Treatment

Break up your sitting time… get up and walk around for a few minutes every 20-30 minutes and then you can sit down again. This is important even when you are driving, you really need to stop and get out to, walk around. However, you may lie down today and nap without getting up to walk around. Adhere to this for 24 hours unless you have low back problems do this for 5 days.

When you go to stand up either from a chair or bed as an example make sure you weight bare evenly on both feet as you did when you finished your treatment. This will help you to maintain the body balancing from your treatment.

NO strenuous exercising should be done after your Bowen work session. Only gentle exercise such as walking or swimming, these can be beneficial.

Drink plenty of water to help the body to expel waste products as you detoxify from your session.

NO hot tub baths, hot tubs, heating pads, or ice packs. But a brief warm shower is fine.

Bowenwork Technique is gentle and can be done over light and loose fitting clothes. However, some moves will require your therapist to be directly on your bare skin.

These moves are very subtle movements that are performed over muscles and connective tissue in specific patterns. The moves send messages deep into the body’s tissue to retrieve memories of relaxation, helping the body to recall balance, and a state of wellbeing.

Pausing at certain crucial times in a pattern allows time for the nervous system and fascia to respond, and this begins the healing process.

The body will continue responding for several days afterward, unless interrupted by injury or a strong external stimulation, including trauma, heat and bodywork.

Often a few sessions are all that is needed to correct the clent’s problem. Bowenwork addresses not only the musculo-skeletal systems; it also affects fascia, nerves and internal organs. When this takes place the body can respond in its circulation, lymphatic, digestive, respiratory systems, really the whole body responds in a very deep way. The benefits are usually apparent within 2-6 sessions.

Many clients have described a Bowenwork session as being a gentle and calming technique.

As well as adults, this technique can be used on infants and the aged.
