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.
