Bowenwork®/Bowtech® is unique in the field of bodywork. Its relatively few, gentle "moves" over muscle and other soft tissue address the whole body, stimulating it to reset and heal itself via the central nervous system. The healing may occur at all levels as needed: physical, chemical, emotional, mental, energetic.
A Bowenwork session consists of several series of gentle moves through light-weight clothing or on skin. In a Bowenwork office or clinic, the client usually lies on a soft bodywork table or, as needed for comfort (such as pregnancy), sits in a chair. However, Bowenwork can be done anywhere -- on the sports field, in a hospital room, at the site of an accident, on an airplane or train.
A session typically lasts from 30 minutes to an hour. Often, a surprisingly few sessions are needed to alleviate complaints, whether structural or functional, even if long-standing. And the results hold for a long time, generally until there is a re-injury
Bowenwork is appropriate for everyone from newborns to the very elderly and frail. There are no contraindications for a Bowenwork session.
