"I'm simply amazed at how such a light touch can make me feel so 'gosh dang' incredible.
Is this magic?"
but it might feel like it.
In short, Bowenwork is a light-touch bodywork technique that helps reconnect the body and mind. It is gentle and appropriate for anyone. It tends to leave most people feeling very calm, "lighter", more grounded, and in less pain.
At length, Bowenwork is a deeply relaxing and effective soft-tissue bodywork technique performed over specific points on the body with the therapist’s fingers and thumbs. These gentle 'moves' directly impact the nervous system and initiate full-body re-balancing and healing via the fascial (connective tissue) network. There are also 'waits' between sets of moves during which the practitioner steps away from the client to allow the Bowenwork moves time to fully integrate with the body and brain (not unlike acupuncture).
Bowenwork works from within according to your body’s own physiological blueprint of ideal health. It has helped countless around the world tap into their own restorative abilities. Our bodies and brains are capable of more than we know, but sometimes they just need a little 'nudge' in the right direction.
Bowenwork can help alleviate many conditions; from stress and anxiety, to chronic fatigue and insomnia, and even acute injuries, chronic pain, and sometimes even illness and serious conditions.
Bowenwork is for everybody. Throughout our lives, the body and the the brain has many opportunities to become disconnected. This happens because of trauma, disorders, disabilities, accidents and injuries, repetitive strain, sickness, dysphoria, dysmorphia, rocky childhoods, difficulties in the womb or when we were born, and so much more. The disconnect is a defense mechanism: it aims to protect us from feeling too overwhelmed during especially stressful times in our lives, minds, and bodies. But if the body and the mind do not re-connect after events of stress and/or trauma, we can struggle to heal, be happy, or feel whole.
Bowenwork attempts to repair this disconnect and gently reintroduce the body back to the mind. It balances and heals non-invasively and at your body's own pace, so anyone of any age, condition, or handicap may benefit. Even if you have nothing wrong, per say, Bowenwork can help you feel relaxed, centered, and refreshed.
