Bowenwork is a very gentle soft tissue therapy that triggers your body’s nervous system to rebalance and reset to a better level of function. You don’t need to have a problem to benefit from Bowenwork, but Bowen therapy can help with muscle pain and restriction, even from decades-old injuries.
The gentle touch of a Bowenwork session can produce deep relaxation and stimulate the body to release restriction in the muscle and fascia, resetting proper balance. Working from the inside, Bowenwork sets into motion a process of change that can continue for 3-10 days or more. Improvement from Bowenwork often outlasts the results of traditional massage or physical therapy.

Every body is different, so response will be unique to each individual. Most clients feel a deep sense of relaxation. The session itself is just the beginning of the process. Bowenwork will be processing anywhere from 3-10 or more days, so be patient and don’t be worried if you feel worse before you feel better. That simply means change is taking place. Walking helps integrate the work.
Drink water and take a short walk each day to maximize the process.
