BOWENWORK IS CONSIDERED TO BE THE 'HOMEOPATHIC' OF BODYWORK.

Reset your body's ability to heal itself! 


Bowenwork® is a system of touch that initiates a series of responses through stimulation of the nervous, musculoskeletal, fascial and energetic systems of the human body.

Practitioners perform sequences of small stimulations, called “moves” on specific points of the body, interspersed with rest periods. The Bowenwork moves stimulate mechanoreceptors (nerve endings) that overlie both muscles and acupoints. The body’s response to this stimulation, which begins during the rest periods, includes a balancing of the autonomic nervous system and changes in the musculoskeletal system in the direction of increased symmetry. These effects, in turn remove blockages to the free flow of energy in the body. From the point of view of complementary health care, when the body’s nervous and energetic systems are in balance, its physical, emotional and mental functions are able to return to a healthy state.

 WHAT TO EXPECT


First Visit

On your first visit your practitioner will do an extensive evaluation including past medical history, functional movement, and full postural assessment, to determine possible asymmetries in your structure that may contribute to your pain and dysfunction. Then you will receive an appropriate session for that day. During your session, the practitioner will leave the table after each procedure (2 or more minutes) in order to allow your body time to respond.


What to Wear

Wear or bring light-weight loose fitting clothes that your practitioner can work through.


Some After Effects

Following the session, some changes may be noticeable right away. Pain may be reduced. Range of motion may have increased, and a deep sense of relaxation and well being may be felt.

You may notice changes over the next week as your body continues the process that began during your session. Sound sleep and increased energy are commonly reported. 

It is important to stay hydrated during this time. 

It is not uncommon to feel old injuries, memories, and pains begin to resurface. Do not suppress these sensations. These are signs your body is beginning to heal at a deeper level and these will pass usually within a few hours to a day.


Take daily walks to help integrate the session.


Wait at least a week for your next session. (Unless a re-injury occurs.)

Avoid other body therapies for a week following your session to ensure your body’s nervous system has no interruptions and try and avoid excessive HEAT OR ICE during the days in-between sessions.

Bowenwork continues to unfold in your nervous system for 7-10 days after your appointment.


Possible Homework

Often times, various stretches and exercises will be recommended to enhance and facilitate your healing. These exercises help to restore range of motion and movement and are an essential part of your care and will improve your results.


Follow Up Sessions:

Your practitioner will determine your treatment plan during your first session. Your goals, current health, and response to the treatment will dictate how many sessions are necessary. It is important you complete your treatment plan for the best results. Sessions are usually scheduled once per week or twice a month.
