Address the body as a whole

What Bowenwork does
The practitioner places fingers or thumbs on the skin over precise points on muscles, tendons or other soft structures. She then applies gentle rolling pressure to effect a change in the underlying tissue. The changes stimulate the body's autonomic nervous system to rebalance. Once this occurs, the body can initiate a healing response on structural and energetic levels.
How many sessions are needed?
Three to five sessions one week apart are usually all that are required for most sports injuries, work related injuries and problems brought about by long-term overuse.
Clients with more complex conditions usually improve with additional sessions
Neurological and some other chronic conditions may require ongoing maintenance sessions.
What to expect in a session
Wear or bring light-weight, loose fitting clothing that I can work through. Or you may choose to wear your underclothes and be professionally draped for modesty and comfort.
The actual hands on work may take very few of the 20-60 minutes of the entire session.
After each series of moves, I will make sure you are comfortable and will leave the room to allow your body to begin responding.
What to expect afterward
Some changes may be noticeable right away:
Greater range of motion
a sense of relaxation and well -being
You will most likely notice changes in the next several days as your body continues the process that began during your session. Sounder sleep and increased energy are commonly reported.
Session: can last between 20 minutes - 60 minutes depending on what you need for that session.
