Bowenwork is a dynamic system of muscle and connective tissue therapy that was developed by the late Tom Bowen in Geelong, Australia. It utilizes small but measured inputs to the body stimulating the body to heal itself, often profoundly. Bowenwork usually results in the relief of many specific injuries and other health problems, both acute and chronic. Signals are delivered to the nervous system to specific locations by the practitioner (on muscles, tendon, ligaments and nerves) and the body does the rest. This technique addresses the entire body by restoring balance via the autonomic nervous system. The sessions generally last 20-50 minutes. The moves are gentle but purposeful and can be done through light clothing.
