I have begun my training in Bowenwork through the American Bowen Academy. It is a gentle modality that is considered the "homeopathy of body work" that originated in Australia by Tom Bowen. Using gentle movements, this technique provides the body with the information it needs to realign and begin the work of self healing. Specific signals are given to the nervous system at various locations of fascia, muscles, tendons, ligaments and nerves and allows it to shift gears from fight or flight (sympathetic nervous system) to rest and restore (giving dominance to the parasympathetic nervous system). This technique addresses the body as a whole, rather than a part with an ailment. This is perfect for children and adults of all ages.
If you are someone that has suffered from pain and dysfunction that through self care, PT, regular massage or other methods of healing.... and nothing seems to be working... Bowenwork may hold the key to unlocking where you are stuck. It is a therapy that builds upon itself so help the autonomic nervous system remember the stimuli given in previous sessions. It is recommended to begin with 3 sessions at least 10 days apart.
Please visit these 2 websites for more information about the efficacy of this technique. It is truly amazing.
