WHAT IS BOWENWORK
Bowenwork as it is called is a gentle soft-tissue technique in which the body is relaxed and thus returns to a healing state. Performed on a massage table while the client is wearing light, comfortable clothing’s gentle, rolling moves are made over muscle, tendon and nerve bundles which assists the body to reset itself promoting health and well being.
After a few minutes, the client becomes very relaxed and sometimes falls asleep. It is during this time that the body communicates within itself at a very deep level to align itself within various systems. It is truly a HOLISTIC treatment.

All Bowen treatments are performed on a massage table. Light clothing such as a tee shirt, yoga type pants and a pair of socks is the normal attire. No nylon pants or shirts (causes slippage) and definitely no jeans. Women feel more comfortable wearing a sports bra.
The normal session usually will take about an hour. However sometimes specific procedures require only a few moves but require the rest of the time to process on the table. Bowen lasts for about 5-10 days after the session is over. Please follow the “after a bowenwork session” instruction sheet to maximize your treatment results.
Subsequent treatments vary from person to person. Injuries may only require 1 or 2 treatments. Chronic situations usually require 6 treatments to fully benefit from long term ailments. Everyone is different. After you are feeling better, you may require a once a month “tune up” to maintain your treatment, it really goes a long way to keep you in your best shape.
