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.
Each session typically involves gentle rolling pressure along the muscles, tendons, and fascia to effect a change in the underlying tissue. The changes stimulate the body’s autonomic nervous system to rebalance and will initiate a healing response on structural and energetic levels.
After your first session, some changes may be noticeable right away:
Greater range of motion
A sense of relaxation and well-being
You will most likely notice changes n the next several days as your body continues the process that began during your session. Sounder sleep and increased energy are often reported. I may assign “homework” of gentle Bowenwork exercises that you will need to do daily beginning the day after your session and will greatly improve your results.
Bowenwork, also known as the Bowen Technique, or Bowtech, is a system of muscle and connective tissue therapy that was developed by the late Thomas Bowen of Geelong, Australia. It uses small, gentle movements over specific locations on the body to stimulate the body’s own healing, and is safe and appropriate for everyone, from newborns to the very elderly and frail.
After your session, some changes are noticeable right away. Reduced pain, increased range-of-motion, and a greater sense of relaxation and well-being are often reported. Just some of the conditions which can be treated with Bowenwork are:
- traumatic or sports injuries
- overuse injuries
- back, neck, shoulder and knee pain
- respiratory conditions/asthma
- digestive conditions/GERD, reflux
- gynecological/fertility issues
- chronic stress
