THE ART OF LISTENING TOUCH
Bodies have stories to tell. It is our belief that by having these stories truly heard, transformations take place, an unwinding happens, and a reorganizing can occur. A place that was stuck can feel new movement. A profound relaxation exists where there was once tension. In this state, our amazing bodies are able to rejuvenate and heal themselves. Our breathing, digestion, and circulation all can improve, which supports the immune system.
Our goal is to provide a sanctuary for healing to occur, as well as to hold a respectful space for both what is present as well as for what is potential. Our training enables us to be listening practionher, who can hear the stories that the body is telling.
We offer our service to everyone from infants to aging adults. Whether suffering from pain or simply seeking restoration, all are welcome.
Bowenwork is a gentle and effective technique for balancing tension patterns in the body. A Bowen session combines a series of precise soft tissue procedures with essential periods of waiting for the body to respond.Bowen addresses specific injuries and works on health problems that are both acute and chronic. Bowen has been used as a key part of holistic programs to address many stress and pain related conditions, including: injuries from overuse or trauma, headaches, fatigue, ear/throat issues, TMJ, ADD/ADHD, developmental delays, Depression, reproductive and menstrual problems.
The Bowen technique allows the body to heal itself with minimal intervention. Because of the subtlety of Bowen and the body’s continuous response to it, other forms of manipulative therapy performed up to four days before, or five day after, a Bowen session may interfere with optimal results.
Bowen sessions generally last from 20-50 minutes. The moves are gentle and purposeful and may be done through light clothing. A session involves one or more procedures, each of which consists of precise rolling moves applied in key locations along the body. During each procedure, the practitioner pauses for a few minutes to give the body time to integrate the moves.
BOWENWORK: A WESTERN PERSPECTIVE
Bowen facilitates a “shift” from the “stress response” to the “rest response.” Due to stress, the body’s Autonomic Nervous System (ANS) may need periodic “tune ups” to perform at its best. Since the ANS controls over 80% of the body’s functions, healing begins after the ANS shifts from the sympathetic (fight, flight or freeze response) into the para-sympathetic (rest, relaxation and repair response). Bowen facilitates this essential shift.
BOWENWORK: AN EASTERN PERSPECTIVE
Bowen may be impacting the same pathways or meridians that are addressed in eastern medicine.
BOWENWORK: AN INTEGRATIVE PERSPECTIVE
Both the nervous system and meridian system impact the fascial matrix that connects to internal organs, muscles and bones. Clients experience an increased sense of vitality and well-being as all of the pathways of the body continue to align themselves in the hours and days following a session. As one client observed “Bowen aligns the pathways in my body.”
