Bowenwork® is a holistic, soft-tissue technique that relaxes and returns the body to a healing state. A Bowenwork practitioner applies light pressure through a minimal number of precisely located moves or touches over tendons, muscles and nerve bundles. In response the body resets its various systems, bringing the person into balance and promoting healing and well-being.

Each person responds differently to a Bowenwork session.

Everyone responds to Bowenwork according to what his or her body needs in order to heal. Often a person's body begins to respond almost immediately. In most cases, after only a few, gentle moves over muscle and other soft tissue, healing can begin on the physical, chemical, emotional, mental and energetic levels.

Bowenwork practitioners routinely see hundreds of conditions respond positively to Bowenwork. In addition to the many musculoskeletal conditions that improve, problems relating to respiration, digestion, reproduction, vitality, energy and even mood often respond as well.

Is Bowenwork right for you?

Bowenwork's gentle, non-invasive nature is the key to its success, and attracts many people to it, whether they are interested in exploring Bowenwork as practitioners, to help with their own chronic or acute conditions, or to support the health of family and friends.

  • Bowenwork is gentle and safe. Anyone, from newborns to the aged and infirm, can safely receive a session, even if they cannot receive other types of body therapies.
  • Bowenwork's gentle application makes it very easy on the practitioner, and presents little risk of developing repetitive strain injuries and "absorbing" the effects of a client's emotional and health issues, two situations that often contribute to burnout. Learn more about how Bowenwork benefits practitioners, whether certified professionals or those who work only on family and friends.
  • Bowenwork can be performed in many settings. No special equipment, lotions, or oils are needed, and it is generally performed through lightweight clothing rather than on bare skin.
