Bowen is a gentle form of body work in which subtle moves performed over the muscles and connective tissue send messages deep into the body, retrieving cellular memory of a relaxed, balanced way of well-being. It is a system of subtle and precise mobilizations called "Bowen moves" over muscles, tendons, nerves, and fascia. The moves are performed using the thumbs and fingers applying only gentle, non-invasive pressure. A treatment consists of a series of specific sequences of moves called procedures, with frequent pauses to allow time for the body to respond.
The practitioner must strive to do the minimum of moves or procedures to trigger in the body the desired self- healing response. Doing too many mobilizations could actually be counterproductive. The sicker the patient is or the more acute the condition is, the less is done during the session and the less pressure will be used to do the moves and, therefore, the more profound the effect will be on the body. One motto of the technique is "Less is more" and the therapist must sense when enough has been done.Buy Now
