What is Bowenwork?

Bowenwork is a system of subtle and precise mobilizations of fascia,muscles,tendons, and neves,
called “Bowen Moves”.  The moves are performed using the thumbs and fingers, applying only
gentle pressure.  Specificequences of moves are performed, with pauses between to
allow time for the body to respond, thereby stimulating the body to restore its own
balance.   The technique was developed by the late Tom Bowen from Geelong, Australia

Ossie Rentsch met Tom in 1974 and began learning his techniques; consequently he was able to start teaching with his wife Elaine in 1986.

The technique is so effective and addresses a wide array of complaints that 32 countries have practitioners.


How it Works:

Bowen addresses the whole body by restoring balance thru the autonomic nervous system shifting from the sympathetic to the parasympathetic which is your Rest, Relax and Repair mode.

It is also believed that the stretch reflex, joint proprioceptors, superficial fascia, segmental viscerosomatic spinal reflexes, acupuncture & meridian points, along with harmonic vibration also play important roles.

The lymphatic system is activated, thereby stimulating the immune system.

Detoxification may occur during a Bowenwork session, which in turn improves functioning at the cellular level.
