What is Bowenwork?
Bowenwork is a neuromuscular and connective tissue technique that affects the joints, muscles, nerves, fluids and energy of the body. It works primarily through the nervous system on both structural and energetic levels. Utilizing a gentle, light touch on specific muscles, tendons, ligaments, and nerves, it elicits a response using the autonomic nervous system. Bowtech originated in Australia over 40 years ago and is rapidly becoming popular in America.
