Online appointments coming soon!

Due to the unfolding of the coronavirus and the latest CDC precautions and recommendations, we are working on developing an online option to have long distance appointments with whomever is open to that. You would need to have access to a computer for the online face to face contact. I will email a simple link that clients can join me in a face to face session via Zoom. We will be able to check in and speak about what’s happening and then I will commence a long distance session (which has been a part of my training) to support you and your health and wellness. If you do not have a computer we can text or phone call as well.

I have worked on many clients outside the county and state with good success. All my work can be incorporated into a long distance session .

I know this method is very different from Western Medicine, so if it is not something you are comfortable with please do not worry.

These sessions will be offered at a discounted rate in order to support as many people as I can that may be financially affected by closures and shutdowns.

Let me know if you would be interested in this method of therapy approach and we can set up an appointment.

With lots of heartfelt warmth and protection, be safe and use precautions at this time in history.

Keep Calm and send love out to the world with your prayers and intentions.

Tensegrity Medicine™ Approach 

to Bowenwork®

Tensegrity Medicine™ is the over all approach used within every session.  This is a whole body approach based on the latest scientific research related to connective tissue and the nervous system, which includes examining whole body systems and the influence of stress on their balance.  Providing you with a customized, holistic evaluation and treatment based on your own unique circumstances.  Focusing on body/mind strategies to help facilitate long term changes. 


 How is this approach different from traditional methods ?

  • No longer relies on outdated biomechanics model for assessment, instead looking at 3 dimensional balance.
  • Is not trying to find symmetry but explores the unique expression of the client.
  • No longer depending upon the approach that the therapist is the 'fixer', however, facilitates the clients own self healing mechanisms.
  • Is not operating from a disease model, but a wholeness paradigm.
  • Is not about treating the 'site of pain' but the system as a whole, including the energy system. 
  • Is not therapist driven, instead utilizes the client's 'body wisdom' to guide each unique session.

BOWENWORK® IS CONSIDERED TO BE THE 'HOMEOPATHIC' OF BODYWORK.

Reset your body's ability to heal itself! 


Bowenwork® is a system of touch that initiates a series of responses through stimulation of the nervous, musculoskeletal, fascial and energetic systems of the human body.

Practitioners perform sequences of small stimulations, called “moves” on specific points of the body, interspersed with rest periods. The Bowenwork® moves stimulate mechanoreceptors (nerve endings) that overlie both muscles and acupoints. The body’s response to this stimulation, which begins during the rest periods, includes a balancing of the autonomic nervous system and changes in the musculoskeletal system in the direction of increased symmetry. These effects, in turn remove blockages to the free flow of energy in the body. From the point of view of complementary health care, when the body’s nervous and energetic systems are in balance, its physical, emotional and mental functions are able to return to a healthy state.

 WHAT TO EXPECT


First Visit

On your first visit your practitioner will do an extensive evaluation including past medical history, functional movement, and full postural assessment, to determine possible asymmetries in your structure that may contribute to your pain and dysfunction. Then you will receive an appropriate session for that day. During your session, the practitioner will leave the table after each procedure (2 or more minutes) in order to allow your body time to respond.


What to Wear

Wear or bring light-weight loose fitting clothes that your practitioner can work through.


Some After Effects

Following the session, some changes may be noticeable right away. Pain may be reduced. Range of motion may have increased, and a deep sense of relaxation and well being may be felt.

You may notice changes over the next week as your body continues the process that began during your session. Sound sleep and increased energy are commonly reported. 

It is important to stay hydrated during this time. 

It is not uncommon to feel old injuries, memories, and pains begin to resurface. Do not suppress these sensations. These are signs your body is beginning to heal at a deeper level and these will pass usually within a few hours to a day.


Take daily walks to help integrate the session.

Wait at least a week for your next session. (Unless a re-injury occurs.)

Avoid other body therapies for four days following your session to ensure your body’s nervous system has no interruptions and try and avoid excessive HEAT OR ICE during the days in-between sessions.

Bowenwork continues to unfold in your nervous system for 7-10 days after your appointment.


Possible Homework

Often times, various stretches and exercises will be recommended to enhance and facilitate your healing. These exercises help to restore range of motion and movement and are an essential part of your care and will improve your results.


Follow Up Sessions:

Your practitioner will determine your treatment plan during your first session. Your goals, current health, and response to the treatment will dictate how many sessions are necessary. It is important you complete your treatment plan for the best results. Sessions are usually scheduled once per week or twice a month.
