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 on 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.

The mind/body approach to Bowenwork® specifically focuses on identifying and releasing a trauma that has been stored in the body, causing pain and dysfunction. The body's own interoception (internal awareness of sensation) and self-healing intelligence guides the pace and direction of the session to release both physical and emotional trauma that has been stored in the tissues. 

Our 'bodymind' is formed from a complex interrelationship of heredity together with a myriad of considerations of our personal, emotional, mental, environmental and spiritual history. This very personal and original history or biography is held as our 'memory'.

Using Bowen as a means of processing, in a structured, safe, quiet, supportive atmosphere, helps the client, whether child or adult, connect to the sensations in the body. Touch can bring up a memory, the memory will bring up a repressed emotion, repressed emotions can often be detected under body aches and pains. What we don't let ourselves feel or express becomes stuck and causes muscular tension rather like body armour, which over the years can become chronic, even permanent.  Only when these muscular tensions finally release can a state of well-being and relaxation follow.

Quotes

'After trauma the world is experienced with a different nervous system.  The survivor's energy now becomes focused on suppressing inner chaos, at the expense of spontaneous involvement in their lives.  These attempts to maintain control over unbearable psychological reactions can result in a whole range of physical symptoms, including fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue and other autoimmune diseases.  This explains why it is crucial for trauma treatment to engage the whole organism- body, mind and brain.'


by FREDERICK LEBOYER,  'Birth with our Violence'

'Traumatic symptoms are not caused by the 'triggering' event itself.  They stem from the frozen residue of energy that has not been resolved and discharged; this residue remains trapped in the nervous system where it can wreak havoc on our bodies and spirits.'

'Therapists no longer have to be 'the doctor', making pronouncements about patients; and patients no longer have to act brilliant or adjusted.  They too can trust themselves, because the body is the 'doctor'. The body makes its own diagnosis. That seems to be the miracle,.....it is only normal.'


by Dr. ARTHUR JANOV, 'The New Primal Scream' p236
