About Bowenwork: Bowenwork is a gentle, non-invasive soft tissue modality in which the provider uses thumbs and fingertips in precise locations in a rolling motion over muscles, ligaments, tendons, and nerves to activate the innate healing response of the body to rebalance and restore. Bowenwork is known and practiced worldwide and is in high demand as a restorative therapy in many healthcare facilities due to its efficient and effective remediation of symptoms. Bowenwork addresses issues of structural imbalance and pain and also assists the body to shift subtle energy patterns affecting emotional regulation and vitality. Students learn by self paced progression through modular, hands on instructional classes leading to practitioner certification through the American Bowen Academy.
