Be Well With Bowen

​Bowen works like no other therapy. People often say, “what is it like?” There really is no comparison.

It is a gentle type of bodywork that focuses on stimulating the fascia or connective tissue surrounding everything in our bodies. These unique movements over very specific parts of the body shift the nervous system into a “relax and heal” mode instead of the “fight or flight” mode many of us are in. The body cannot effectively heal itself until it can rest. Usually all that is needed for relief is 3-5 sessions. Children often respond even quicker. Some chronic conditions may need regular sessions but the goal is to increase time between sessions and ultimately have the body balanced and healing itself.

Some conditions responding well to this technique are:

  • Neurological or immune disorders
  • Parkinson’s disease
  • Lyme disease
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Chronic fatigue syndrome
  • PTSD
  • Stress and anxiety problems
  • Traumatic and overuse injuries
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Sciatica
  • Concussion
  • Sprains and strains
  • Neck, shoulder and back pain
  • Scoliosis
  • TMJ syndrome
  • Migraines
  • Gastrointestinal dysfunctions
  • Orthopedic problems
  • Podiatric problems
  • Support sessions—pre-and post-surgery and during chemotherapy.

“I have suffered from severe allergy induced sinus infections (treated repeatedly with strong antibiotics) most of my adult life. After discovering a milk allergy & avoiding dairy, along with taking daily allergy med, I still felt congestion and fought to avoid infection. During my first Bowen treatment I literally felt my sinuses drain (something they NEVER did on their own.) With subsequent treatments my sinuses have remained clear. The tightness, heaviness, & pain in my head has not returned & I’m infection free! (I do crave a Bowen treatment now & then!)” – Michelle T.

“As an infant, my son battled ear infections constantly and this led him to be on anti-biotics often in his early years. Thankfully he outgrew the ear infections but the constant exposure to anti-biotics impacted the natural flora in his digestive system and he was often constipated. To aid him with his constipation, he was on Miralax for years. After hearing of the potential benefits of Bowen from Rachel, we decided to give this therapy a try to see if we could move him away from the Miralax.  After two visits with Rachel, we were able to cut his daily dose in half and we will continue to work our way down to eliminating Miralax all together. Rachel took the time to fully explain not only to me but my eight year old son what the goal of the therapy was. She also was excellent at helping my son understand how the treatment was going to be done. I feel kids are often the most difficult patients, but Rachel made it look so easy and my son really enjoyed the experience from start to finish.  It was fantastic to see how quickly the body can react to Bowen. I would recommend Bowen, and Rachel in particular, to anyone who is looking for a more natural path to healing their body.” – Kevin F.
