Krista Connolly, RSHOM, CCH

Homeopathy & Bowen Specialist

Bowenwork (also known as Bowtech – the Original Bowen Technique) evokes deep relaxation and renews the body’s capacity for self-healing. It is a dynamic system of muscle and connective tissue therapy that was developed by the late Tom Bowen in Geelong, Australia. Sometimes called the homeopathy of bodywork, it utilizes subtle inputs to the body, stimulating the body to heal itself — often profoundly.

A series of 3 to 5 sessions one week apart will allow the body to balance and reset patterns for optimal health. Many conditions may require additional sessions, and the goal is to move sessions further apart and give the body more time for integration. The effects hold well because this non-invasive modality allows the body to do the work itself.

Some conditions responding well to this technique:

  • Neurological or immune disorders
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • 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
  • Infertility
  • Bed wetting
  • Scoliosis
  • TMJ syndrome
  • Migraines
  • Gastrointestinal dysfunctions
  • Orthopedic problems
  • Podiatry problems
  • Support sessions—pre-and post-surgery and during chemotherapy.

This very gentle work is appropriate for anyone, from newborns to the elderly or infirm. Though not intended to be ongoing therapy, it is helpful in cases of chronic or neurological conditions to continue session periodically.

Bowenwork Intake Form

What to expect from your first appointment

I will review the intake form and decide on the plan of treatment. The first visit for Bowen includes all the Basic Relaxation Moves in Bowen, which are for the lower back thoracic area and neck. Putting these into place sets the body for the following week to tackle the chief complaint.


About ½ year ago, I slipped and fell on the ice. I landed in a sitting position, but felt alright. I went through the day with no issues. However, when I woke up the next morning, I had an aggravating lower back-pain. I got up and started to move around, and did not at all like the way it felt. So I decided to exercise quickly, thinking that I just needed to get some blood flowing through it – I hadn’t connected the fall on the ice to the notion that I perhaps injured my back. So I did some jumping jacks… it continued to feel sharp and painful, but I grit my teeth and pushed through anyway. When that definitely wasn’t helping, I got on the floor and started to do sit-ups. It was very, very painful… I took it slowly, pressing against the pain, but I could only do about 6 of these. Now I really, really hurt. I realized that I couldn’t sit… I couldn’t stand… I couldn’t kneel or bend forward… it was extremely painful (all I wanted to do was scream)! Well, I wound up flat on my back in bed. I could barely move; I couldn’t put a pillow behind my head (too painful) and I had to crawl to the bathroom. The X-ray showed 2 slipped disks that were pushing on the sciatic nerve. At a chiropractor, with $40 per session for 5 sessions, the gains were minimal. Finally, I realized to call Krista. It quickly seemed very clear to her that, along with a Homeopathic acute case remedy, I needed Bowen therapy. It would cost less, work faster, and do an all-round better job than a chiropractic alternative. I have never tried Bowen before, but I knew to trust Krista’s judgment. The first session is always a ‘warm up’ session; I didn’t feel much of anything at all. As Krista said it would happen that way as the body does the initial job of balancing and cleansing. The second session… the ‘hit it’ session, really astonished me (and I’m not the sort of fellow who ever expects much of alternative treatments without seeing the results first). This second session took away about 85% of the pain within about 40 minutes. I could get up and walk without a cane for the first time… on the trip back, I intentionally walked down the length of a block to get a juice at the corner grocery, just to feel the astonishment of being back up on my feet again! Now, I have to ask myself why in the world I aim for a traditional doctor when I have an issue that COULD be fixed with something like Bowen or Homeopathy. It is much cheaper to take the secondary route, and usually works MUCH faster. And all that with no ill side-effects. And with less cost than I could have ever imagined. We should CERTAINLY have gone to the Bowen practitioner first. And not the chiropractor. I am absolutely humbled by the realization that I have to break my preconceptions – which I now understand were taught to my parents and myself by the traditional medical industry. They want your money. Krista… Homeopathy… Bowen… want to HEAL you. Very, very big difference – and THANK YOU, Krista, for doing what you do so well! – Dave : Orlando, FL | April 28, 2008
