What happens during your session?
A typical Bowenwork® session generally lasts from 30-60 minutes. Clients usually lie on a massage/bodywork table or bed, or may be seated in a chair if required, for comfort. During a session, the client often drops into deep relaxation or falls asleep or experience profound relaxation. A 'session' involves one or more 'procedures', each of which consists of several sets of 'moves'. The moves are gentle, but purposeful, and can be done through light clothing. Between each set of moves, the practitioner pauses for as many minutes as are needed for the client's body to begin responding. As the nervous system begins to adjust the tension level in the muscles, the practitioner assesses when the client is ready for the next set of moves. A common approach in a session is to balance the entire body by addressing the lower back, then the upper back, and then the neck. In contrast to other hands-on therapies, where the practitioner imposes correction on the client through manipulation, Bowenwork® facilitates the body in balancing itself, with minimal intervention. Because of the nature of Bowen Technique, and the body's continuing response to it over several days, other forms of manipulative therapy are discouraged for up to five days after a session.
