What is Bowenwork?

Bowenwork is a cutting edge, hands-on clinical technique designed to reset your nervous system.


Therapists use gentle, measured moves in precise locations, which stimulate the body to release tension, often triggering a deep and profound healing process.

Bowenwork can quickly improve many health conditions, acute and chronic.  Minor issues like back, neck and knee pain, loss of range of motion, joint stiffness or over-use issues can easily be addressed with Bowenwork.

What makes this therapy unique is its ability to accelerate healing from long-standing conditions or complex disorders by re-informing the body's nervous system.  It's unique protocol allows for deep and lasting somatic changes in the body's behavior.

Bowenwork is Gentle, yet Effective. 


We are currently studying the benefits of Bowenwork for Cancer Patients and Veterans with PTSD.

This unique therapy is practiced by medical doctors, nurses, physical therapists, chiropractors, and massage practitioners all across the country.  Here in the Northwest, it is used at Swedish Medical Center’s Pain Clinic and taught at Bastyr University.
