MY PRACTICE

I became certified in Bowen Therapy in October of 2007. Prior to that I had a bodywork practice that included modalities such as Trigger Point Therapy, Deep Tissue massage, Reiki and Reflexology.  Although this was satifying in the short run I frequently found clients returning for recurring problems. 

I became attracted to Bowen Therapy when I learned that it worked with the nervous system; the source of most pain in the body.  Bowen resets the nervous system so that it evaluates what programs it may be running that are no longer necessary.  An example of this is with trigger points which may initially be established intentionally by the nervous system to reduce mobilization so healing can occur.  Frequently those trigger points continue to be stimulated, reducing mobility and causing pain long after they are needed.


Well Body Bowenwork  is located in North Oakland near the Berkeley border on Telegraph Avenue.

Can Bowen Help me?

Bowen Technique has been helpful with physical ailments in many categories including, but not limited to, pain and dysfunction. It can also help the body recover from injury or surgery. 

In a strictly medical sense, Bowen Technique must not be considered to "cure" anything.  Bowen stimulates the body to engage its own recovery mechanisms.  The work initiates the innate healing response of the body to address existing conditioning and imbalances. 

Because Bowen balances the nervous system and engages innate healing there is no limit on what types of ailments can resolve. Unlike conventional medicine, no diagnosis is required to treat condition. Bowen is remarkable with conditions that can not be diagnosed, or are told they are "in your head".

Many people discover that Bowen gets them results despite having had the condition for years and even after they have tried "everything".

Some examples of conditions that Bowen helps with consistently are Back Pain, Neck Pain, Stiffness (feeling old) Foot pain, Sciatica,  Headaches, Shoulder Pain, Hip pain and achiness, Stress, PMS (yes really), plantar fasciitis,  "Colic", Respiratory issues, Nervous System disorders, IBS and other digestive issues,.  Because pain and emotions occupy the same space in the brain, many people express that they feel emotionally lighter following a session.
