Your Bowenwork Session
Your first Bowenwork session
Your practitioner will take a health history and ask about the reason for your visit, so as to select the best Bowenwork moves to apply. During the session, you will be professionally draped for modesty and comfort.
Stefanie’s Bowenwork session takes approximately one hour. After each series of moves, your practitioner will wait a few minutes, to allow your body time to begin responding. Most people deeply relax during their Bowenwork session. It is recommended to increase your water intake before and after your session.
How many sessions will I need?
First-time clients will start with one session per week for the first three weeks. During this time, it is recommended not to have any other therapy that could interfere with the resetting effects of Bowenwork.
After three sessions are completed, clients are usually able to tell what changes their inner healing system has made. Clients with more complex conditions usually improve with additional sessions. For many, a monthly maintenance session is recommended to keep feeling balanced.
After your Bowenwork session
You will most likely notice changes in the next several days, as your body continues the process that began during your session. Sounder sleep and increased energy are commonly reported. Some changes may be noticeable right away:
• Reduced pain
• Greater range of motion
• A sense of relaxation and well-being
If your practitioner assigns ‘homework’ of gentle Bowenwork exercises, do them daily, beginning on the day after your session. This is an essential part of your care and will improve your results.
