Experience one of Nature's most amazing healing modalities ... BowenWork of Australia. Bowen Therapist Paula A. Sabharwal will be hosting an event on Wednesday evenings from 6.15 PM through 8.15 PM @ Bombay Nick's Chai Bar on East Avenue in Livermore.

Bowen Therapy or Bowen Technique (also called Bowenwork or Bowenbalance) is a variety of bodywork techniques that are based upon the practice and studies of Tom Bowen (1916 - 1982). Thomas Ambrose Bowen (Tom) lived and worked in Geelong, Victoria Australia. He called himself an osteopath until that word became a protected title in Victoria in the 1970s.

Tom studied bodywork all his working life and created specific sequences of moves that address the fascia at points of muscles, tendons and ligaments at timed intervals. The rolling move became a signature of Bowen that will release and stimulate an integrative, self correcting response from the body.

The fascial connective tissue forms a 3D web surrounding every tissue in the body from the dense connective tissue: bone to the liquid connective tissue: blood. The fascia is the largest sensory organ in the body and its recptors in the soft tissue are a way to 'get at' the organisation of the body's neuromuscular physiology and tissue organisation.

Bowen is effective for a wide range of painful conditions. It is a holistic therapy and does not need a detailed diagnosis of disease in order to initiate the integrative and self-corrective responses of healing process. As a therapy, Bowen can assist the healing process in its own right.

Paula is a Certified Bowenwork Practitioner and continues to be a skilled, intuitive and passionate therapist since 2001. She had a chronic "FROZEN SHOULDER" that was "Magically" fixed from her Bowenwork sessions! Since that time she has treated many clients from pre-birth to great - great Grandmothers.
