I was at the American Massage Therapy Association national convention at the end of August in 2015. I put my name in to win a Bowen Technique 4 hour course. Guess what? I won! Now we all win. I look forward to sharing this new technique with you by October. I will send updates about it when I know more
What is Bowen Technique?
The Bowen Technique is a remedial, hands-on therapy that is applied using very gentle pressure. The practitioner uses thumbs and fingers on precise points of the body to perform Bowen’s unique sets of rolling-type moves which stimulate the muscles and soft tissue of the body. There is no manipulation or adjustment of hard tissue and no force is used. The experience of a treatment is gentle, subtle and relaxing. It is believed that the Bowen Technique prompts the body to reset, repair and balance itself and clients report the experience of pain relief, improvement of function and recovery of energy.
The Bowen Technique is a non-intrusive complementary hands-on therapy. The technique is based on the theory that gentle moves over precise points of the body can prompt the body’s innate ability to relieve pain, restriction and imbalance without the need for deep, manipulative or forceful treatment. Bowen practitioners work holistically with their clients and expect to work alongside allopathic health professionals to support optimum health for their clients.For example, one of the most common complaints for which people seek Bowen treatment is back pain.
The average number of treatments people have is three to four. There are always exceptions to any rule, and some people will need further or even on-going treatment.
Painful and restricted shoulders are also a particular favorite as are neck pain, respiratory conditions and headache patterns. Bowen is being widely used for sports injuries as well, with rugby clubs and premiership football clubs showing interest. Not only do sportsmen report fewer injuries when treated regularly but they also notice enhanced performance.
The Bowen Technique was developed in the 1950s by Australian Tom Bowen. Training courses in Mr Bowen’s technique were first offered in the late 1980s in Australia and came to the UK in 1993.
Come and allow yourself new tools to understanding yourself and the world around you. Why do these tools help you with massage? I personally love to do bodywork on people that journey and occasionally will guide you into a journey. It's a tool for holistic wellness. Which is why I have such a strong desire to share this with you. We can delve deeper together and solve some core issues by witnessing what your body tells you and receiving Chinese Cranial Sacral and Reflexology or any of my other massage mixes. These tools at this workshop can help you learn if you haven't already used this style to witness a new way of looking at whats going on inside you and around you. We can use a deeper level of intention with our bodywork together. Often our chronic pain can come from a more subtle emotional part of being. Check out the best of the best in the inward journey business that I know.
I occasionally do creative self empowerment life coaching with any issue you want to bring me. This event is such a great tool to creating a tool box for anything that comes up in your life. Some exercises I share with some of you have core roots in what Regina, Kathy, and Chi Chi will be teaching on Saturday September 12th. These 3 women that are hosting this event are amazing at what they teach. If you feel a call to work with me for my healing intuition and guiding that you receive from me. You might feel that similar pull from these women.
Check out this schedule of events. When you mention me you will receive $5 off the event. When you pre register text or call Chi Chi at 412-804-8010 or pay cash at the door. I will be volunteering so I hope to see you at the door or some where where I can assist you and potentially snag a hug from me to you.
Enter the cocoon of Sacred Space, rest awhile as you delve deeper into your spiritual calling. Explore new ways of knowing & skills. Develop your hidden talents & gifts. Emerge transformed & ready to take flight.
11 AM-12 PM Welcome & Opening Ceremony
We step into sacred space & leave ordinary time behind, building a central altar & setting the group intention for personal transformation. Together we create a crucible where the energies cultivated by the group are gathered & amplified for the highest good of all. *Bring 1 or 2 items for creating the central altar.
12-12:50 PM Journeying Into the Cocoon - Regina Rivers
As the caterpillar you presently are, you will journey into the cocoon, deep within the Self. On this shamanic journey, you will ask yourself, like the caterpillar asked Alice, “Whooo … are … you?” The answer holds the intention & guidance needed now…on the verge of transforming your life! The cocoon is the catalyst for change from which you will breakthrough! *Bring a mat to lie on, a pillow & eye covering.
1-1:50 PM Sequestered in Sacred Space - Kathy Evans-Palmisano
Just like the chrysalis resting in the cocoon, you will wrap yourself in centered stillness, learning to design, build & dedicate your personal altar of transformation. Discovering the elements of ritual, you will create a personal ceremony to imprint & hold the vibrations of your transformational journey from today onward.
2-2:50 PM Awakening to Energy - Kathy Evans-Palmisano
The chrysalis begins to awaken & re-attunes to the world around it. As you awaken to your greater spiritual calling, you will become attuned to the energetic nature of the world around you. You will experience your own electromagnetic field & begin to become sensitized to the energy fields around you, through your hands & dowsing techniques. *Bring pendulum & dowsing rods if you have.
3-4 PM Break for Food
4-5:50 PM Breakthrough in Intuition - Rev. Marjorie Rivera
From a place of stillness, we will learn to embrace the unknown & search for the pieces of sacred future-self already contained within. You will learn to recognize the sound of your inner teacher (ego vs. intuition), identify your personal intuitive style, & break through from random to “on purpose” as you deepen your intuitive ability to connect to & ask questions of your future self.
6-7 PM Upwriting Yourself - Taking Flight - Regina Rivers
You have broken through the chrysalis! In this meditative writing exercise, envision where your new wings will take you! Receive the final steps in knowing more fully who you are!
To Follow: Mandala Coloring
Create a butterfly mandala to adorn your altar or home. Supplies provided or bring your own.
7-8 PM Closing Fire Ceremony
This ceremony acknowledges our transformations, sets our intention & expresses gratitude for our accomplishments. We then re-enter our 3rd dimensional consensus reality.
I love giving and learning about massages and love to help people know how to take care of themselves and their friends! I might share some basics or go into some deeply shared wellness tips from my experiences to help you along your life happiness.
