Dr. Jasper, ND is an experienced Bowen therapist. She has actively been using this effective, gentle, hands-on treatment for over 15 years. Bowen, aka BowTech/ Bowenwork/ The Original Bowen Technique, is a gentle form of bodywork in which very subtle moves are performed over the muscles and connective tissue (fascia), often where stretch-reflexors are abundant. Interestingly, the points at which many Bowen procedures are performed are also acupuncture points. When these stretch-reflexor/points are activated, the message travels to the nervous system and back to the muscle/connective tissue, telling it to lengthen and relax. It makes sense then that there is a brief pause between Bowen maneuvers, in order to allow the message from the maneuver to move from muscle/connective tissue to the brain and back again.
When all other hands-on therapies have failed to help, Bowen is often the technique that is the best fit! For the patients that have difficulty with deep-tissue therapies (especially those suffering from fibromyalgia), Bowen can be the one therapy that can provide the pain relief they've been searching for. Dr. Jasper, ND uses Bowen for pain syndromes, acute and chronic injuries, teeth-grinding, menstrual cramps, arthritis, headaches, and much more!
