Bowenwork for Chronic Conditions
Instructor: Alexia Monroe
Prerequisite: Module 7
This course is designed to increase the practitioner's knowledge of many forms of chronic illness,
and how best to apply Bowenwork when these conditions are present.
While Bowenwork practitioners often witness a dramatic resolution with acute conditions and
recent injuries, long-term, chronic and debilitating conditions are less likely to respond quite so
thoroughly or immediately. In working with patients who have chronic conditions, practitioners
can become overwhelmed by the intensity of the symptoms, and confused by complex symptom
pictures involving myriad problems.
This course will guide you in both session management and people management, helping you to
discriminate and prioritize your sessions for weakened and ill clients, and to engage your clients’
trust in long-term Bowenwork care. Case studies will be discussed, many of which reveal that
even when recovery is not 100%, success can be achieved in helping these clients gain
significantly increased quality of life.
This course will:
add to your confidence in handling serious conditions that may respond slowly or
incompletely, and enhance your ability to guide challenging cases towards positive outcomes
give you a basis for making decisions predicated on professional standards and sound
train you to work effectively with medical professionals overseeing the client's care
equip you to perform procedures in unusual positions that accommodate the special needs of
provide the opportunity for feedback on your pressures, so you can discover for yourself the

Deep Anatomy: Exploring Structure & Choice in Bowenwork Moves
Instructor: Nancy Pierson
No two clients are alike – each has their own story, their own physical history. There are no
hard-and-fast protocols to address a specific condition. Yet, with a deeper understanding of the
muscles, nerves, lymphatic vessels, and fascia underlying our moves, we can develop our own
intelligence in choosing appropriate procedures. Precise location, tissue-tension sense, and
overall quality of Bowenwork moves will give better results with clients.
This 2-day, 16-hour hands-on CE class offers anatomical hypotheses of why we do the things we
do. For example:
Why might the cramp procedure work?
Why might our variation on coccyx alleviate buttock pain?
What essential foundational roles do the prerequisites perform?
Further, in this expanded Deep Anatomy class we will review Module 1-6 procedures with an
eye to what additional structures we are affecting with each move; we will also explore how
nonobvious procedures may contribute to the resolution of certain conditions.
