What Kelly says about Bowenwork:
“One of the greatest distinctions I see with this work in comparison to other bodywork modalities is its direct but subtle nature. Bowenwork is speaking directly to the fascial and nervous system in a way that the nerve endings can respond and reset abnormal tension patterns. It is exciting because it is gentle on the client and the practitioner but can be profound in its effects.”
What Kelly loves about teaching:
“Teaching other practitioners about the human body and the latest research about fascia and its effects on multiple systems is my passion. We are on the cutting edge of learning about the role of our connective tissue and how it influences the health and well being of the rest of the systems. I love to teach practitioners about the interconnectedness of the human body and how by working on one part of the body, you can affect other parts. By using my 27 years as an Occupational Therapist and an owner of an integrative multidisciplinary clinic, I am able to educate my students about the many facets of healthcare, healthcare delivery, integration of Bowenwork into the medical model, how to talk to other practitioners about this amazing work and how to document it for those who are needing insurance reimbursement.”
