Karen Bruntgart D.O. Certified Bowenwork Practitioner, agreed to speak on "How Bowenwork Can Help You" at the February meeting. Bowenwork evokes deep relaxation and renews the body's capacity for self-healing. It is a gentle and effective manual therapy that balances tension patterns in the body, resulting in a deep state of relaxation. This modality, which originated in Australia by a man named Tom Bowen, addresses the body as a whole, affecting the musculosketal framework, fascia, nerves and internal organs. It is extremely gentle and can be done on a newborn baby up with no age limit. It helps the body to heal itself from old and new injuries.
Karen's presentation included a hands on demonstration with a member, who reported results on her injury.
"We had questions and answers and a very lively discussion," said Barbara.
The Chapter intends to meet in the spring on Wednesday, March 28, at Chad's Steakhouse at 5:30p.m. Barbara expressed her hope to see everyone there.
