Simply Bowen with Maria Lofquist
Each person is a unique individual. Although we all have a heart, liver, kidneys and spine etc., we all have an individual identity that makes us unique, and thus everyone has their own story.
Mine began in a car accident in 2003 when I was struck from behind by a drunk driver while in line at a red light. As a result I suffered primarily, neck and head injuries that would have me unable to work for several years.
At the time I didn’t know about Bowen, nor was it available in the Minneapolis region where I lived. Instead I did all the usual healing practices: traditional medicine, chiropractic, acupuncture, physical therapy, massage, cranial-sacral therapy, etc. All of these treatments helped but after all that, I was still not my old self.
I was first introduced to Bowen on a trip back home to New Zealand where my mother, a cardiology technician, had learned the techniques. After just three sessions it was clear to me that I must do what I could to learn Bowenwork and upon my return to the U.S.A. that is exactly what I did.
All of my Bowen training has been the Original Bowenwork Technique as developed by the late Tom Bowen, through the Bowenwork Academy, U.S.A. Beginning with the “Basic Techniques” (completed in 2007) I have expanded my knowledge with advanced training including “Specialized Procedures” and the “Mind/Body/Bowen” techniques. This approach to the work takes on a whole new level of healing that truly finds the root causes for the issues experienced today, that may be set back as far as birth. And it was here that I finally found the relief and healing I was so much in need of.
Bowen is fascinating work with results as individual as the people who experience it. In all cases it relaxes and allows space for the body to heal itself naturally unlike any other modality I have ever experienced.
I welcome your curiosity to explore what Bowen can do for you and look forward to helping you take the next step in your health and wellbeing.
