Wholism – the ability to address the entire being, not just simply, say, a bad knee – is the hallmark of Bowenwork and what sets it
apart from other manual therapies. Major systems of the body can be addressed with Bowenwork – for example, respiratory, digestive, reproductive, lymphatic – leading to a substantial increase in quality of life. And your knee feels better? Great!

Bowenwork is deceptively simple to learn, yet satisfyingly long to master: The more you live the work, the more nuanced it becomes.

Nancy brings a multi-sensory approach to her teaching – especially the sixth sense of intuition; the seventh, common sense; and the eighth, a sense of humor. Honest and fair, she is as supportive of the layperson as she is exacting of the professional; she brings intellectual rigor to a relaxed and flexible classroom experience. An anatomical geek and a good-natured task-master, Nancy focuses on quality of touch to best exploit the fascial system of the body.

Nancy, along with colleague Karin Twohig, is co-creator of and co-trainer for American Bowen Academy’s Instructor Training Program; and she teaches throughout the US and at international conferences.
