Lauren Wadsworth offers Introductory Bowen work class, open to Community

The class, which will run from 10 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. including a half-hour lunch break on Jan. 18, is a learning opportunity appropriate for anyone in the community interested in helping improve their own health or the health of their family and friends and those who simply interested in learning about this extraordinary therapeutic modality.

The fee for the class is $95, which includes a handbook on Bowenwork techniques taught in the class. Class size is limited, so, in order to register or get more information, call Lauren Wadsworth at 304-667-2195.

The class will focus on key elements of Bowenwork, a remarkably effective, gentle, non-invasive touch therapy that stimulates the body’s ability to heal itself. Bowenwork is extraordinary in part because it can practiced through clothing, yet still addresses a wide range of issues, from chronic pain and headaches to digestive, immune, hormonal and respiratory challenges.Bowenwork is safe and appropriate for all, from infants to the elderly to elite athletes and is deeply relaxing, yet often energizing as well. In the four-hour class, students will learn to apply key Bowenwork techniques that can help to alleviate breathing difficulties; ease heartburn, acid reflux and other gastrointestinal complaints; relieve neck, back or knee pain or tension; and address injuries.

Lauren Wadsworth, a massage and movement therapist who has been in private practice since 1980, and has worked in Lewisburg since 1989, got her professional Bowen work certification in 2010. Since learning of the therapy, and experiencing the wide range of benefits it can provide, she has worked to teach others more about the fascinating technique. She continues to be impressed with the elegance and effectiveness of this therapy, and takes great pleasure in sharing it with her clients and students.
