Testimonials from Clients:
I had very intense low back pain and sciatica when I first saw you for help. After an hour of receiving Bowen therapy from you, I was feeling much better, with the pain and spasm having subsided greatly.
You gave me some exercises to do daily to keep my hamstring muscles loose and told me that it would take four to seven days for my back to totally return to its normal self. I had some good days and bad for the next few as my body readjusted. However, just as you had said, by day number seven I was as good as new and very, very grateful. Thank you so much!
Obviously, I am very impressed with the Bowen technique. Its philosophy of using the body's innate healing mechanisms to heal itself, rather than trying to "force" healing from the outside (which may or may not be what the body wants to do and which, unfortunately, comprises much of Western medicine)makes genuine sense to me. I intend to investigate it further. Brian J. Ellinoy, Pharm.D.
What Students Have Said:
"The seminar on the island of Kauai in the Hawaiian Islands, was a great way to get away from the routine of home, and at the same time, to have my family with me, while continuing my education. The accommodations were very comfortable, were conveniently located to beaches and restaurants, and, since the housing was at the same location as the workshop, they were convenient for workshop participation, as well. I felt as though I had had a very relaxing mini vacation with my family, and at the same time, learned a new technique that I will be able to use in my office on Monday morning."
I have attended 6 modules of Bowenwork with Karin Twohig of the Bowenwork School of Carmel, California, both at her center in Carmel and also in Hawaii.
Her teaching style and dedication to my learning experience has impressed me greatly, and I am not alone. Almost every student in my class has continued on with all of the modules and no one has been left behind due to Karin’s constant support, flexibility and caring style. Some returning students from other classes have commented that they learned so much more about the technique in Karin’s class than in any other they had attended and felt much more confident about their abilities. Even a long time graduate from another class said that she now really understood a lot more about what she was doing since attending a refresher course with Karin.
There is a lot to learn and it seems easy in her classes. There is a tremendous amount of hands-on learning right from the start, both giving and receiving the Bowenwork. It seems that this keeps the students excited and interested as well as being able to actually get to “feel” what the work is all about from different hands and on different bodies.
Karin creates a low-pressure environment while maintaining a fully educational experience where you leave having learned more than you thought. She is adamant about the form and sticks with you ‘til you get it. Karin is fully dedicated to the original Bowen technique as taught by Tom Bowen and does not let you slide by because she is going to make sure that if you want to become a certified Bowen Practitioner, you will.
