Davis Bowen Therapy

Gabriele Streuer is a NST Bowen Therapist in Davis, California

NST stands for: Neuro- Structural Integration Technique. It was developed by Michael Nixon-Levy out of the work of Tom Bowen, an Osteopath, and other modalities. It is now widely recognized in Europe, the US and Australia. It aims at integrating the structure of the body by stimulating the nervous system, i.e. the neuro-muscular system through a sequence of specialized rolling moves across selected soft tissues throughout the lumbar, thoracic and cervical regions of the body and also upper and lower extremities.

Bowen Therapy is a holistic form of structural bodywork that provides an overall dynamic body balance and integrated body response. Bowen therapy stimulates the body's own innate healing mechanisms to bring about muscular and skeletal change, resulting in reduction of pain, increase in strength, flexibility and vitality. Since Bowen Therapy addresses the body as a whole unit, the cause of problems rather than just the presenting symptoms, it embraces the physical, chemical, emotional and mental aspects of each person receiving a treatment. Application of the technique can be performed through clothing or directly on the skin. The pressure applied is deemed to be lighter than other forms of comparable therapies, thus making it suitable for most clinical conditions and also for acute conditions, the aged and frail.

Typically treatments are 30-50 minutes in duration and generally 2-3 sessions are required for resolution of common disorders

This work can be performed without the need of disrobing and is generally a very gently and relaxing form of therapy. It has been very effective in a number of different applications:

  • Spinal conditions
  • Cranial conditions
  • Headaches including migraines
  • Neck conditions including whiplash
  • Back conditions including pelvic, lumbar and thoracic
  • Shoulder, elbow, wrist and hand conditions
  • Leg, knee, ankle and foot conditions
  • Digestive and intestinal conditions
  • Asthma and other respiratory conditions
  • Arthritis and joint conditions
  • Menstrual, fertility and menopausal conditions
  • Accident injuries
  • Sports injuries
  • Acute and chronic fatigue
  • Stress conditions and emotional depression

2010-01-26 09:51:20   Gabi has a wonderful, almost magical, healing touch, provided in a safe and comforting environment. I can't say that I understand how the Bowen approach produces its therapeutic effect, but after experiencing Gabi's work, I am a confirmed believer. —Crilly

2013-05-03 22:44:01   I had my first session with Gabi today and left feeling wonderful! I arrived with aching, twisted hips and left feeling flexible and free. Her touch is confident and intuitive, her personality friendly and welcoming, and her compassion and caring are obvious. I was amazed at the effectiveness of the seemingly-subtle Bowen method. Thank you, Gabi! —Laurie
