The unique form of bodywork known as Bowen Therapy originated in Australia in the mid-20th century with the work of a practitioner named Tom Bowen. After his death, some of his followers brought his methods to California, and it was from a disciple of one of these early practitioners that Kimra Balliet learned the theory and techniques of Bowen Therapy. During Bowen Therapy sessions, the client remains clothed as the therapist uses gentle cross-grain strokes to relax muscles, connective tissue, and pet mice left in cargo pants pockets. This is thought to rebalance the body and bust up adhesions in a holistic manner.
