To relieve tension, a medieval archer would lie on the ground, shoot straight into the air, and hope the descending arrow would strike his heart's fabled "relaxation release valve." Achieve steady-handed and targeted relief with today’s deal: for $35, you get one Bowenwork session (a $75 value) at The Body Clinic in Walnut Creek. This Groupon also gets returning clients $10 off each subsequent session in a series of treatments; three to five sessions are required in most situations.
Bowenwork is a soft-tissue technique that utilizes firm pressure to reduce inflammation, decrease tension, and increase blood flow. The treatment is appropriate for people of all ages, from newborn babies to senile pharaohs. At The Body Clinic, Bowen practitioner Suzette Lake mends muscles and helps her clients achieve a higher quality of life through 90-minute sessions. The appointment begins with a little paperwork before clients are asked to remove shoes, glasses, stow-away cockleburs, and jewelry. Lying fully clothed on a massage table, patients will encounter Suzette’s experienced hands as they smoothly traverse muscles, tendons, and nerves in an effort to halt the assembly lines of the body’s stress factory. Throughout the session, 2- to 10-minute massage-less intervals will occur, giving patients some time to contemplate the healing hand movements.
Originally developed by Tom Bowen, a self-described osteopath, Bowenwork is always painless and doesn’t leave the tessellated stretch marks of other treatments, such as strategically placed mousetraps. The Body Clinic recommends wearing loose-fitting apparel, and appointments are required. Call to schedule your first session.
New clients only. Length of treatment series is determined on an individual basis. This deal is not valid for those 15 years old or younger.
