MSTR® scar work - R3280


An exciting workshop covering this amazing pilot of our autonomic nervous system. 
The vagus nerve is our main parasympathetic nerve. If the Vagus nerve is supressed (low vagal tone) as part of a stress response, our bodies will struggle on ALL levels.
If the body is in stress-mode it can't heal, and it will be more difficult for your treatment to "stick".
​What we will look at:
  • What is the Vagus nerve?
  • How does it fit into our lives?
  • How does it fit into our practice?
  • The Polyvagal Theory
  • Assessing the Vagus nerve and vagal tone.
  • Hands-on work to improve vagal tone.
  • Incorporating movement and breathing into increasing and supporting vagal tone.
  • Teach your clients ways to improve their health and wellbeing. 
This workshop is open to all qualified bodyworkers.



This workshop took 2020 by storm! 
Bowen therapists all over the world have been attending this workshop (and still do) due to the online version forced upon us by Covid. The hands-on live workshops have been running full whenever we've been able to in between lockdowns! 
Our lymphatic system is not just a waste clearing system.
  • It is the highway of our immune response.
  • It is involved in the process of digestion.
  • It helps regulate heart rate and blood pressure.
  • When struggling it will affect the nervous system to the point where it will create unexplained aches and pains.
  • It is responsible for brain health and now linked to neurological diseases such as Parkinson's and Alzheimer's.
The list goes on...
Bowen is the perfect technique for getting the most out of this amazing system and getting the body firing on all cylinders.
This is a stand-alone technique and a remarkable one at that.
Saying that, it fits in perfectly with Bowen.
Scars are at the top of the list for central nervous system interference. This fact can be tested and demonstrated in the classroom and clinic. 
Regardless of the age of the scar, it can cause an interruption in the nervous system at any point in time for no apparent reason. This leads to interference with muscle function and therefore movement patterns and general movement, ultimately leading to possible pain and discomfort. 
In my clinic I use MSTR® scar work to reset "faulty" neural receptors affecting by scarring - surgical or other. 
  • Scars can create limited range of movement due to tissue trauma
  • Interfere with blood flow
  • interfere with lymphatic flow
Another plus point is that the scar work will very possibly change the "look" of the scar, helping people to feel more confident, and could also lead to a relief in the emotional attachment linked to the original related trauma.
