Master Registered Bowenwork Specialist

Certified MSTR Specialist
Nancy has been a Health Care Provider since 1975. First in Dentistry; then a Women’s Health Care Educator/Advocate; finally directing the Iowa City Free Medical Clinic.
Recovery from an accident in 1980 led her to seek more natural ways of healing, introducing her to the benefits of Chiropractic, Massage, Nutrition, Yoga and Meditation. These experiences ignited her desire to practice natural health care. In 1985 she graduated from New Mexico School of Natural Therapeutics with a degree as a Natural Therapeutic Specialist. Nancy’s passion to experience and study many soft tissue therapy techniques include Cranial/Sacral with the Upledger Institute in 1986; Trager; Bonnie Prudden Myotherapy; Travell Trigger Point; Tom Meyers Anatomy Trains, neuromuscular and myofascial techniques.
Bowenwork found Nancy in 2004. Her swift recovery with a Frozen Shoulder that had been a problem for two years led her to study Bowenwork. Nothing she had studied or received in the past had enabled healing this profound! Studying Bowenwork has shifted her paradigms of natural healing and grounded her in a deeper wholistic understanding of the physiology of the body’s natural capacity to heal and live in balance.
Upon completing her international testing with Bowen Academy of Australia and becoming a Registered Bowenwork Therapist, Bowenwork Health Center Marysville opened in June 2005, followed by the Mount Vernon office in 2007. Specializing in the Bowenwork technique, Nancy is committed to educate people of the benefits of natural health care; assisting their exploration of greater body awareness and empowering people to live life with natural ease and vitality!
