Brain Mapping and the Bowen Technique
by Alexia Monroe , Bowenwork Instructor
I became inspired to explore brain mapping and its connection to the Bowen Technique through V.S. Ramachandran’s book, Phantoms in the Brain. Dr. Ramachandran explores the fascinating research into different centers of the brain responsible for our “body image”.
The research began in the 1940′s, during brain surgery performed by Dr. Wilder Penfield. Brain surgery is often done on fully conscious patients, because the brain contains no pain receptors.
