Bowen Therapist and teacher

Jenny Petridis | Somatic practitioner nd teacher.


Hi! Thank you being here. I have been a somatic therapist, working directly with the soft tissues since 2005. Over the years I qualified in Remedial Massage, reflexology and the Bowen technique.

My experience starts in Melbourne, Australia and eventually spanned across 3 different continents where. worked independently in both offering sessions and at speaking congresses.

My healing approach is a melting pot of my own interpretation of the Bowen tehcnique, sound healing, breathwork, heart-brain coherence, positive-mirroring, mindful movement and viaualisation – which together (thought not always withing one session!) create a physical and spiritual experience for self-healing.

I am updating this site as I write this to reflect my current journey with the healing arts as I define my work and approach in greater depth for you.

The future is promising where I will be teaching my integrated somatic techniques in workshops around the world. Watch this space!

"My session with Jenny was transformative! It was the first time I had experienced Bowen therapy so I had no expectations, however I knew I was in good hands because Jenny has a wealth of knowledge and experience. I found her adept at reading my body and treating accordingly. For years, my pelvis had been slightly skewed, which Jenny picked up on straightaway."
"Without question, there is something special and magical about Jenny. Of course she has lots of body knowledge, and has really mastered her technique, with it's astonishing soft touch, firm manipulations, and then magical pauses. During those pauses, the other side of her work, call it affective or spiritual, has its effects. Along with all the positive emanations during the massage itself, in the pauses, Jenny's 'healing wilfulness' is able work its wonders".
"To know Bowen Therapy through Jenny Petridis's hands was, for me, an auspicious and promising beginning. With her hands and fingers that, not only touched but observed and listened to my skin and muscles, I could feel a huge sensation of freedom in my whole body. Each movement was preceded by explanations and followed by her caring. Bowen Therapy is really impressive! With small and few movements we can realize so many big changes in our body, and create a possibility to move with more grace and awareness."
