Nancy Bittinger – Nancy is the owner of Carlisle Bowen Works and has been helping people heal from pain for over 25 years. Since her first day in massage school Nancy has spent her career learning (possibly obsessing) about how to help people rid their bodies of pain. Nancy understands the emotional and mental toll that pain creates and how it can diminish person’s quality of life. She will never tire of seeing a person’s reaction the first time they realize they can move, or stand, or sit, or twist, or touch the top of their head without pain.

Nancy discovered Bowen Therapy in 2011 and although she uses many modalities in her practice, her business is named for the therapy that changed the way she looks at the human body, and how she thinks about healing. She will forever be grateful to Tom Bowen for the gift of this therapy that he has shared with the world.
