Bowen Therapy

Bowen Therapy (also known as The Bowen Technique) is a drug free, non-intrusive hands-on remedial therapy which can be administered through light clothing, with the client sitting, standing or lying. Using very gentle pressure, the therapist places thumbs and fingers on precise points of the body to perform unique rolling-type moves which stimulate the muscles and soft tissue of the body. There is no manipulation or adjustment of hard tissue and no force is used. The experience is gentle, subtle and relaxing.

It is believed that the Bowen Therapy prompts the body to reset, repair and balance itself.  Clients report the experience of pain relief, improvement of function and recovery of energy.

Bowen has a remarkable record of success with clients affected by an astonishingly wide range of problems – often when nothing else has helped.  It helps the body’s system rebalance and promotes healing.  Bowen is suitable for men, women and children of all ages.

Common presentations for treatment include (but are not limited to):

  • Most commonly lower back pain
  • Shoulder pain and restriction
  • Hip Issues
  • Knee problems
  • Neck issues
  • Migraine and headaches
  • Sleep issues
  • Hayfever and chronic sinus congestion

Both acute (short term) and chronic (longer term) problems are addressed.  Usually acute issues can be resolved within 1-2 sessions, whereas longer term complaints may take longer (3-6 sessions), with some people requiring regular ‘maintenance’ sessions.

You will usually know within 3 appointments if Bowen can help you.

Chiropractors are neuromuscular-skeletal specialists and as such, assess, diagnose and treat conditions of the joints, muscles and nervous system. The majority of conditions are the result of mechanical stresses applied to the body through normal activities of daily living, poor posture and progressive wear and tear as the body naturally ages.

Homeopathy is a complete system of natural medicine, treating the person as a whole, with the focus of treatment on the person and how they are expressing their symptoms, rather than on the specific disease or complaint itself. Homeopathy is a natural, safe, gentle and effective system of medicine that can be used to treat everyone including babies, children, pregnant women and the elderly.  Homeopathic medicines, known as remedies, help to stimulate the body’s own natural healing mechanism, and are given based on the persons’ unique individual needs. Remedies are safe, non-toxic, rarely produce unwanted effects, can be used alongside other treatments, and will not interfere with conventional medications.

Homeopathy is for you…

  • If you want to be treated as a unique and special individual
  • If other forms of treatment haven’t helped
  • If you suffer from a recurring or chronic condition which isn’t resolving from repeated courses of medication
  • If you are looking for health enhancing methods of preventing disease and creating greater vitality
  • If you want to feel more balanced physically, mentally and emotionally
  • If you want to be able to tell your own story

Facial Reflexology, Pamper Treatment – a client testimonial
This was 90 minutes of pure bliss in a wonderful environment. It was hard not to fall asleep but I wanted to remain awake so that I didn’t miss anything! Rebecca has very skilled hands and it was easy to succumb to these and the lovely aromas and relaxing sensations. My treatment was before a wedding and I recommend this for that purpose or similar, or even as a self-indulgent treat or present for someone special.

Solution-Focused Hypnotherapy

The practice of Hypnotherapy is based in neuroscience and can help individuals change the neural pathways in their brain to alter their habits and find healthier solutions.  Unlike traditional talk therapy, you are not asked to talk about your past and come to terms with it.

You cannot change your past and so you fill focus on what you can change—your future, what your goals have, how you want your future to be, what you would like to be doing rather than what you don’t want to be doing—and then you will gradually move toward that future, one small step at a time.  Sessions are always positive and supportive.

Hypnotherapy is not a long-term therapy.  We generally work fast, and you can often achieve your goals in months rather than years.

Hypnotherapy may assist with various conditions:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Anger management
  • OCD
  • Phobias
  • Smoking
  • Weight management
  • Interviews
  • Driving tests
  • Sports Performance
  • Grief
  • Supporting fertility
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Eating disorders
  • Self-harming
  • Performance anxiety
  • Pain management
  • Stress
  • Addictions
  • Exam worries
  • Insomnia
  • and more

Each session is a combination of talk therapy and trance.  The focus is on what you want your future to look like and how you can get there, one small step at a time, and does not include talking about your past.  Trance is very normal, as you will discover.  We ‘zone out’ or move to a trance state, when driving, watching television, or sitting in a boring meeting!

You, as an individual, have the answers to all your own questions within yourself about the best way forward and the Hypnotherapist will help you find those answers within yourself.  You are always in control and cannot be made to anything you do not want to do.  The Hypnotherapist cannot and will not make you cluck like a chicken!!

Hypnotherapy is suitable for all ages, including children (as young as 8 years old).
