It was persistent and continuing back pain that led me to discover the unique healing modality that is Bowen Therapy.
My strong belief in the profound impacts that Bowen Therapy can have on long term illness and injuries led me to study and practice the Technique.
I am a strong believer of living a healthy, balanced and sustainable lifestyle.
Prior to becoming a Bowen Practitioner, I worked in the Environmental Industry, restoring remnant native vegetation in bushland settings.
Restoring and rebalancing the natural order of things has become a passion, whether it’s rehabilitating our local environment or assisting someone to realign and rebalance their own body and improve their health and well being.
OPEN: Tuesday and Thursday 9AM-7PM
What is Bowen Therapy?
Bowen is a holistic remedial body technique that works on the soft connective tissue (fascia) of the body. Bowen therapy can be used to treat musculoskeletal or related neurological problems including acute sports injuries and chronic or organic conditions. It is gentle and relaxing and does not use forceful manipulation.
Bowen therapy is performed on the superficial and deep fascia. The fascia, or soft tissue, is the part of the connective tissue that envelops, separates and influences every organ and tissue in the body.
The Bowen technique is safe to use on anyone, from newborns to the elderly and for any musculoskeletal or related neuromuscular complaint. It is a holistic treatment that treats the whole person and aims to treat the cause of problems, rather than the symptoms.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
A Bowen treatment consists of sequences of small moves at varying pressures, each at a specific site on the body. The treatment is pleasant – therapists use light, cross-fibre manoeuvres of muscle, tendon or ligament with no forceful manipulation.
A treatment will typically last between 30 minutes and one hour. It can be provided through a layer of light clothing, although you may be asked to remove heavy or thick garments. During this time, the therapist may leave the room for periods of two to five minutes at a time. This allows time for your body to respond to the treatment and for the necessary changes to occur in your body before commencing the next sequence of moves.
