Bowen therapy – isn’t just for us adults!

children and baby therapy

So quite often clients are surprised about how many children they see come to the clinic. Bowen therapy isn’t just for us adults you know!

A baby/child Bowen treatment is a very gentle experience. Treatment can be on the couch, a chair, parent’s lap or even playing with toys on the floor and generally take around 15-20 minutes.

However especially for children who have had to spend a lot of time at the Doctors or in hospital, coming into a clinic environment can often be a daunting prospect so when the weather allows sessions often take place outside feeding my chickens or going to see Annie the Donkey or Teddy the Polish shire horse!Continue reading

Sciatica – a right pain in the ……!

Sciatica and Bowen Therapy

Does your arthritis mean you say “I can’t do that anymore?”

therapy for Arthritis

Many of my clients come to the clinic looking for relief from their symptoms of arthritis. Is Bowen going to ‘magic away’ their arthritis? Of course not! But what it is very good at doing in my experience, is improving flexibility and range of movement, lowering pain levels and generally giving a better quality of life.

Does your arthritis mean that you are you spending your life saying “I can’t do that anymore?” That is what this client used to say prior to discovering Bowen and now no longer feels like a spectator in life!Continue reading

So it’s that time of year again when we all start thinking of ways of improving our lives and especially our health.

Many of us decide that this is the time of the year to start taking more exercise, cut down on alcohol and give up smoking. All of which are great steps towards a healthier lifestyle, but how many of us consider trying to find a solution for existing health or injury worries?

Why not make having regular Bowen therapy your New Year resolution? Have you been putting up with that niggling knee pain or weekly migraines for as long as you can remember? Fed up not being able to eat certain foods for fear of your IBS? Or do you just want 2015 to be the year that you became free of aches and pains? If so, why not try Bowen therapy?Continue reading
