The Bowen Technique is a soft tissue remedial therapy which consists of a series of gentle rolling moves over muscles, ligaments, tendons and fascia, with frequent pauses between moves giving the body time to benefit.
A Bowen treatment may include the body as a whole, or a specific problem can be targeted.
Bowen is very gentle, making it a suitable therapy for people of all ages, from the newly-born to the elderly.
There is no attempt within a Bowen treatment to force the body to change. Rather, through releasing stress at a very deep level, via its deep, calming effect on the Autonomic Nervous System, Bowen encourages and enables the body to heal itself.
A sense of well-being can be achieved, helping relax the person and remove every day stress and anxiety, and helping the recipient function at their optimum.
In September 2016 I trained in Fascia Bowen, based on the work of Howard Plummer.
The moves of Fascia Bowen can be incorporated into a normal Bowen treatment, or used on their own, depending on the needs of clients.
They are even lighter - a feather-weight touch, suitable for children, the elderly, and those with chronic, long-term conditions, for example Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue, autoimmune conditions.
Might Bowen Help YOU?
Bowen does not aim to treat specific conditions in any way, but seeks to work on the person as a whole. This video provides a good, short introduction of what to expect in a Bowen treatment.
Please do phone to discuss your health needs, whether acute or chronic in origin.
Should you be willing to provide feedback on your experience of Bowen with me, please could you follow this link to complete a short questionnaire.

Usui Reiki - Reiki is a Japanese word meaning 'Universal Life Energy' - is a technique for working with energy, developed by Mikao Usui in the early 20th century, rooted in Tendai Buddhism and Shintoism. It is a tradition open to any belief system, or none.
Originally, Reiki was a system for self-healing, self-development and spiritual development.
It is now known primarily as a complementary therapy for treating other people.
The practitioner's hands may be placed on or off the body during the treatment, and may also be received at a distance.
Benefits may include deep relaxation and bring about a calm peaceful sense of well-being.
As well as offering Reiki treatments, as a Reiki Master-Teacher I will sometimes incorporate Reiju empowerments into your treatment where appropriate, enabling you to further work on yourself in between treatments. This will always be discussed with you beforehand.
Reiki Drum combines a normal treatment with the ancient practice of drumming to bring about a state of deep relaxation.
Drumming has been shown to have powerful, beneficial physiological effects on the body.
Celtic Reiki forms a synthesis between Usui Reiki and Celtic philosophy and practice. As with the practice of Reiki developed by Usui, it is a vibrational, energy based form of treatment.
As a treatment form, it includes a wide range of Essences, including those from Trees & Crystals. Ongoing mentoring can also be offered.
FLOWER ESSENCES & SPIRITUAL CARE
Flower Essences can help to bring a deeper level of emotional and physical health, and I have found them to be powerful catalysts in combating negativity and restoring energy and positivity in life.
I do not carry a specific range, but seek to source the appropriate remedy for each client. This can then be ordered from Healthlines in Cumbria, or other suppliers, depending on the range recommended.
Celtic Reiki includes working with plants and trees, and can be a powerful way of experiencing these essences.
I can also make up a bottle for you with the essences worked with during a Celtic Reiki treatment.
Spiritual Care can help enhance your own spiritual awareness, identifying your spiritual needs in your own unique journey towards wholeness.
Although encompassing traditional counselling skills, this is not a substitute for professional counselling or psychotherapy.
Celtic Reiki combines working with Essences and Spiritual Care & Mentoring.
For a qualified counsellor or psychotherapist, please look for someone accredited with professional organisations such as the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
