Is a holistic approach to pain relief and healing. Through specific soft tissue or fascial release and integration techniques, it stimulates specific receptors that enable the body itself to correct dysfunctions and restore homeostasis (balance) on a holistic level.

Brief History

Bowen Therapy was developed by Tom Bowen (1916-1982), who discovered that making small and gentle movements on strategic points in the body generated an integrated healing response. He recognized an apparent common causal relationship in many seemingly unrelated painful conditions, particularly musculoskeletal but including neurological and other health problems. He identified this causal link or relationship as being the soft tissue or fascia that envelops the whole body from head to toe.

After years of clinical work he developed a unique set of specific moves associated with different sequences and timing intervals. The moves provided fascial release and integration stimulating a variety of anatomical or physiological responses frequently resulting in long term and often immediate resolution of the majority of presenting problems and pain conditions.

In 1975 the government instituted Webb Committee of Inquiry into Chiropractic, Osteopathy and Naturopathy in Australia reviewed Tom Bowen’s work. They found he was seeing some 13,000 people a year and achieving a success rate in his practice of over 80% of presenting conditions.

The Benefits

The principal benefit of Bowen Therapy is the often rapid and long term or permanent remission from pain, reduced stress, greater mobility and improved physical and emotional quality and enjoyment of life.

Additional benefits can include increased energy, improvement in the immune system, re-balancing of the body, improved circulation, lymphatic drainage and detoxification.

Further and important benefits of Bowen Therapy are that it has few contra indications. It is very gentle, relaxing and non-invasive involving no manipulation, and is therefore ideal for everyone including children and the aged. And it does not cost the earth! – Concessions apply for those with low income.

Reiki

The ancient art of natural healing, a gentle technique which channels healing energy from the Universe “Life force energy”. It is not connected to any religion or cult, it is not intrusive. Reiki cannot claim to replace other forms of treatment but to compliment them.

When receiving Reiki, you may be aware of the energy coming from the hands of the practitioner, it may be felt as heat or cold, some may experience a feeling of deep relaxation which can assist stress and pain to drain away. It dissolves energy blocks, can provide clarity & reduce stress which allows physical ailments a better chance at recovery.

Reiki works on many energy levels – physical, in your aura etc. it is a holistic healer- restoring the natural balance of the body.

Reiki is a ‘self healing’ energy. Reiki channels are not and should not describe themselves as ‘Healers’. Practitioners believe they are channelling people’s ability to heal themselves.
