How I can help you
Bowen Therapy Bowen therapy is a soft tissue remedial therapy that involves the therapist using fingers or thumbs to move over muscle, ligament, tendon and fascia in various parts of the body. This therapy can be effective to help relieve everyday stresses and revitalise the whole person. Each Bowen therapy session varies according to the particular problems of the client. By focusing on the lower and mid back and legs, the upper back, shoulders and the neck, a sense of wellbeing can be achieved, helping relaxation, aiding sleep – helping to remove everyday stress and anxiety that can make us feel under-par or prevent us functioning at our optimum. Choosing a practitioner It is important to choose a qualified Bowen therapist who has undertaken all the necessary training to understand the theory and practice of Bowen therapy. You can check whether a Bowen therapist is registered with the Complementary & Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC) by searching the register at www.cnhc.org.uk. By choosing Bowen therapists registered with the CNHC you can be confident that they are properly trained, qualified and insured.
Sharon Wheeler's ScarWorkTM
Using light, massage-like stroking, along with other more specialised techniques, Scar Work is a non-invasive, highly relaxing therapy.
Developed by Sharon Wheeler in the USA, Scar Work is now spreading quickly across the UK. When healthy, the fascia provides a connection and flow between all areas of the body, a sort of consciousness, with a potential pressure of 2000 lbs per square inch so, if damaged, can pull joints and bones out of alignment. This may be addressed by working on the area around the scars, allowing the body to restore flexibility with continuity of connection and flow.
Scar Work can be used on all scars: Caesarean, hysterectomy, mastectomy, battle wounds, accident, and surgical. Sometimes scars are not visible but pull from under the skin, causing distortion and pain.
This work can result in an emotional outlet that is perfectly natural and healthy. A supportive environment is absolutely essential at this point, and this is provided with total confidentiality ensured in a positive, caring way.
Your body responds to massage in two ways:
The physical benefits -
Reducing muscle stiffness, increasing joint mobility, improving lymphatic flow.
The psychological benefits -
De-stressing, relaxation, and increased well-being.
