CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19) INFECTION
IMPORTANT UPDATE - FRIDAY 22 MAY 2020
The Government has stated that we can commence hands on treatment once more from 7 July. - please note this is the very earliest that I shall open my Clinic. Only when I feel it is safe for you - and me to work together will I open my doors once more. I am now very busy getting my Therapy room ready. It has been thoroughly cleaned and when you come next time there will be some differences. I will not be using towels on the couch - just paper roll which is disposed of after each Client. The couch, door handles and floor will be sanitised inbetween each Client which means I will see less Clients in a day, but it is necessary to keep us all safe. I really can't wait to see all my lovely Clients again - and to meet new ones! I will keep you updated on here with any news and but please also check on my social media feeds - Instagram @hilarystherapies and facebook.com/hilarystherapies. Thank you for being so patient
Wednesday 18 March 2020
It is with a heavy heart that I am closing my clinics at Beck Row & Burwellness until further notice. I had hoped to remain open to treat those wishing to attend but having read through the government's full recommendation it has become clear that to protect my Clients and myself I have no option but to close.
This will be monitored and as soon as I possibly can I will re-open.
I would like to thank each and every one of my Clients for their support to date.
Bowen Therapy is an important treatment for your well-being and enhances the immune system. It can help with stress and anxiety enabling you to feel less fear, panic & stress all of which have an impact upon our immune system. Keep your body in its 'best health' - sleep well, eat nourishing plant food, hand wash more, avoid watching too many news reports and enjoy the outdoors by going for your one walk / exercise or by being in your garden if you're lucky enough to have one.
Gut Health as ever is very important to your overall health - to help boost your immune system try the following:-
* Eat more fruit and vegetables - particularly dark berries and dark green leafy veg
* Reduce or eliminate your sugar intake (read all labels as often sugar is hidden)
* Eat fermented foods (great for increasing the good bacteria in the gut)
* Reduce starchy carbs such as bread and pasta
* Rest well
* Supplement your diet (I have many supplements which can help you improve your overall health and boost your immune system)
* Do what you can to reduce your own stress levels
Should you wish to book an appointment to discuss your own gut health please get in touch on the details at the bottom of this email - I am conducting all appointments by telephone or online until the lockdown has been lifted.
If you are struggling with your mental health - please pick up the phone and talk to someone. I am more than happy to chat to anyone who feels they can benefit from this - my contact details are readily available on this website.
Please take great care of yourselves and each other during this time.
Please stay safe, stay at home and be kind.
My name is Hilary Gurner and I qualified with the College of Bowen Studies in September 2018 as a Bowen Therapist. Bowen Therapy is a light touch physical therapy relatively unknown in the UK, although more people are experiencing it now. I am also a Reiki 2 Practitioner and qualified with 2nd degree in September 2019. I run two Clinics - one from Beck Row in Suffolk and another one from Burwell in Cambridgeshire where I treat Clients every Thursday. If you would like to book an appointment at either Clinic, please click here.
I also coach many Clients who wish to improve their gut health with private consultations, a lifestyle analysis - which can be completed easily over the telephone - to see which of the body systems is below par, together with nutrition advice and high quality supplements designed for optimal health. These include a '21 Day Gut Microbiome Reset' programme - designed to help re-balance the microbiome. For many people certain issues are acerbated by the 'gut being out of balance' and you can read more on this on my other pages - Gut Health and also my Blog on '21 day Gut Reset' programme page for my personal 'blog' on the programme. This is a 21 day programme I did myself in April / May 2019 and repeated in September 2019 and my health has massively improved because of it.
I also offer the opportunity to purchase a full scientific detailed 190 page DNA report which not only details your genetic make-up, but also details what foods are good for you, which foods you should avoid as well as whether you are vitamin or other mineral deficient, such as whether you would benefit from Omega 3's in your diet - you may think this is obvious, but no broccoli is not recommended for everyone! For anyone who wishes to lose weight or improve their symptoms this is proving to be invaluable information as you can tailor your nutrition to your specific genetic make up.
I have many Clients travelling to me for The Bowen Technique from Bury St Edmunds, Brandon, Cambridge, Newmarket, Thetford, Mildenhall and Ely. Successful treatments recently include improving symptoms of pain - particularly back pain, headaches, sciatica and fibromyalgia pain. I also see people with hay fever / asthma, anxiety & stress related disorders. Shoulder, hip & knee pain also usually respond well to Bowen Therapy.

Leaky Gut Syndrome
Have you heard about leaky gut?
What is Leaky Gut Syndrome?
Do I have it and if so, what can I do about it?
Leaky gut syndrome is a digestive condition that affects the lining of the intestines (the gut). The wall of the intestines is only one cell thick and should house tight junctions to allow toxins to pass through the gut and out of the body. In leaky gut syndrome gaps appear in the intestinal walls allowing bacteria and other toxins to pass directly into the bloodstream. Once these toxins are in the bloodstream they are quickly passed all around the body and can literally make you feel quite unwell....finish reading
Gut 'microbiome' Health
Click here to read about Gut Health programmes
"70% of the body's immune system is located in your gut ie. the gut-associated lymphoid tissue (GALT). This system is supported by your gut microbiome. Therefore it is no surprise that if your gut is 'out of balance' with bacteria then your immune system could well be compromised too! Click here to read more
Excessive consumption of sugar and link to cancer
Sugar is THE bad guy! According to Jenny Phillips, a biochemist, nutritionist, type 4 cancer survivor & author of 'Eat 2 Outsmart Cancer: "all carbohydrate whether from chocolate, buns, carrots, apples or toast - is broken down into glucose (sugar) which is transported in your bloodstream and used by your cells to provide energy. Cancer cells love sugar. Click here to read more
BOWEN THERAPY SUITABLE FOR CHILDREN!
Children can really benefit from Bowen Therapy. Often they respond quickly and sessions can take place anywhere a child and his/her parents feel comfortable. Positive responses have been achieved for Autism, ADHD, behavioural problems and various other issues. I offer Bowen Therapy for children - from babies through to teenagers, please contact me for more information. Click here for a quick video on Bowen for Children. I am happy to treat children from all ages from birth to adolescent.
Stress & Anxiety
Suffering from stress, anxiety or related conditions / symptoms - Click here to visit my Blog page for a snippet of information on peptic ulcers. If you haven’t tried Bowen Therapy why not give it a go. Stress as a short term response is very helpful, but many of us have had stress over long periods of time and this most definitely is not good for us. The Bowen Technique can help the body to relax and let go of stresses that have been held over a long period of time.
My Therapy Room
I have a very calm, peaceful & relaxing therapy room where you can enjoy your treatment and let the Bowen Technique do it's work. My Clinic is located in the Suffolk village of Beck Row - close to Mildenhall, which is easily accessible from Cambridge, Ipswich, Bury St Edmunds, Newmarket, Thetford, Ely, Downham Market & Kings Lynn via the main routes on the A11, A14 and A10.
Please telephone me on 07984 309744 or 01638 718241 and leave a message if I don't answer - I will call you straight back once I am free.
