What is Bowen?

The Bowen Technique is a gentle, remedial hands on – hands off therapy that is applied using a series of small moves on the skin, working on the fascia (connective tissue) just below the surface of the skin. The fingers and thumbs are used on precise points of the body to perform ‘Bowen moves’ which are a rolling-type move. This stimulates the muscles and soft tissue of the body sending a signal up to the brain. During the treatment the Client will be left alone in the therapy room for a few minutes at a time. This ‘pause in treatment’ allows the body to respond to the moves already applied.

These pauses in treatment allow the brain to reset, repair, heal and balance itself providing an effective way to deal with the body’s pains – both physical and emotional. I prefer to work directly on the skin, but the moves can be given through light clothing such as t-shirt and loose trousers (absolutely no jeans, tight clothing or lycra)! You will be covered with towels whilst on the therapy couch with only the part of the body being worked on exposed.

It is recommended to have a series of three or four treatments initially with most people responding within this time before a break can be taken. Many Clients find it beneficial to have ‘top-up’ or ‘maintenance’ treatments to help prevent or control their original symptoms. The frequency of these visits varies between Clients according to their needs, some have a treatment once a month, others every few months, whichever works best for the Client.

There is no need to wait until pain or stress is felt before booking a bowen treatment. It is widely accepted that Bowen is very relaxing and most people report better sleep after a treatment, making it suitable as a ‘treat’ to yourself.

Who can benefit from a Bowen treatment?

Bowen is so gentle that it is suitable for all age groups from the elderly and very sick to newborn babies, children, physically active or sportsmen and women. It is often used as a preventative measure, to avoid injury - in fact Bear Grylls uses Bowen exactly for this.

My Clinic is based on helping people in chronic pain, or with life limiting conditions such as MS, fibromyalgia, ME, Lupus and other similar disorders, but everyone is welcome here to try a Bowen session and see if it can help you.

I also have a keen interest in working with young babies and children. Bowen is very suitable for children, sessions tend to be alot shorter and take place on the floor, therapy couch, on Mum or Dad's lap, or anywhere that the child is happy. Please bring your child's favourite toy and cuddler. Children usually respond very quickly and know when they have had enough.

McLoughlin Scar Tissue Release technique (MSTR)

I qualified in the McLoughlin Scar Tissue Release technique, known as MSTR, in 2019 and offer this treatment to my Clients alongside Bowen and Reiki.

The McLoughlin Scar Tissue Release technique (MSTR) is a lovely gentle therapy that can be used to treat scars, some burns and also plantar fasciitis. This much needed therapy can bring relief to many people who have scars that:-

  • irritate
  • burn
  • tingle
  • are painful
  • are numb
  • are hypersensitive
  • you're just not happy with or any other reason.

    Scars are often a permanent reminder of a very traumatic event, whether the scar is the result of a planned surgical operation or an accident. The body has had a hole cut into it that was not meant to be there and it requires time to heal, not only physically but also emotionally.

    Scars can result in a loss of confidence and many can cause physical problems after healing, such as numbness, tingling and pain. Often the area itches, burns or is hypersensitive. Deep scarring can result in postural distortion, a loss of flexibility and muscle wastage! This, like Bowen, is a very gentle therapy and depending on the size of the scar, treatment takes between 7 and 15 minutes for one pass, which can be repeated after a few minutes break. Usually no more than 3 treatment sessions would be required.

    Scars often hold emotions too, work in this area can bring back memories of the 'event' that caused the scar - such as a knife wound, an accident or mastectomy - and letting go of these emotions is all part of the treatment. Scars of any age can be improved - even a 40yr old C-Section scar can improve with this technique!

    Gentle moves in a set sequence are made over the affected area to give better flexibility, release scar tissue and adhesions below the surface of the skin.

    There are very few practitioners currently offering this therapy in Suffolk and Cambridgeshire, therefore I'm pleased to be able to offer this treatment to all my Clients. Quite often improvements are felt or noticed in the look / feel of the scar immediately after treatment.

    Scars must be healed and a minimum of 8 weeks healing time must be allowed prior to treatment commencing.

  • Reiki Healing (Eastern Reiki following Mikao Usui)

    I qualified as a Reiki Practitioner in September 2019 and am pleased to offer Reiki healing at my Beck Row Clinic. From December 2021 I am also offering Crystal Reiki which can be used to balance the chakras and offer enhanced healing.

    Reiki is all about energy - a lovely 'hands-off' relaxing treatment where you can lie back and let the stresses of the day melt away. Listen to some lovely calming music and enjoy a half hour or hour of complete relaxation. Reiki can aid physical recovery as well as heal emotional traumas - in fact Reiki can do whatever you want it to do. There is no need to undress, you will lie on a therapy couch, be covered with a blanket and you are encouraged to completely relax - even fall asleep, that is not a problem! Everybody's experience of Reiki is different - some people see colours, some people feel warmth, some feel tingling and some feel very little other than being relaxed - it is very individual and there is no right or wrong.

    Why not book your first appointment today and set yourself off on a voyage of discovery for a new calmer relaxed you!
