Michele holds a Certificate IV in Bowen Therapy which is a gentle bodywork technique developed by the late Tom Bowen in Geelong, Victoria. Tom Bowen treated literally thousands of people with the technique during his life. It was not till the 1980’s that the technique was taught to others by a few devoted students of his work. The Bowen technique has been gaining recognition worldwide as an effective therapy for all sorts of health problems. Michele has had the good fortune to have been trained and mentored by one of the world’s leading teacher-trainers of Bowen Technique, Anne Schubert! Thank you Anne.
The Bowen Technique differs from other bodywork techniques because it stimulates the body to heal itself. The technique involves gentle rolling moves performed at specific locations on the body involving muscles, nerves, tendons and ligaments in specific sequences depending on the presenting symptoms. The moves are interspersed with a short “pause” when the therapist may leave the room enabling the body to integrate the response from each set of moves. The technique is deeply relaxing and restorative, causing the body to rebalance and realign itself after acute injury or chronic dis-ease states.
Bowen therapy is safe to use on all persons and most conditions from newborns and infants, children, teens, pregnancy and the elderly.
Conditions that can be assisted by Bowen therapy include:
- sleep problems,
- digestive problems,
- muscle pain and discomfort from chronic stress,
- pain from injury anywhere to the body,
- spinal and pelvic misalignments including scoliosis,
- chronic sinusitis,
- teething problems in children,
- colic in babies,
- behavioural problems in children,
- headaches and migraines,
- sore back,
- knee problems,
- feet problems,
- …many more conditions can be alleviated with Bowen therapy.
If you are suffering from a new and recent injury or condition it would be reasonable to expect pain relief with one or two sessions.
For chronic health problems you may need to have around six sessions, but you should notice a shift towards improvement in the condition after the first or second treatment.
Give your body a chance to experience the remarkable benefits of Bowen therapy.
