Alternative Medicine – I’m going to phone a friend…


One of the biggest problems with change is that we tend to personalise it…making it all about us and creating a sense of paranoia that change will be a lonely experience. The thing is, most changes, even personal ones like losing weight or giving up smoking, impact on those around us. That diet is going to take the cooperation of those who regularly cook for you or you prepare meals for. Giving up smoking or sugar means cravings and moods swings that will impact on everyone in your life – just as the future health benefits will too.What this means is that fear of being alone in a sea of change is almost always misplaced.

There will always be someone else experiencing that change with you, or who has gone before you or means to go after you. Friends, family, colleagues – everyone has been through something…their advice, help or support is there to keep you on your new path. If you’re thinking about changing something in your life, ask around. Find out what others have been doing. How did they change? Or how are they planning to change? Don’t make that huge first step a moon landing where no one has been before…because one thing is for sure – someone has.

So stop thinking about this change as your problem – start seeing the big picture – of how this new direction in your life will benefit those around you and beside you. Who knows, this change might benefit people you don’t even know yet…or may never know…but just like that butterfly flapping its wings on one side of the ocean, you may never realise how big your change could be unless you try it.

What is Bowen Therapy?

The Gentle Healing Technique

Bowen Therapeutic Technique (Bowen Therapy) is a dynamic system of muscle and connective tissue therapy that encourages the body to right itself. This technique involves a gentle roll over the muscle. By using a set system of these small moves from the base of the neck to the tips of the toes, the therapist stimulates the body’s innate healing system to realign and re-balance.

Bowen Therapeutic Technique (Bowen Therapy) is completely safe for the newborn baby to the frail and elderly. It is gentle, fast and an effective way to treat health concerns from sporting injuries to pain, stress and discomfort. Bowen Therapy stimulates the patient’s musculoskeletal system into realigning itself.

The beauty of Bowen Therapy is that it will not interfere and works well with all medication and/or dietary supplements and is gentle but powerful. A treatment takes about one hour.

What is the History of Bowen Therapy in Townsville, Queensland Australia?

Bowen therapy was first taught in Townsville in July 1991, by Bowtech Founders Ossie and Elaine Rentsch. Benjamin Setter was at that course and opened the first Bowen Therapy Clinic in Townsville, Queensland, Australia in November 1991.

Since then, Benjamin and the dedicated Crew of Bowen Therapy Specialists at Setter’s Health Centre, have travelled around Australia and around the World to train with the best in Bowen Therapy, so that they can continue to offer an outstanding Bowen Therapy service to the community of Townsville, Queensland.

Welcome to Setter’s Health Centre and congratulations on taking the first step to taking your health into your own hands. Setter’s Health Centre is a local business which has been providing Bowen Therapeutic Technique (Bowen Therapy) to Townsville and surrounding areas since 1991.

The aim of Setter’s Health Centre has not altered in 23 years. The aim at Setters Health Centre is to focus on what your goals are for pain and symptom relief, how these fit into your life, and how to help you and your body to achieve realistic goals.

Whilst our treatments help to activate your body’s innate self-healing ability, your body will require certain things from you to help it achieve this healing. While we aim to help you achieve your goals, we are the assistant and your input in achieving these goals is integral!

At the end of November 2014, we celebrated 23 years as a Bowen Therapists.
