Alternative Medicine – Pet Therapy

011Stuck in a rut? Same four walls? Same face looking back from the same mirror? Maybe you need a change…or maybe you need a pet. Studies from the United States – where sixty percent of households have pets – have shown people with furry friends tend to be happier and healthier. The Minnesota Stroke Institute found that owning a cat dramatically reduced the risk of dying from heart disease. Don’t like cats? Well, there’s a proven connection between having a dog in the house and reducing blood pressure and cholesterol. In fact, caring for a pet improves our sense of well-being and how we deal with stress – so much so that dogs are now being used to help rehabilitate injured soldiers and disaster survivors. Yale University is even providing one-on-one time for students needing to download to the University’s on-call Jack Russel. But remember, owning a pet is a big commitment. Taking off for the weekend or coming home late will be just that little bit harder, but if you can make that sacrifice, then maybe filling your life with some unconditional love will help smooth those bumps on life’s rocky road.

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.
