It’s the 21st-century but no one has told your body



In this day and age we probably try too hard to relax. Think about it, a day at the beach means fighting traffic, struggling with the esky and making sure the kids don’t get sunburnt. Go somewhere for a two week break and you come home feeling like you need a holiday. The simple fact is you haven’t relaxed if you’re still feeling stressed. So instead of going for that long drive into the danger zone, how about just shutting the front door and taking the dog or your favourite someone for a walk. Maybe you’ll notice the neighbour’s roses are in bloom – it’s a lot easier to smell them when you’re not driving past at 60km/h. So take it slow, look around you, watch the birds playing in a puddle. What about reading a book? Simple stuff, no need for planning and preparation – except maybe turning off the phone. Then there’s movies to watch on that big screen TV you never find the time to enjoy – even though you’re stressing over the repayment…okay, maybe watching that movie won’t make you relax.

Still, it’s the simple and easiest things we can take pleasure from…because we haven’t had to try so hard to find them. Keep that in mind the next time a few minutes of peace and quiet opens up in your diary.

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.
