It’s time to talk about STRESS



To put it simply, everything that happens inside your head is a pretty basic chemical reaction. Thoughts; our perceptions; and what makes us worry can all be influenced by what we’ve put into our body – and not just those outside influences we presume to be the problem. Eat better and we will stress less. Alcohol, caffeine and sugary empty calories might offer that quick hit, but don’t kid yourself, they’re not helping the problem. If you want real comfort food that might provide some long term lasting effects, then you should be looking for the least processed freshest food you can find. Almonds, fish, broccoli, whole grain rice and pasta, sushi, milk, rock melon, and beef can all provide a variety of stress busting vitamins, minerals and antioxidants to boost your serotonin levels – that in-built happy pill the brain is always yearning for. So try eating those troubles away and take some time to enjoy the scenery while you munch.

Welcome to Setter’s Health Centre the home of Bowen Therapy in Townsville Queensland Australia.

Providing 21 years of continual Bowen Therapy care to the Townsville community. And continuing to set the standard for Bowen Therapy care for all others to follow.

Celebrating 21 years

At the end of November 2012 we celebrated 21 years as Bowen Therapists operating in this wonderful city of Townsville QLD. We would humbly like to thank all of you who have walked though our door over the last 21 years, and allowed us to help you through some very trying times in your lives. It has been a wonderful journey to be your Bowen Therapist and to watch as you have recovered from injury using Bowen Therapy.

What is Bowen Therapy?

A Bowen Therapist rolls the muscles to stimulate the nerves underneath. In a set system of these moves, we get the body to respond and realign. In essence we are getting the human body to work for itself.

Did you know?

“Tom Bowen’s Technique Modality was named in his honour ‘Bowen Therapy‘ years after his death in 1982.”

“Tom Bowen never used his Technique in combination with any other modality because it was clear that the work became less effective or ceased to function at all.”

“Tom Bowen trained only six people in his modality. Mr Ossie Rentsch the founder of the Bowen Therapy Academy of Australia (Bowtech) is one of these six. Sadly, at this time none of the six reside in Townsville, Australia.”

“Everyone is better with Tom Bowen’s Therapy in it’s original form.”
