Welcome to the December edition of Setting the Path e-magazine 2012 Part B: Christmas carols, cold hams and frazzled nerves – don’t have the Christmas spirit give out on you


So what is Christmas?

Believe it or not, Christmas hasn’t always been about buying expensive toys (batteries not included). For the last two thousand years it’s been to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ – in fact, the period between December 21st and January 1st has been a time of feasting for all the great western civilisations, even those pre-dating Christianity. So what’s with all this feasting? Well, for Europe, December meant the very end of the autumn harvests and the last gasp of any fresh food until mid-spring. This was a time for people to enjoy the fruits of their labour and to eat up before winter left them with just pickled cabbage and mouldy lentils to eat.

So maybe this is the kind of attitude we should take into Christmas, instead of worrying about who’s going to sit next to Great Uncle Fred at Christmas lunch, be happy with everything you’ve ‘harvested’ this year with your nearests and dearests. If it’s been a small harvest, that’s the way it is sometimes, next year will always be better. Enjoy the day, forget about your troubles – after all, you only get to have Christmas once a year.

And So What Is Bowen Therapy?

What is Bowen Therapy?

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, with small waits of 2 minutes or more between sets of moves, the Bowen Therapist stimulates the body’s innate healing system to realign and re-balance.

What to expect when having a Bowen Therapy Treatment?

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 can Bowen Therapy do for me?
