What is Bowen Therapy? Grandma’s Remedies -Vitamin E Oil (Wheat Germ Oil) On Arthritic Joints.

Now for a short history lesson…

In the days of the horse and cart – which was my Grandma’s earliest transportation – they used the cheapest oil to make the leather traces supple. And this just happened to be wheat germ oil. Now as it was explained to me as a child, the ‘Older Generation’, with their arthritic hands, found they had relief from pain and better movement in their fingers for days after they oiled the traces. Thus Grandma learnt to use wheat germ oil on any arthritic area – rubbing it in after a shower.

I was therefore truly in awe as a adult when I found that wheat germ oil has one of the highest concentrations of Vitamin E. Now for your convienance you will find Vitamin E oil capsules available from any good chemist…or a bottle of wheat germ oil at any good health food shop.

Now how about that Older Generation by Jove! Who would have thought they would have known that oils ain’t oils 🙂


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.

I would like to thank all of you who have walked though my door over the last 20 years and allowed me 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 your injuries through Bowen Therapy.
