Grandma’s Remedies – The Wonders Of Vicks Vapour Rub In Hot Water

Breathing the vapours created by this helps relieve the symptoms of deep sinus infections, hay-fever, throat problems and my personal favourite…change of season sinus run (aka Mucous all the way!!)

So to Grandma’s Recipe

1 coffee mug (or other heat proof container)

1 tea spoon

1 Vicks vapour rub

1 tea towel

Boil the kettle, take the tea spoon and for new folk start with a quarter of a tea spoon in a mug.

Fill mug with about an inch of boiling water, place on table and while holding mug place tea towel over you head and the mug. Then breath deeply the wonderful vapours.. in through the nose and out through the mouth. Do not get too close to the mug and close your eyes as the vapours can make the eyes sting.

NOTE: For young children simply take yourself with the mug of Vicks to the childs room. Stay in the room at all times with the mug of boiling liquid. You can place the mug in the room on a flat surface out of reach of children. The vapours will fill the room helping ease breathing and congestion. Wait 20 minutes in the room and exit with mug.

This can be repeated as necessary.


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.

Over the last 20 years Setter’s Health Centre has continually offered Bowen Therapy to the beautiful city of Townsville in Queensland, Australia. At the end of November 2011, I celebrated 20 years as a Bowen Therapist operating in this wonderful city. 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.
