Bowen Therapy (or Bowen Technique) is a hands on technique which will help balance and support your body’s own self healing ability by naturally relaxing the body as a whole. Pain and discomfort may just disappear after just one treatment! Bowen Therapy is a very gentle form of bodywork, developed by the late Tom Bowen in the 1950’s in Australia. Small, gentle, precise moves are made on muscles, tendons, ligaments and nerves, triggering the body to begin a healing process. Bowen addresses the entire body, by helping to restore balance in the autonomic nervous system. The Bowen moves prompt the shift from the stressed, sympathetic “fight or flight” mode, to parasympathetic “rest and repair” dominance. It’s not uncommon for clients to fall into a state of deep relaxation during treatment, many even fall asleep. A Bowen session aims to help the body holistically – balancing the body, while also addressing the injury or pain area. The treatment initiates changes in the body that continue for up to a week. Some people may feel immediate relief, while most experience changes in their body over the following days.
The Bowen moves impact the body in a number of ways – through nerve receptors, fascia lines, acupuncture points along meridians, and lymphatic drainage. Bowen helps to calm the nervous system by stimulating the proprioceptors which signal to the body that it can help facilitate the healing process.
There is an obvious influence of Bowen moves along the body’s fascia lines. Fascia plays a major role in muscle coordination, postural alignment, and overall structural and functional integrity – these are negatively impacted when fascia is tight, twisted or dehydrated. Following a Bowen session, improved mobility and posture is commonly seen – a “positive side-effect” when people seek treatment for other reasons.
The same thing can be said about meridians. Many Bowen moves are done at the sites that correspond to acupuncture points. Many clients feel clear changes in their digestive system, with “gurgling” stomachs a common sound throughout treatment.
Lastly, Bowen procedures activate draining of the lymphatic system, initiating detoxification and stimulating the immune system.
Bowen therapy by distance:
Bowen Therapy sessions have an energetic component to it and are very adaptable to remote work. I just refer to it as distance healing or transferring energy using Bowen Therapy. Please contact me for further information if you are interested in a distance healing session using Bowen Therapy.

Reiki is another great therapy for stress reduction and relaxation and also promotes healing. It is administered by “laying on hands” and is based on the idea that energy flows through us to you. If one’s “life force energy” is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy. During the course of the treatment I will place my hands lightly or above the body in various non-intrusive positions. Reiki is not directed by the mind, nor does it use the life force energy of me. I just simply act as a channel (imagine a funnel) that connects you to the universal and earth life force energy source. Your energy system will automatically receive what Reiki energy it needs, and use it in whatever way is appropriate at that time. It is calming and gentle to receive a treatment. You may feel the Reiki energy as an energy flow from my hands, warmth, slight tingling, coolness or nothing at all. During the treatment sometimes people experience slight body movements or their stomach rumbling. It is also common to feel very relaxed, and even sleepy too!
This is a very popular therapy combing dōTERRA essential oils and the Bowen therapy for a super relaxing treatment for the senses and the body. It has the same great benefits as a Bowen treatment, however we start the treatment with a light short back and foot essential oil technique massage for approximately 30 minutes and then followed with a Bowen treatment of around 30 minutes long. The best of both worlds if you simply love essential oils and Bowen! Allow for 90 minutes for this treatment.
This is also a combination of applying dōTERRA essential oils along with Reiki healing technique which is based on the principle that energy is channelled to the client by touch to activate the natural healing process. The essential oil light massage technique is approximately 30 minutes (back and feet) with a 20-30 minutes of Reiki healing. This treatment is aimed at balancing the chakras, clearing blockages in the mind, body and emotions, releasing stress and creating a deep sense of relaxation. All you have to do is lie down and listen to the soothing music and allow me to work with gentle touch. This treatment will surely help you to release stress and restore your vital energy. Having the Reiki added to this treatment brings it to a whole new level! You will have a feeling of euphoria for days to follow!
Another beautiful combination of two therapies that fit energetically well together. Start off with some Reiki to help relax your body and mind for 20-30 minutes and then have the bowen treatment after. It should leave you feeling refreshed and revitalised.
BioPulse Ionic Detox Foot Spa
BioPulse Ionic Foot Baths have been used for many years by many people as part of their detoxification routine. Some of the reported experiences include a greater feeling of well-being, improved sleep, increased vitality, pain and stress relief and symptomatic relief from swollen and painful joints. A foot bath session is an external method that can help detoxify and eliminate natural waste.
How does this work? – The module delivers an electric current into the water in the foot tub. This low-level current causes metal within the array and the water and salt of the foot bath to generate negative and positively charged ions. The negative ions move through the body to attach to toxic substances with an opposite charge. Most toxins in our bodies have a positive charge so they are neutralized and then pulled out of the body through osmosis due to their attraction to the ion field in the spa water.
The BioPulse can help restabilize cells so that physiological functions can run at optimum levels. This can help restore the immune system. The negative ions can raise your pH to a more alkaline level, which is thought to help combat many types of illnesses. Also your BioPulse foot cleanse includes many frequencies designed to address certain conditions.
Helps remove toxins & heavy metals – Many health conditions are linked with heavy metals and chemical toxicity.
