Devised in Australia by Thomas Ambrose Bowen in the 1950’s, Bowen Therapy is a soft tissue remedial technique that involves small moves made over muscles, ligaments, tendons and fascia at various points on the body.
It is an extremely subtle, relaxing and effective treatment which is safe enough to use on anyone from young babies to the elderly, and may facilitate lasting and drug-free relief from pain and discomfort.
Responses have been reported from the first session, however each person will respond in their own unique way, with each session being tailored to suit individual requirements.

What is the Scar Tissue Release Technique?
Small cross-fibre moves are performed across and along the scar using small, specific gentle ‘pulling’ movements that assist to release collagen fibres. The moves made by the practitioner are small and gentle – no heavy pressure is ever used. No equipment, products or machines are used with this technique which may be considered similar to Bowen Therapy, but differs in application and usually delivered in isolation.
What does it do?
The body is positively influenced by the application of the scar work by changing the construction of the tissue allowing lymphatic drainage, increased blood flow, nerve restoration and normalisation. Any age of scar can be worked on with many clients reporting positive results, including: more freedom of movement; pain relief (not necessarily associated with the scar), and difference in appearance at the scar site.
No adverse responses have been reported.
Safe to use on all ages.

An ancient technique that is most commonly performed on the feet by stimulating the nervous system. Using the feet as a ‘map’, the practitioner aims to work on different parts of the body by stimulating specific points using gentle pressure and massage. The body is then encouraged to use its own natural resources to achieve balance and work more efficiently, which may assist to relieve discomfort, tension and maintain homeostasis. Reflexology is most commonly performed on the feet, however if it is more appropriate or preferred, hand or face reflexology can be performed to achieve similar results.
Deeply relaxing, safe and suitable for all ages, delivered in calm and relaxed surroundings, the technique may assist with many symptoms, including:
Stress and anxiety; disturbed sleep patterns; Hay fever; Headaches and Migraines; Back and neck issues; Sciatica; Knee, ankle and foot issues; Hormonal irregularities; Fibromyalgia
