Bowen Therapy

Bowen Therapy (developed by the late Tom Bowen, from Geelong, Australia) is a gentle, non-invasive form of body work that assists the release and restoration of the fascia, which facilitates the body's own healing capabilities and works on multiple levels within the body including the physical, emotional and mental.

 

When injured, dehydrated, or stressed, fascia can tighten up or become "stuck" in places, causing limitations and painful mobility. Bowen therapy allows the body to shift from the "fight, flight and freeze" response to "rest, relax and repair".

By applying this gentle technique around various areas of the body, it is thought that the communication pathways to the body’s systems are activated allowing the body to move more into the parasympathetic state.

The Bowen treatment can be completed over light clothing (no jeans) and consists of a number of gentle moves with a minimum wait of 90 seconds. This wait time allows the body to integrate the messages given before continuing on with further moves. Depending on the client's needs and responses the treatment lasts between 15 minutes and an hour.

 

After a Bowen Therapy session is completed, it can take up to 10 days to fully integrate into the body so it is recommended that no other physical therapy be undertaken for 7 days afterwards.

Other recommendations for after a Bowen treatment are as follows.

  • Drink extra water to keep hydrated and to assist any toxins released to be removed from the body.

  • Avoid extremely hot showers or heat/cold packs.

  • Avoid the gym or other strenuous exercise for the rest of the day.

  • Avoid sitting for longer than 30 minutes at a time for the rest of the day.

Hypnotherapy

Hypnotherapy is a therapy that accesses the client's subconscious mind to assist them in achieving their goals, whether it be releasing a fear, stopping smoking, losing weight, releasing trauma, creating good study habits or to gain confidence.

Hypnosis is a natural state of the mind which everyone goes through numerous times in the day, while watching TV, scrolling through social media and particularly just before falling asleep. In basic terms, it is where the conscious mind hands control over to the subconscious mind.

The conscious mind is the logical, reasoning part of the mind and the subconscious mind is where all your memories and habits are stored. This is why hypnotherapy is so powerful. 

 

The therapist works with the client to create the desired suggestions for change in the conscious state and then by accessing the subconscious mind directly through hypnosis, the therapist is able to assist clients by releasing old habits/programming and/or negative emotions around memories and then prepare the mind for the new way - the way in which the client wants to move forward.
