Bowen is a painless, gentle treatment, suitable for any age. Truly holistic in its approach, it works with the whole body, getting to the root cause of your situation or condition rather than just focusing on the symptoms. The light and gentle moves used in Bowen kick start the body’s own innate ability to heal itself, and for many of my clients the results have been profound and quick, with most clients needing no more than 3 treatments.

By stimulating and massaging points on the feet or hands that correspond to points in the body, I work with your own body's ability to restore balance and harmony. For some the benefit of a Reflexology treatment can be as simple as relaxing, for others it can help with stress and anxiety, or specific issues like back pain or migraines. With fertility treatment on the NHS more difficult to obtain, many people are also coming for conception / fertility reflexology.

I’ve always been interested in leading a more complementary life, one that takes into account a more holistic approach to health and well-being and a more sustainable approaching to living. As a therapist you would think that I would have this nailed by now, but as a working mum I honestly struggle with how to do this in a way that fits in with and, most importantly, enhances the elements that already make up the reality of my everyday life. My 'A Complementary Life' Blog is really my exploration of what a complementary life might consist of, sharing ideas and suggestions, breaking it down into its key elements, making it easier to select the elements that will enable me, you, to lead a complementary life that enhances the realities of our own every-day lives.
Wired: Is it time to re-think your bra?
Underwire bra’s – a help or a hindrance? I was firmly in the help category – a nice underwire bra to keep those babies looking as pert and firm as they could, considering the ravages of time and breast-fed children. And, since discovering the wonders of a properly fitted bra that looked fabulous, I was pretty much happy wearing bra’s. That was until I started by training as a Bowen therapist and began to really take a look at what was keeping my babies up.
Have you looked at the underwire in your bra – not just felt it, looked at it? It is not just a thin piece of wire, it's a very strong, thick piece of scaffolding. At this point there are some that will start discussing underwire bra’s and cancer, but I don’t know enough about it, there is not a strong enough body of evidence that I can find, and I actually think it’s detracting from some more fundamental and basic issues about how wearing an underwire bra might affect women, and that don’t need science to prove them right or wrong.
