Pain relief with Bowen Therapy, Reiki, Energy Healing

Ouch!! Want to get rid of that pain quickly?  Stress and pain can significantly reduce your quality of life.

When you hold tension in your body it can lead to pain and restricted movement.

Pain affects how you move through your daily routine at home and at work, how you sleep, and even how you think and feel about your life.

NST (Neuro Structural Integration Technique) is an advanced form of Bowen Therapy which is gentle, profoundly relaxing and quickly realigns and rebalances  the body alleviating aches and pains.

How does it work? Consisting of rolling movements over specific points on the body, it releases restrictions and toxins to quickly and effectively restore the flow of energy and movement back into the muscles, joints and systems.

There are short ‘waiting periods’ between some moves to allow the brain time to respond with an instruction to release the tension in that area. Most clients relax very deeply, and report the positive effects last much longer than a regular massage.

When will I notice a change? Most people notice an improvement in movement and reduction in pain on their first visit. Common problems can usually be resolved within 3 or 4 visits.

What conditions can be treated? NST/Bowen therapy can help with many conditions:

  • back-pain, sciatica, neck-pain, sore shoulders
  • hips, leg/knee/ankle and foot-pain
  • tennis elbow, sore wrists eg: carpal tunnel syndrome, overuse syndrome
  • headaches, TMJ & jawpain, tinnitus, middle ear problems/dizziness
  • breathing, digestive and period problems

** To improve and maintain movement simple exercises and stretches are often given to clients to do at home to support and enhance their results.

How often do I need to come for treatment?  Much like maintaining your car, your body needs some regular maintenance and TLC to keep it ticking along smoothly. So, some clients may come once a month “just because it  feels so relaxing and keeps me tuned up”, others come every couple of months because they realise their body is getting tense or they feel pain from repetitive movements/heavy workloads/intense sporting activities.

Some clients just come a few times a year, or when they notice they are feeling stressed or tight following recent activities such as gardening, painting or sport. It is entirely up to you and your body. You certainly don’t need to be here every week. I encourage you to learn to listen to your body. Most people comment that the Bowen/NST’s effect lasts longer than a massage, and is far more relaxing as they are not being touched all the time.

What is Energy Healing?  Suzie has trained in Reiki and other energy healing techniques over the years, and often finds it very useful to incorporate some energy healing during sessions to create even deeper relaxation or to help the body to release deeply held blocks in certain areas. Clients love the soothing feeling of warmth in their body, the gentle release or sensation of their pain draining away, and the sense of vibrant, healing energy filling them up again. Reiki can also be used in conjunction with Bowen therapy or Pulsing (rhythmical rocking).
