New adventures

After 3 1/2 years working from a treatment room at home, I have finally taken the plunge and found separate business premises. From Monday 10th April, I will be working from the Cross Community Centre in Pontardawe.
I’ll still be offering Bowen fascial release technique and reflexology but in a great central location. There are several car parks within a short walk and disabled parking just opposite the Centre. For those with mobility restrictions, there is a lift to get to my room and there is a disabled wc on the ground floor as well as other wc facilities near my room.
Why not come down to say hello and then take a stroll around Pontardawe where we have a great range of independent shops and cafes.

Back pain & stiffness

If you are suffering from back pain or find that you are just not as flexible as you used to be, why not see how Bowen might help to relieve pain and stiffness – after all, wouldn’t you like to be out in the garden getting everything perfect for the summer without worrying about spending the next few days in pain?

Bowen does it’s thing again

New client booked in for 3 treatments & on the 1st appointment really struggled to get her leg up onto the couch as she was in so much pain.  When she came for her 2nd appointment she reported that she had felt really ill after the 1st treatment and had gone to bed for a couple of hours. However, 3 days later she was completely pain free and had even managed to start running again. 3rd treatment cancelled as unnecessary, happy client with happy bank balance!

Chronic pain

Delighted to have 2 new Bowen clients starting this afternoon, both with chronic pain issues, one with her hip and one with her back.  It’s amazing how often the gentle moves of Bowen start to bring relief when other therapies and treatments haven’t helped.  Clients can normally tell within 3 treatments if Bowen is going to help them, so not too much pain in the bank balance either!

Body reading course

I was lucky enough last month to attend a 2 day body reading course for Bowen therapists led by the inspiring Julian Baker from the European College of Bowen Studies.

Many of us don’t realise that our aches and pains can be brought about as a result of older injuries or imbalances in other parts of the body, for example an old knee injury or broken ankle can cause the body to compensate by carrying weight on the other side of the body with resultant lower back pain possibly many months or even years later.  You may not even be aware that you are compensating in this way but such an imbalance may be successfully addressed with a course of Bowen treatments.

I’m really looking forward to using my improved body reading skills to pick up on any imbalances found.
