I offer Bowen Therapy, a gentle but dynamic treatment, for humans, horses and dogs.
I have been practising for over 14 years and am now even more impressed with its results. The therapy seems to work on many levels - purely physical muscle release but also much deeper subtle energy shifts. I have a particular interest in long term resolution of dis-ease through the study of energy medicine. It was Einstein who said "Energy is everything and that's all there is to it - this is not philosophy, this is physics".
In humans, conditions from tennis elbow and frozen shoulder to sciatica/backpain and asthma all seem to have responded well. Mobility problems in dogs and horses likewise. Although we, as therapists, are not allowed to diagnose, it is fascinating to note the responses of animals to individual moves on muscles and ligaments. It can help build a picture as to the nature of the problem.
