Welcome to Bowen at Bald Hills
I began my mind bodywork 20 years ago after I received a Reiki treatment. I found it to be an effective form of energy healing for both emotional and physical pain, and so through study became a Reiki practitioner.
A few years later I had a Bowen treatment for Sciatic pain and was amazed by the immediate results from this gentle and non-intrusive session. There was no cracking of bones or twisting of limbs – in fact, I felt very relaxed and fell asleep during the treatment! I wanted to learn more about this modality and decided to study and become a Bowen practitioner myself.
I truly love doing Bowen for people. It coalesces beautifully with Reiki and offers my clients a powerful, holistic treatment.
Bowen Therapy is a technique that was developed to give relief to many health concerns. It is a gentle non-invasive technique that enables the client to relax and thus the body can re-align and begin the process of healing. It is so gentle it can be used on the elderly and if the client is unable to lie on a table then it can be done sitting in a chair for the client’s comfort. The small gentle moves made by the practitioner over the muscles send signals to the body that something is out of alignment and the body adjusts itself. This is why there is a wait time between moves somewhat like the busy signal on your computer.
Reiki translates to Universal Life Force Energy. It was developed in Japan in the late 1800s. Reiki is used to aid relaxation, assist in the body’s natural healing processes, and develop emotional, mental, and spiritual well-being.
I’ve been coming to Carol for Bowen and Reiki treatments over several years and have experienced some amazing results. One of my main problems was hip and back pain which first started after giving birth to my third child, over 30 years ago.
I consequently went through years of pain – sometimes niggly, other times excruciating and did the rounds of many practitioners. Nothing seemed to help for any length of time, and I felt that I was stuck with having to be in constant pain.
After having my first treatment of Bowen I was surprised at how gentle and effective the results were. I felt for the first time in ages that my spine and hips were aligned and couldn’t believe that after all those years I felt like I was back to ‘normal’ again!
I first tried Bowen therapy two years ago due to persistent lower back issues caused mostly by old sporting injuries and bad posture and age. Within a day or two of treatment my back was noticeably less painful and, over the next week, continued to improve to the extent that now back pain is a rare issue for me. Carol has since treated me for numerous leg injuries ( hamstring and calf ), tennis elbow and neck strains. I notice relief and improvement mostly soon after treatment and over the next few days, the injury becomes unnoticeable. I forget that I was in pain. I also regularly have maintenance treatments.
I have no doubt that Carol’s Bowen treatments are allowing me to remain active and pain-free and continue to be involved in sport ( touch footy, mountain biking, gym, etc ) when perhaps I really should be slowing down. I could not recommend Bowen@ Bald Hills highly enough!
