BOWEN THERAPY

The Bowen Technique is a gentle but dynamic system of muscle and connective tissue therapy.

Small but measured inputs, combined with rest periods, stimulate the body to heal itself, often profoundly.

Deborah delivers signals to the nervous system at specific locations (on muscles, tendons, ligaments or nerves) and the body does the rest, responding in its own time, as it is able.

Rather than focusing on a single complaint, the Bowen technique addresses the entire body by restoring balance via the autonomic nervous system (ANS).  The ANS controls over 80% of bodily functions and is very susceptible to external stressors.  Healing can occur only after the ANS shifts from sympathetic to parasympathetic dominance (rest, relax and repair mode).  The Bowen technique seems to catalyse that shift.

 

MASSAGE THERAPY

Massage therapy is the manual manipulation of the soft tissues of the body to achieve a therapeutic response.  It enhances the function of muscles and joints, improves the circulation of the blood and lymph, and relieves pain and stress.

Massage techniques are designed to rehabilitate, maintain or improve physical function.  The effects are mechanical, circulatory and neurological.  Receiving regular massage therapy treatments will address issues early, prevent long term effects of imbalances and promote and maintain body health.

Deborah utilizes Swedish Massage, Myofascial Release, Cupping and Lymphatic Drainage massage techniques.
