A unique non-invasive holistic therapy consisting of a sequence of moves using light pressure over muscles and soft tissue, interspersed with rest periods. Bowen works primarily, (but not exclusively) with the fascia – the web of connective tissue that “wraps” the whole body. One of the most profound effects Bowen can have is shifting the ANS (Autonomic Nervous System), which controls over 80% of bodily functions, releasing stress at a deep level.
McTimoney Chiropractic is a very low tech way of working with the body, using only the hands the Chiropractor can gently assess the alignment of the skeleton then adjust any bones that are found to be misaligned. This allows the nervous system to operate to its optimum capacity. Altering the alignment of the skeleton can relieve muscle tension and physical stress and restore comfort and ease.
Coaching is primarily focused on the present and the future. It may be necessary to look back to find the root causes of some unhelpful thinking patterns, and then untie some knots, but then we come back to the “Where are you now?”, “Where do you want to go?” and “Who/Where do you want to be!”.
COGNITIVE BEHAVIOURAL THERAPY (CBT)

COUNSELLING/PSYCHOTHERAPY/DANCE MOVEMENT PSYCHOTHERAPY

Psychotherapy focuses on working with clients for longer-term and draws from insight into emotional issues and difficulties.
When you place ‘tools’ such as crystals close to the body the two energy fields interact. In this way crystals can release energy blockages and amplify energy deficiencies to bring balance to the human energy system. This can have a direct effect on the physical body. The benefits of this are immeasurable, because once you release subconscious blockages from your mind; your energy is free to flow, providing peace of mind and improved emotional and physical conditions.

EAR CANDLING (THERMAL AURICULAR THERAPY)
This treatment involves a hollow candle, made of herbal extracts, being placed into each ear. The lit candle creates a mild suction action to help draw out impurities from the ear and, together with the slight warmth, stimulates blood circulation and equalises the pressure within the head and ears. This gives rebalancing health benefits to the ears, nasal cavities and respiratory system.
EMOTIONAL FREEDOM TECHNIQUE (EFT)

Kinesiology uses muscle testing to identify imbalances a person has by monitoring their ability to hold their muscles against light pressure. Each muscle is related to an organ and an energy pathway called a meridian. Together the muscle, organ and meridian form a circuit. If there are chemical, emotional, structural or energetic stresses, weakening the circuit the muscle test will feel weak indicating an imbalance.
