Stop Running & Do Some Maintenance

By Reinette Nel.

ReinetteSo, you are driving along in your car, when suddenly you hear a clickety-clack noise.  Or maybe that noise has been there for a while, but today, because it’s cold, it’s a bit louder and more insistent.  What do you do?

Do you ignore it or do you decide that it’s time you ask a mechanic to look at it?  Maybe he can tell you not to worry, or maybe your car just needs oil and he can quickly do it for you?  What will happen if you keep ignoring it and keep on driving, day after day, after day?  Of course it will break down and we both know it will most likely happen at the most inconvenient time.  The day you have your interview for that job that you really, really want!  Or maybe even on your wedding day or Year 12 exam!  No, you know it’s best to let someone have a look and fix it now, rather than wait and then you have to fork out even more money and you might be without a car for a week or two.

So why don’t you treat your body the same?  Why don’t you take care of those little niggles, before they become big issues?  Chronic issues, which will stop you from living your life - the one where you can do what you want, when you want!  No, we would rather just pop a pill and see if it disappears, or we ignore it until it just feels normal.  Isn’t this how you are supposed to feel when you are getting old or working hard or have three kids running around?



Bowen therapy can be your first port of call, it can be the oil change at just the right time, before you need a whole new engine.  It can be the difference between an hour of maintenance, compared to a week off sick or living a life in pain and discomfort.  If you take care of the small things they will never have time to develop into something big.  It should be your go-to first aid procedure, so that you can make that interview with a calm presence, a clear mind and a flexible, pain-free body.  It will get you to your wedding on time, so that you can enjoy the night without that lower back pain.  It’s writing your Year 12 exam without that headache, tight neck and shoulders.  When you have been in an accident or fallen off your bike, it can make the difference between being in pain for months to being sore for just a few weeks.

So why don’t you put it in your First-aid cabinet, let it be just a call away and take better care of yourself.  Spending a little now sounds much better than spending a lot later.  Stop running away from your pain and issues this summer and come in for some maintenance.  You will feel a whole lot better!

Welcome to the World of [...]

by Debbie Bates.

My first experience of this profound complementary therapy was in 1999, I was pleasantly surprised as I felt a deep sense of relaxation moving through my body and afterwards, a state of calm as I moved back out into the world.  I was fascinated that points on the feet were connected to different parts of my body and through the session, felt stress falling away from my neck and shoulders.  It was after this session that I decided to undertake a practitioner’s course and while studying, my family and friends benefited as I practiced on them and that helped lessen their stress also - a win/win.

Every Body Loves Bowen

by Jen Taylor.

I meet many clients who come in to find some relief from the pain patterns & injuries which may be interrupting their daily routine.  It is common in our western culture to be used to needing a quick fix to be able to carry on with life.  It seems as a society we are not so keen at accepting the pain and addressing any feelings that may be underneath the pain.  There is such a drive to ignore pain or to reach for some kind of pain relief to be able to carry on with the daily routine.  Certainly, sometimes this is a necessary choice however, pain can be a wonderful signal in the body to help us to look at and address perhaps a wider set of problems.  The body is sending a message to look a bit closer and pay attention, if one chooses. 

Fascinating Fascia

By Reinette Nel.

Fascia is the new buzz word.  For ages we have been cutting away the fascia to get to the more important aspects in the human body like the muscles, bones and organs not knowing or realising that what has been discarded was in fact the largest sense organ within the body.

Fascia is everywhere in the body.  It surrounds and forms an intricate network within every structure.  It is a strong, flexible support system,  the most richly innervated tissue in the body, with a very high density of sensory nerves that help our nervous system orient to our surroundings.

It’s like a smooth and slippery web of connective tissue that attaches, stabilises, encloses and separates.  It is the stuff that holds us together otherwise we would just be a puddle on the floor, almost like jelly.  If you can make everything else in the body disappear (except fascia), you would look like a big piece of candyfloss.

Emotions & Psychological [...]

By Dr Elinor van Ommen.

“Am I too sensitive?” , “why can’t I move on from this?”… these are common questions I hear, and I often meet people who are in distress that relates to difficulty processing emotion.

The Joy of Learning to know [...]

by Jen Taylor.

What is your life purpose, what will you choose & what may be the benefits?

Who would you want to be remembered as, at the end of your life?

Where would you love to make a difference or contribution?

When could you allow yourself to follow your inner knowing and create more space to shine?

There will be many people, places, things which can seem insignificant but may also be alluring and oh so ready to jump in and take you off your path of wiser knowing.  There are many little ways these events can take you away from what may make your heart alight with joy.

Your Best Interests at Heart

by Jen Taylor.

What is it that bothers you?  A problem or issue that could really be worthy of attention.  Something which feels annoying or is even more compelling and having a destructive effect on your health or relationships?  Perhaps it comes as a quiet whisper or a deeper nagging feeling?  Have you been tucking it away, seeing if it could magically disappear?  Hoping that tomorrow will be the day and yet, as each day evolves, the problem and the discomfort is still there.
