The Bowen Technique
The Bowen Technique is a fascinating treatment, it is a simple, yet highly specific, hands-on procedure which has been widely practised in Australia since its development in the 1950's by Tom Bowen, an industrial engineer. Bowen Technique procedures were initially directed at acute musculoskeletal complaints such as work- and sports-related injuries. It soon became apparent, however, that these procedures had a demonstrable effect on many chronic medical problems, which include a litany of environmental medical syndromes.
"Thank you so much for my session today - I have had such a lovely day and know that I'm going to sleep like a baby tonight! I am so pleased I took up your offer last year and have started a little journey of discovery and unwinding at the same time. Thank you."

"I was in a desperate state of suffering a phase of insomnia over the Christmas period and by chance found Amanda for a reflexology treatment. I can't recommend Amanda highly enough. I walked out after one hour of treatment with a much calmer mind, followed by a good night's sleep. The value of that feeling of waking up after a good night's sleep cannot be put into words, but everyone who has experienced insomnia will know exactly what I mean! 10 days on and I'm still sleeping! Thank you Amanda!"
