    THERAPEUTIC MASSAGE

    Mainly done on a massage table with or without oil depending on the therapist approach and goals laid out in the beginning of the treatment. Works best for targeting specific issues you would like addressed with the therapist. There are many different approaches and ways each style will bring you to a place where your physical, mental and emotional bodies can be balanced which in turn will improve quality of life. This style is recommended for people with reoccurring pain or stress from work or play. The use of hot-stones may be added to this treatment to facilitate the release of muscle tension but, is to be discussed before hand with therapist so stones are ready for treatment ahead of time.

Bowen Technique

    BOWEN TECHNIQUE

    The Bowen Technique is a hands-on therapy applied using very gentle pressure. The practitioner uses thumbs and fingers on precise points of the body to perform Bowen’s unique sets of rolling-type moves which stimulate the muscles and soft tissue of the body. Recipients are generally fully clothed. Each session typically involves gentle rolling motions along the muscles, tendons, and fascia. The therapy’s distinctive features are the minimal nature of the physical intervention and pauses incorporated in the treatment, these pauses allow the body to incorporate the messages/movements made by the practitioner. This approach to body work is recommended for those looking for balancing the bodies nervous system and treating many frustrating issues that may have not resolved themselves during other forms of treatment.
