MUSCULOSKELETAL THERAPY / BOWEN
Originally called Myopractic.

This technique evolved from Neil Skillbeck’s interpretation and combination of chiropractic, osteopathic , orthopaedic assessment and Tom Bowens techniques to soft tissue of the body mainly tendons and ligaments to assist the body to realign the skeletal system and re-balance other body systems to improve overall wellbeing.

The main principles of Musculoskeletal Therapy focus on balancing and aligning the skeletal and muscular system which in turn impacts on other body systems to allow the maximum range of motion to restore proper body mechanics. This is performed by measuring and observing the clients structure / posture and applying effective muscle techniques to re align the presenting dysfunction.

A Cross Fibre technique is applied by using the thumbs or fingers in an action across the muscle fibres, tendons and ligaments to break up lesions in particular areas of the body. This in turn stimulates the nervous system to release the muscle contraction and allow the bones to return to its correct position.

  • As a qualified MST Practitioner, I seek out the actual cause of the dysfunction and treat the whole person by addressing the impact of all body systems. I strive to empower the client with knowledge - educating them on how to maintain correct body mechanics and good health. This gentle treatment is performed directly on the body or through light clothing. A treatment session may range from 45 – 60 minutes depending on the severity of the presenting condition. The initial consultation is comprehensive and takes approximately 75 min.

Myopractic may achieve positive results for the following conditions:

  • Musculoskeletal pain and injuries to Spine – Hips - Knees – Ankle - Neck – Jaw
  • Inflammation
  • Migraines & Headaches
  • Repetitive Strain Injury including: Carpal Tunnel; Plantar Fascitis; Frozen Shoulder
  • Fertility and hormonal concerns
  • Increasing Energy
  • Improving Overall Wellness
  • Enhancing Mobility

and by increasing the activity in level in the following systems:

  • Immune
  • Lymphatic
  • Circulatory
  • Respiratory
  • Nervous
  • Hormonal
  • Fertility

LYMPHATIC DRAINAGE MASSAGE

Manual Lymphatic Drainage massage (MLD) is a very specific technique applied to the body with specific timing, light pressure and direction of the Lymph fluid to enhance the function of the Lymphatic System and an extremely relaxing therapy to experience.

The Lymphatic system removes waste, toxins and excess protein from the arterial system, then cleanses the fluid in the Lymph nodes to isolate infection. The cleansed fluid is then returned back into the blood system.

Emil Vodder first used this technique to treat chronic sinusitis patients with successful results.
The application of this technique has grown into the Manual lymphatic drainage technique now used.

Benefits of receiving Manual Lymphatic Drainage Massage

  • Detoxifies the body.
  • Increases immunity.
  • Relaxes the muscle tissue pre surgery.
  • Relieves fluid retention post surgery, scarring, sprained, swollen ankles, legs, pregnancy.
  • Relieves Sinusitis/Hayfever.
  • Reduces Lymphoedema.
  • Musculoskeletal and connective tissue disorders.
  • Neurology: migraines, strokes.
  • Dermatology: eczema, acne vulgaris, psoriasis, seborrhoea.

Discussing your specific condition is advised before experiencing a MLD to ensure your symptoms are suitable for this type of treatment.


REMEDIAL MASSAGE

Deep tissue and trigger point massage is designed to relieve severe tension in the muscle and the connective tissue removing blockages, damaged cells, scar tissue and adhesions resulting from sports injuries and built up tension in muscles. This treatment assists with re-establishing overall balance and wellness within the musculoskeletal system. A combination of Myofascial cupping with remedial massage can also be beneficial. James Waslaski orthopedic workshop techniques are applied to resolve complicated shoulder, forearm, wrist and cervcal conditions.

A very holistic, simple and calming therapy to experience.

PRANIC HEALING

Pranic Healing is an ancient science and art of healing that uses Prana Life Force Energy (chi) to assist healing the physical body through the bioplasmic matter - energy body.

Pranic Healing is a non touch therapy that realigns the whole energy system to balance, prevent and alleviate a wide spectrum of physical, emotional and psychological ailments to improve a person’s health and wellbeing.

The Practitioner manipulates the chi throughout the various chakras within the body with the intention to remove contaminated energy for the body and replace it with revitalised fresh prana.

Pranic healing accelerates the natural healing of the body. Clients may sit or lay, fully clothed in a comfortable environment during treatment. Pranic Healing does not replace modern medicine. In fact, it can offer exceptional benefits when working together with modern medicine. Pranic Healing can assist with building immunity and alleviating:

  • Migraine Headaches
  • Sinusitis
  • Insomnia
  • Anxiety / Stress / Depression
  • Respiratory conditions
  • Circulatory conditions
  • Gastrointestinal aliments
  • Musculoskeletal pain
  • Endocrine dysfunction

REIKI

Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation assisting to promote healing. It is administered by "laying on hands" and is based on the idea that an unseen "life force energy" flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one's "life force energy" is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy.

The word Reiki is made of two Japanese words - Rei which means "God's Wisdom or the Higher Power" and Ki which is "life force energy".

A treatment feels like a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through and around you. Reiki treats the whole person including body, emotions, mind and spirit creating many beneficial effects that include relaxation and feelings of peace, security and wellbeing.

Reiki is a simple, natural and safe method of spiritual healing and self-improvement that everyone can use. It has been effective in alleviating illness and malady and always creates a beneficial effect. It also works in conjunction with all other medical or therapeutic techniques to relieve side effects and promote recovery.
