Bowen Therapy FAQ
What can I expect during a Bowen treatment?
I will take your full health history at the first appointment. This is time well spent, as it is often here that your real problems are identified. This allows me to identify and treat the cause of the problem not just the symptoms. Many people usually become very relaxed right away, and even fall asleep during the treatment. Try to wear something lightweight and non-slippery.
What should I wear for a Bowen treatment?
Bowen can be carried out through light clothing. Try to wear something lightweight and non-slippery. A cotton T-shirt and thin trousers are ideal. If you are wearing bulky items such as jumpers or coats you will be asked to remove them.
How many treatments will I need to have?
Everyone responds differently so it is impossible to say. Some problems need more treatments and some less. Many people find it beneficial to have top-up treatments thus preventing injury and maintaining a supple, healthy,relaxed body and mind.
Should I have Bowen therapy if I am pregnant?
Absolutely, Bowen therapy will help you by alleviating many symptoms that you may experience during your pregnancy. It can also help to prepare your body for the labour, by releasing the muscles allowing for an easier birth, with no tearing. If required, Bowen therapy can be used to induce labour if you go over the term of your pregnancy. After your pregnancy, Bowen therapy is beneficial for returning your organs back to their original position, giving you more energy to enjoy your new life with your baby.
How many treatments will I need to have?
Everyone responds differently so it is impossible to say. Some problems need more treatments and some less. Many people find it beneficial to have top-up treatments thus preventing injury and maintaining a supple, healthy and relaxed body. Gentle stretching exercises, such as Yoga, are often beneficial when practised in conjunction with the treatment.
It is hard to imagine…. from conception to the present day, every breath, every movement is stored in your body in your muscle memory.
For instance, if you think about starting a new job and feel nervous about that, your muscles reflect this stress. If we change the neurological pattern then the thought pattern is influenced to change and the change of thought pattern is reflected back to the physical in the muscles and entire body.
Muscle testing uncovers both neurological and organic imbalances in the body. By combining Eastern philosophy of Chinese meridian techniques, with western techniques of osteopathic and counselling modalities, with both hemispheres of your brain (left or logical, side and right creative / intuitive side) working in harmony, emotional/mental issues can be addressed.
Kinesiology creates an efficiency of neurological function, through bodywork referring back into the nervous system, using acupressure and muscle checks.
Kinesiology can also assist in reducing stress and supporting new behaviours, integrating your health on all levels - body, mind and spirit.
When the body and brain are working together, the benefits can be surprisingly quick and long lasting.
Areas where kinesiology can support better health include:
Easing stress and pain
Boosting health and well being
Creating an abundance of energy
Producing enhanced clarity of mind
Increasing mental and physical performance
Alleviating depression, grief and anxiety
Overcoming nutritional deficiencies

What Happens In A Kinesiology Session?
Melissa will take a thorough case history of both your physical and emotional health issues, talking about areas she can help you with. Melissa will then spend a few minutes explaining kinesiology and how it works and then will spend the remainder of the session working with you and your body to experience the amazing tool that is kinesiology. During a kinesiology session you lie on a comfortable massage table fully clothed while Melissa uses a simple muscle test with your arm to access your own innate wisdom. Clients often comment on feeling deeply relaxed during and after the session.
What is muscle testing?
Kinesiology muscle testing is a scientific yet energetic way to pinpoint where the energy block is in the body’s different structures, therefore discovering underlying causes to conditions. Muscle testing is done by the client holding their arm in a position, the practitioner then applies gentle pressure which the client resists. The intelligence of the body communicates to the practitioner literally by the way in which the client’s arm responds.

Massage Therapy FAQ
How Does Massage Work?
Remedial massage works by releasing your aching and/or tight muscle groups, tendons and ligaments. Your remedial massage will increase your circulation which improves your healing ability and provides suppleness to the muscles, giving them a greater range of movement, this reduces the risk of future injury and illness. This will help your body to restore to its optimum level of function, promoting a lighter, healthier feeling overall.
Why choose massage?
Touch is one of the most crucial, yet often underrated, of the senses - all ages benefit from human touch. Massage has been shown to benefit the body on a number of levels because it relaxes and revitalises a weary or ailing body through a reassuring and caring touch.
Many studies have proven that massage promotes state of mind and mood-altering serotonin and endorphins. Endorphins are chemicals that affect development in children, as well as, improving emotional and physical well-being in adults.
How Does Massage Improve Health?
Massage has been shown to reduce blood pressure, relieve arthritis, and improve joint and muscle aches especially in painful areas of the neck and back, and even increase immunity to colds and flu!
A powerful tool for relaxing the body, calming the mind, increasing body awareness and empowering self-healing, it can help you connect to yourself, leaving you feeling refreshed and un-distracted.
