Massage Therapist in Romsey

I first became aware of The Bowen Technique from a work colleague in London in 2001 after sustaining whip lash from a car accident. I had 3 initial sessions and then decided to have more because I felt so much better and really enjoyed the treatments. Bowen really helped releave the pain and symptoms I had suffered and continued to help me feel strong and well balanced mentally and physically. My therapist was my inspiration to train to be a Bowen Therapist myself and I owe that to her as a special person at that time in my life, thank you Hella.

My personal objective is to try to help people from pain and suffering both mentally and physically.
My main modality is The Bowen Technique because it works at a cellular level and helps revive the whole body.
It's a wonderfully relaxing form of body work to give and receive - I love it, my kids love it, my husband loves it and so does our dog!

Approach to Therapy & How I Work

I like to build a personal rapport with my clients so they feel happy and relaxed throughout the experience with me. I listen to what you say and tailor my treatments to suit you.

At the beginning of a treatment we talk about what you are hoping to get from your sessions with me. Often this can involve looking at your frame to assess how you stand and there can be some light examining type exercises to see where the restrictions are in shoulders, arms, neck, back etc.
If you are having a Bowen session you can receive the treatment through light clothing. Generally it begins with receiving treatment lying on your front and then turning over and lying on your back. Sometimes treatment is given sitting up or off the couch leaning against the wall or sitting in a chair. Between certain moves there will be some small breaks to allow your body to 'think' about what is happening and make any initial changes. Sometimes these can be dramatic and others very subtle. If you are needing more time and time is available you get time. A session is usually 60mins and clients are asked to agree to a minimum of 3 weekly sessions to be able to feel the full potential benefit. Follow on treatments are recommended after 3 weeks and then if all going well from then on at 4-6 weekly intervals for 'top ups' or sometimes longer depending on the severity of the initial condition.
