God said: Keep it burning.
I said: what about my heart?
God said: Tell me what you hold inside it?

I have always had a keen interest in the Human body, mind and Heart and how it all works, how it moves and its extraordinary ability to heal itself.
I was in the healthcare profession for many years which was very satisfying for me as it fulfilled my strong desire to be of service to others who were unwell in one way or another, unfortunately from many years of moving and handling people i developed problems with my back and it was from here that i discovered my passion for Yoga as this alleviated allot of my discomfort.
This passion took me to India for quite a few years where I was able to fully dive into a deep Yoga and meditation practice eventually training has a Hatha Yoga Teacher.
After I gave birth to my son the old back pain began to trouble me again which lead me on a search to find a treatment that was in line with my belief that the body has its own natural healing mechanisms and which was non invasive. I discovered the Bowen Technique through a recommendation and immediately i was impressed with its fundamental approach of Less is More and its honoring of the moving body and its innate wisdom to heal itself given the right conditions.
After a course of Bowen treatments i not only began to notice quite a significant difference in terms of pain but also as the layers of my chronic pain were peeled away in each Bowen treatment i began to learn why i had this pain and how certain ways of being continued to perpetuate it not only physically but emotionally and mentally as well.This was valuable and enlightening information that helped sharpen awareness of myself in a much more Holistic and integrated way.
Needless to say I had to learn more! and so i studied the Bowen Technique with the European College of Bowen Studies and became a practitioner which I find extremely interesting and rewarding.
The Bowen Technique really is a work in progress as it is forever evolving not only through my own continued studies of this subject but more so through the people i get the opportunity work with and give Bowen Treatments to everyday.
