I found my way to Melanie through my osteopath. I had been having treatment for a stiff neck (as I have done many times over the years) and as has sometimes happened over the years his treatment was a little too “severe” and I ended up feeling more sore and “clunky” than I had before I went. I mentioned to him that I thought I needed to have a break from osteopathy for a while and thought that I’d try Bowen as I’d had some success with it in the past and he suggested I visit Melanie rather than visit my normal chap in Exeter. What an excellent recommendation that turned out to be! The combination of her amazing, intuitive Energy Healing and Bowen work really well together, and the whole experience was very calming and soothing (just what I needed at the time J) and far more supportive than just the clinical Bowen that I had experienced before. It has also proved to be hugely effective. I only had three treatments over about 6 weeks and as well as fixing my sore neck and clunky joints she helped with my night sweats and other perimenopause symptoms. But most importantly she gently helped me to come to terms with some huge anger issues that I was clinging on to, encouraged me to start meditating and to try to “surrender” to life as it is and give my body a chance to start healing. I followed all her advice and I’m very pleased to report that I’m feeling so much better, pretty impressive considering I only went to see her about my sore neck lol. Great job, lovely lady, will not hesitate to visit her again whenever I need some TLC.
I am writing to thank you for the work you are doing with me . As you know I have been diagnosed with fibromyalgia for many years my symptoms include extreme exhaustion, chronic-body wide pain, and swelling of my hands feet and legs, IBS, chronic headaches, cognitive memory Impairment especially under stress. Sensitivity to bright lights, some foods and medications, difficulty achieving restful sleep. Life felt like an up-hill struggle. I do not respond well to medications to relieve these symptoms.
However since I commenced receiving regular Bowen and Energy work treatments with you I find great relief from all of my symptoms, and can enjoy a more fulfilling life style. I look forward to our sessions and sharing ideas and thoughts with you.
I know that Bowen treatments can help many conditions and would recommend that people talk to you for advice and information.

I could fully place my trust in Melanie and just let go into her healing hands. I’ve tried different therapies but this is one of the most effective. Melanie creates an environment where you feel like you’re wrapped in a cocoon of love and care, and this greatly aids the healing process.

My name is Sunyata and I am 39 years old. I received a treatment from Melanie after I twisted my ankle and could hardly walk. It was about one week after it happened. The treatment was very gentle and in the same day I felt a very significant improvement: I could walk better and what I noticed was that I felt more confident to step on the leg. It wasn’t that I thought about it or anything like that; it was my body/leg that felt confidence as strange as it may sound. Later on Melanie explained that it is exactly because the body was sort of rearranged. The next day there was more improvement and suddenly I noticed that I walk without planning my steps for the first time.
During the treatment I felt very relaxed and that I can completely trust Melanie – she was so gentle and explained what she was doing. Her caring and loving touch and her whole attitude was so deep and supportive. At one point when she instructed me something like to let go into her holding my leg I felt embraced in such a way that I could let go of my control (which is one of my biggest issues) and felt my heart opening and tears came to my eyes. I want to emphasize that I feel that it is not only the technique that works but the way Melanie is delivering it.
It was a very meaningful experience beyond the immediate healing needed for my ankle.
Thank you dear Melanie and I highly recommend having this treatment
With Love and Gratitude
A childhood illness left me with chest problems and now in my sixties I have a constant battle with lung infections. I find regular Bowen treatment helps to ease tension in the chest muscles and lymphatic drainage helps to remove residue from the antibiotics and other medication. When I met Melanie a few years ago I immediately felt she understood my condition and her caring and conscientious approach has been rewarding.

I was so interested in the Tarot reading today—I have been so excited and looking forward to it and you did not disappoint! It reinforced a lot of where I’ve been, where I’m at and was optimistic for the future—with life bumps in the road.
You were really clear with the explanations and what you understood to be there. I could tell you put a lot of thought into the cards before we met, and I appreciated your care and open-mindedness as you laid them out. And also your curiosity to look further without jumping to conclusions. I feel these traits will stand you in good stead as you continue this practice.
Your approach, as more of a coach, is well-suited, I think, as it’s more pragmatic, less esoteric with the interaction with the client. I can imagine it helps you too, as you see things when you lay out the cards, and they develop a deeper/clearer meaning when mixed with the client’s input.
Thank you for the time and energy you put into my reading today, and I look forward to listening to the recording as I look at the cards. It’s great you sent both of those to me—modern technology expands an old ritual. Brilliant really.
