Details On These Treatments Below:

Pregnancy & Birth

Pre-conception:

Bowen can help by regulating the menstrual cycle and enhancing fertility in both Men and Women. It brings about a state of balance in the nervous system and can release areas that are blocked or unable to function optimally.

1st Trimester:

Bowen can help with fatigue, anxiety, nausea, morning sickness and emotional fluctuations associated with hormone changes, assisting the body to adapt to this new and fast-changing state.

2nd & 3rd Trimester:

The Bowen Technique is very helpful in relieving lower back pain, sciatica, swollen legs and ankles, cramps, gastric discomfort, breathing, heartburn, and reflux. As the pregnancy nears its conclusion, Bowen sessions can relieve uncomfortable pelvic pressure, varicose veins, hemorrhoids, aching feet, legs, and groin. It can also help in optimizing fetal position prior to birth and even change the babies presentation during birth.

During Labour:

Bowen moves performed on a woman in labour helps the process by relaxing pelvic muscles, ligaments and soft tissue. This allows the babies head to move deeper into the birth canal. It also helps in managing the discomfort as the intensity of each contraction increases and enhances your ability to relax, focus and feel more comfortable. Bowen can also make you feel more confident to move around, change positions and relax during contractions. Bowen can also be used as a natural induction of labour.

Post-Natal Care and Healing:

As the Bowen moves stimulate the bodies own innate abilities to heal itself and because it is so gentle and non-invasive, it can be used immediately after giving birth, after a cesarean or for perineal healing and pain relief post-delivery. It helps to reset the position of the pelvis, helping the uterus to return to its normal position and strengthens and regulates your body.

Breast Feeding:

There are specific moves to promote lactation and also moves for upper back, shoulder and neck pain often experienced during breast feeding. It can also help you to sleep better, feel rested and ready for all those new mum challenges.

TMD Postnatal Massage:

During a woman’s life many changes are seen in her body. The biggest changes happen when she becomes pregnant. To support the baby inside her lots of things happen, including opening of the pelvis, movement of internal organs to make room for baby as it grows, and a softening of cartilage that holds the pelvis together. After having a baby, with Vaginal or Cesarean birth, all of these adjustments don’t suddenly fall back into place.

A TMD Postnatal Massage gently softens tissue that has formed during pregnancy and lifts the uterus back up and lets the bowel, kidneys, liver, ovaries and other organs return to their normal place within the abdominal cavity.

On top of the physical aspects of this treatment, you will also get a feeling of balance and calm within your body that allows you to focus on looking after baby rather than over worrying about your own body.

During the treatment you will receive a mixture of traditional South American Rebozo techniques, Aromatherapy Oil Massage and Bowen Fascial Release Technique.

Indian Head Massage

An Indian head massage stimulates the flow of blood, lymph and oxygen in your upper body, and therefore may clear your sinuses, relieve stress and help you sleep better.

Aromatherapy

Aromatherapy is a holistic healing treatment that uses natural plant extracts to promote health and well-being. Sometimes it’s called essential oil therapy. Aromatherapy uses aromatic essential oils medicinally to improve the health of the body, mind, and spirit. It enhances both physical and emotional health.

Aromatherapy is thought of as both an art and a science. Recently, aromatherapy has gained more recognition in the fields of science and medicine.

Humans have used aromatherapy for thousands of years. Ancient cultures in China, India, Egypt, and elsewhere incorporated aromatic plant components in resins, balms, and oils. These natural substances were used for medical and religious purposes. They were known to have both physical and psychological benefits.

Essential oils distillation is attributed to the Persians in the 10th century, though the practice may have been in use for a long time prior to this. Information about essential oil distillation was published in the 16th century in Germany. French physicians in the 19th century recognized the potential of essential oils in treating disease.

Medical doctors became more established in the 19th century and focused on using chemical drugs. However, the French and German doctors still recognized the role of natural botanicals in treating illness.

The term “aromatherapy” was coined by a French perfumer and chemist René-Maurice Gattefossé in a book he wrote on the topic that was published in 1937. He had previously discovered the healing potential of lavender in treating burns. The book discusses the use of essential oils in treating medical conditions.

Aromatherapy works through the sense of smell and skin absorption using products such as these:

Diffusers

Aromatic spritzers

Inhalers

Bathing salts

Body oils, creams, or lotions for massage or topical application

Facial steamers

Hot and cold compresses

Clay masks

You can use these alone or in any combination.

___

There are nearly one hundred types of essential oils available. Generally, people use the most popular oils.

Each essential oil has an array of unique healing properties, uses, and effects. Combining essential oils to create a synergistic blend creates even more benefits.
