Discovering Bowen Therapy
Having been brought up in a medical family, and being a Registered Nurse myself, I knew very little about Natural Health. That all changed back in 1999 when I discovered the magic of Bowen with my, then, four year old daughter who had been suffering with recurrent ear infections and tonsillitis. Following a series of four Bowen treatments she was no longer tired and lethargic, her sleep improved beyond all measure, and she returned to being a bouncy bubbly energetic child – something that had been missing for a couple of years. And she still has her tonsils today! It was then my turn. The chronic lower back niggle that had been with me for several years disappeared, the seasonal hay fever that I dreaded each year was no longer troublesome, and the increase in energy was very welcome!
Learning Bowen Therapy
The opportunity to learn this amazing modality came simply because I made a passing comment to the practitioner. I like to consider myself a Millennium Bowen Baby as my learning of Bowtech Bowen Therapy began in July 2000 with Pauline Senior. The learning continues – every client who comes to my clinic is an opportunity for me to discover how a body can respond to this treatment.
My Bowen Clinic
In June 2008, I was offered another wonderful opportunity. Pauline was leaving the district and needed to sell her business – would I be interested? What an honour! Pauline’s clients became my clients, and I became a business owner. My passion for natural health began to develop further.
The clinic had a colon hydrotherapy machine, so I was trained to administer colonics, and this is becoming an increasingly popular treatment. I also completed a course in relaxation massage with the Naturopathic College of New Zealand in 2009 and a Certificate in Homeobotanicals in 2012.
In May 2018 I became a Bowtech Bowen Therapy Instructor myself. It’s great to be able to share my passion with others.
In May 2018, 10 years after beginning my business ownership journey, I relocated my clinic closer to Paraparaumu Township. You’ll now find me in my (very) green clinic on Kapiti Road.
