I am trying to get pregnant
At a time when you really want something to happen and it’s not happening can be very frustrating, especially when it feels others are popping out babies left, right and centre. Some women find it difficult to open up about to challenges here, but you are not alone and I am here to support you step-by-step.
Firstly and very importantly, lets take all the stress away and focus on relaxing you. Relaxation allows restoration & repair.
We begin by balancing the body with 2-4 treatments, promoting relaxation, addressing mind and body symptoms and discussing and finding solutions for any barriers.
Then the fertility protocol as below:
1 x treatment, 1 week before menses
1 x treatment, during menses
1 x treatment at start of your next cycle
1 x treatment before anticipated ovulation
This cycle of 4 may need to be repeated each week.
8 sessions at £305

I am pregnant
After the first trimester Bowen can be delivered throughout pregnancy for sciatica pain relief, lower back pain relief and relaxation.
From week 32 – 40+ the focus is on aligning the pelvis for birth, nip early depression in the bud, and support with breech or overdue babies.
For irritable symptoms, 2-4 Bowen treatments are recommended, 1 week apart, dependent on symptoms and can be discussed.
I am also happy to offer you hot stone massage and or maternity reflexology. We can discuss your tailored treatments should you have any queries on the best choice here.

I just had a baby
This can be a beautiful, surreal time when everything feels new and a bit wobbly as there are big changes in your life and your body.
3 weeks after labour a postnatal check is suggested, typically 2 treatments are best to realign the body, very often the pelvis can be affected after labour, thus affecting lower back and jaw.
I aim to balance hormones, provide relaxation and provide healing support with any bladder issues.
Of course, the trickiest part here is leaving the new-born for an hour to see me, but if you need support, then I’m here. I would suggest more practically 1-2 sessions of Bowen could support here, for a simple tune up with alignment.
Bowen Technique for natural hormone balance
Bowen Technique is a relaxing Soft tissue technique where gentle rolling moves are made over precise points of the body, delivering a rolling type moves over your skin, working over muscles, fascia, ligaments and nerves. This sends neurological impulses to the brain, creating a vibrational pattern that re-aligns the musculoskeletal system, balances all body systems and promotes repair and restoration.
The body is able to hold the new pattern that Bowen imprints, releasing pain and compensation patterns. The improvement can hold for weeks, months, years or indefinitely, depending on the individual and their lifestyle.

I worked with Emily when I had back pain and fertility issues. My husband and I had been TTC for 18 months and although there was ‘nothing wrong’ in testing it was taking a long time. And caused a lot of stress, especially for me. I felt that hormonally things weren’t right as I’d been diagnosed with PCOS previously. Over time working with Emily I learnt to relax, entering her haven of a treatment room was a breath of fresh air. I felt truly cared for and listened to each time. We did a mix of Bowen treatments and reflexology mainly (although she adapted beautifully according to my needs during each session). After some time my back pain was gone and we started really focusing on the fertility. After two of the fertility protocols, I couldn’t have been more elated and surprised to find we were pregnant!!! The next month we were due to start more invasive treatment so this came in the Nick of time!!! I can’t even express my gratitude 🙏 to anyone who’s in a similar position, trust the process, trust Emily 💕💕 She’s amazing!!! Like Austin was born during Covid on 01/07/20 and is the happiest most laid back boy ever-fairly sure that’s a dose from Emily too 😉 can’t recommend enough!!
I hadn’t had reflexology before and wanted to try pregnancy reflexology, Emily was really great and explained it all to me and the treatment was so relaxing and Emily was extremely informative afterwards too. I would highly recommend!
I help women reduce menopausal symptoms by balancing hormones using a relaxing realignment technique.
Hormone balancing or hormone release technique works naturally without synthetic hormones through relaxation and nudging the body gently into harmony. Alignment takes place over the coccyx and TMJ, which support the pituitary gland & hypothalamus to soften & regulate.
The ovaries & uterus are also worked over to provide a balanced happy body (these points are accessed over the abdomen in a non-invasive way)
Bowen technique works directly over fascia, a web like substance that surrounds all tissues, cells, muscles & joints.
