What does it mean to listen to your body?
Body awareness and listening to your body, can mean….
♥ Feeling connected and settled within your own skin suit.
♥ Listening to what is going on with your body, i.e where are the aches, tension, does something not feel right.
♥ Feeling grounded with who you are 🙂
♥ Feeling more grounded into your environment, ahhhh
♥ Recognising your limits and understanding when to stop when close to burn out.
♥ Honouring your energy patterns and cycles, i.e. some days we are more hungry, some days we are more tired.
♥ Feeling more in tuned with your period cycles

The benefits of listening to your body?
♥ It is easier to relax as you are, into your skinsuit, with all your imperfections 😉
♥ It is easier to love yourself as you are and to honour your uniqueness
♥ You understand the areas more prone to illness ⇒ which means you can strengthen those areas.
♥ Better understanding of the areas more prone to illness = using them as a sign that you might be doing too much/managing stress.
♥ You feel clearer about what your body needs, knowing when to seek support.
♥ You are able to rest, be still and sleep more easily
♥ It may reduce the time and severity of acute illness
♥ Less likely to have emotions harbouring away in our muscle memory, which may lead to further complications physically.
♥ Better understanding of others
How I support you to feel more body aware and listen to your body
Bowen Technique and reiki treatments
♥ Relaxation♥ Firstly taking time out to really allow your body and mind to have a recharge, a re-set and feel more at ease. Bowen is wonderfully soothing to all ailments and calms down the nervous system, so your body can feel relaxed.
♥ I check and feedback on postural habits, anything out of alignment, weaker or tension in a particular body area. We then work together to understand previous injuries/traumas, looking at your lifestyle and how you carry yourself into the world.
The therapies themselves can free up restrictions, re-align, reduce pain, soothe emotional stress and provide relaxation.
♥ After receiving a series of treatments, you then have the knowledge of which areas need strengthening and are encouraged to find an exercise you enjoy.
