Q What is Holistic Coaching?
A. Holistic Coaching incorporates the whole of you, a bespoke treatment nurturing your mind, body and spirit. It includes sharing in a held space to discuss anything that is bothering you and receiving healing, whether that is reiki, guided meditation, or relaxation techniques.
Q What is the main purpose of coaching?
A. To have a guide supporting and empowering you through a situation or block that is bothering you and preventing you from moving forward. Because sometimes it is harder to do things alone, coaching can be a quicker way to receive results.
Q What is Bowen Technique?
A. Fascia alignment technique that is relaxing and aims to unravel restriction and tension within fascia, fascia envelops muscles, ligaments, joints and nerves.
Q How many sessions do I need?
A. Results are usually seen in 1 session, however to avoid set backs, initially a few close together can support with momentum. You can then return for top ups or preventative relaxation. It also depends how you unravel and how you open to the support.
Q Tell me more about the sciency part of Bowen
A. As a challenge is placed on a muscle and the muscle is gently stretched, stretch receptors begin to send sensory info along the nerve pathway to the spinal cord. During or after the move, further sensory info is sent via nerve to the spinal cord and then various areas of the brain.
It works on fascia which envelops all the body systems, thus it benefits the entire body
Fascia is this beautiful web underneath the skin that is protecting all of our cells, joints, muscles, nerves and ligaments, like a big t-shirt but from top to toe.
Q How is Bowen Therapy different from osteopathy or a chiropractor ?
A. All these therapies are excellent, but Bowen differs in several respects. Osteo and chiros often use adjustments or ‘cracks’ to realign the structure of the body. They will make a diagnosis and treat the area of concern. With bowen therapy the therapist will take a case history and the body is treated as a whole unit, rather than an isolated problem. Bowen encourages the body’s own healing mechanism through complete relaxation.
Q What if any are the side effects to your treatments?
A. It does vary, as we are all unique, but mostly you will feel brighter, lighter and more relaxed. Some sessions their can be a release of emotion, so you may want to take it a bit more gentle directly after a session.
Q Why are your treatment times approx?
A. Because I love to treat for value, rather than per minute, sometimes my big generous heart goes over the allocated time if its needed, sometimes actually a shorter session is all the body can handle at this time of your healing. Everyone is unique, and has different needs at different times. I honour that rather than squishing into boxes.
Q Is Bowen Therapy safe?
A. Absolutely, Bowen is so relaxing it can be used to treat babies, the elderly, those in pain, with new acute injuries and in pregnancy.
Q I have an injury, is it okay to see you right away?
A. Yes, (if you have a suspected broken bone you would go to A&E or in a real life threatening emergency then call 999). For new acute injuries then do come asap. I can offer emergency same day appointments where possible. Bowen therapy will help take the shock out of the body and initiate restoring healing quickly. Bowen is very relaxing and safe and there are no forceful manipulations. See my injury tips here.

A. You can email me on email@example.com, text or call me 07815834861 or book directly on my fresha page here.
Please note if you private message me on Facebook or Instagram, I might not see it as quickly as a call or email.
Q Where can I find you?

Q What is reiki?
A. Reiki is universal energy delivered to you from spirit guides and angels. If you feel stuck, stagnant, not sure which decision to make, it is the perfect relaxing healing session. It can involve using crystals and energy to unblock chakra points, leaving you feeling peaceful, revived and clear.
Q What are the risks of reiki?
A. Reiki is a non-invasive light, or no touch therapy which is very relaxing. It can be incredibly powerful, so sometimes emotions are bought to the surface and released. Sometimes messages can come through which can bring up the truth, these messages are always for your highest intention and come from guides that want the best for you. You then have the decision what to do with the information, so healing comes from your own empowerment.
Q How do you balance hormones?
A. I have received specific training in hormone balancing with Bowen technique. It works on the same principle as an injury, so focusing on aligning fascia relaxing and balancing you.
Q What are your qualifications?
A. I have a BSc health sciences 2:1 degree in Complementary Therapies oooooo! I learnt tons about anatomy, pathology, reflexology. I then went on to train in facials, Bowen technique, reiki, hormone balancing, Mbit coaching and Holistic coaching.
