Smart Bowen Therapy is a dynamic bodywork technique that can be applied remedially or holistically. It is relatively gentle and can be very relaxing. It empowers the body's own healing resources achieving balance and harmony, resulting in fast and lasting relief from pain and discomfort. Bowen is an all embracing vibrational medicine therapy, safe to use on any person or animal, from newborns to the elderly, with positive responses to sports injuries, acute or chronic, and organic complaints. The "Basic Bowen Move" is a transverse soft tissue manoeuvre. These specialized moves are applied at specific point locations over muscles, tendons, ligaments and fascia, bringing about a window of opportunity to promote homeostasis of the body tissues and systems. In my Smart Bowen Therapy we are rolling and stretching the connective tissue called fascia which envelopes all of our organs and muscles. We do a 90 degree cross fibre move over the muscles, tendons and ligaments we wish to have effect upon. In doing so we hydrate the body and raise the fascia up enough to allow toxins to be released. We are working on the meridians and trigger points at the same time and this is why my combined therapies are so effective. Please note, I remain in the room at all times and stop only long enough to make notes within my paperwork of my treatment of you.
Applied Myoskeletal Therapy was developed by Australian Soft-Tissue Therapist, John Gafield. It is a gentle, relaxing and effective, non-oil soft-tissue therapy for the assessment, treatment and management of soft tissue injury, pain and dysfunction of the musculoskeletal system. It contains transverse soft-tissue moves, along with a wide variety of muscle releases involving various sustained holds to treat soft-tissue dysfunction. It has provided me with crucial structural assessments along with the skills to correct the dysfunction that I observe in your body. Furthermore, I will teach you Neuromuscular Re-education Exercises which have outstanding effects for chronic pain conditions.
TMJ Foundation was developed by NST Health instructor Ron Phelan. Ron’s interest in the TMD, was inspired by training taken in the USA with master orthodontist, Dr. Brendan Stack of the USA in 2008. Dr. Stack has been successfully treating movement disorders, Tourette’s syndrome, Parkinson’s disease and other symptomatic conditions by the TMJ (Temporomandibular joint). For proper function of the TMJ, the jaw must be in a “Centric Relationship”. As a TMJ specialist I am trained to align your jaw using kinesiology to put it into this correct position. The concept of “Centric Relationship” entails 2 positional relationships. The position of the condyle and the position of the disk relative to the condyle and articular eminence.
Dorn Method Therapy was developed by Dieter Dorn in the 1970's in the South of Germany. It is a holistic, effective, safe and non-manipulative therapy to correct misalignments in the spine and joints. It is considered a True Self Help Method as I will teach you how to continue treating yourself at home. It can help with back pain, sciatica, scoliosis, neck and joint pains, migraine, hip problems and all chronic inner conditions (as we work over the Meridians). In the Dorn Method, the patient learns about the cause of problems, receives a gentle, safe and very effective treatment and then learns how to continue the therapy for lasting results on his/her own with simple self help exercises that require little time. So, in principle, as a Dorn Spinal Therapy Practitioner, I am teaching someone how to apply the Dorn Method and, therefore, can be considered more a Health Coach rather than a Therapist. Our Spinal Column is the main 'highway' of our Nervous System that connects the brain with all other areas of the human body. All body functions are stirred and leveled through a network of nerves distributed through the spine. Any misalignment (subluxations) will have a negative influence that may result in pain either acute or chronic and most other inner conditions due to an 'out of balance' structural system with tensed muscles and stressed tissues and nerves will cause the human organism as a whole to be affected.
Spring Forest Qigong was developed by Master Chunyi Lin who I studied with in Sydney for Level One. His vision is for "a healer in every home and a world without pain and suffering." Qi means "energy" and Gong means "to work with" so simply put Qigong means working with the body's energy. I use Qigong healing in my practice and use it on your body to help expediate your healing during my two rest periods where during my Smart Bowen Open and Close back procedures I allow you to rest whilst letting your body reset. Spring Forest Qigong helped heal the hundreds of lesions I had on my brain some of which affected my motor cortex causing me to walk into things. After attending this weekend workshop which I was healed and taught to heal others, I came back and no longer walked into things. It is a powerful healing modality for which I am grateful to have experienced and learnt. If you wish to experience how this works, please watch this demo https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zbr_vJNlhko.
Scientific Hand Analysis has always been of interest to me since I was introduced to it at the age of 16 and has become of greater interest since discovering that our bodies are actually a map. This is my belief and it was confirmed to me when I met Heidi Hirschy and I described to her a lifetime pain that I had in my calf and when she asked me if there was anything that I did to ease my pain I told her that I massaged the inside of my heel which brought relief to me. Once she got me on the table she told me that my coccyx was out and that normally she would not treat this on the first time of meeting someone, but she knew I was in a lot of pain and so I gave her permission to do so. Like a miracle overnight my pain I had suffered with for 42 years disappeared overnight. Two years later my daughters bought me reflexology magnets of hands and feet and I was surprised to learn that the inside of my heel represented the coccyx! More recently, when studying hand analysis on my own, I discovered a small mark on my hand that indicated a problem with my eyes. I went to a new optometrist who informed me that I had cataracts in both eyes. This confirmed to me that our bodies are maps and I am intrigued to learn more. I am studied Soul Pyschology through Hand Analysis with Life Purpose Academy. As Hand Analysts we see the prints in your hands as an acorn, the seed of what you are to become. It answers the question of "Why Am I Here?" We can see what your Life Purpose is, what Life Lessons you are facing that are holding you back, how you see Life, what your personality type is and much more. If this is of interest to you, then please ask me about it.
