About Angela

Specifically for Bowen

The Bowen technique itself is a powerful, yet gentle and unique form of holistic remedial bodywork. Potentially any problem can be addressed, it is effective at relieving and, or resolving a wide range of health problems, including injuries, trauma either emotional or physical, chronic and painful conditions and skeletal disorders. 

Utilising Angela’s range of skills and knowledge of Bowen, focused moves are made at specific points on the body, Angela then uses specific neurological techniques and energy work to reset, realign and recalibrate the body, paying particular focus to the nervous system and any blocks or patterns held in the soft tissue. Angela addresses the person as a whole, with the intent to heal beyond the presenting symptoms, restoring health and well being to the persons mind, body and spirit.

Most sessions last approximately 45-60 minutes.  In the first session an in depth history and assessment will be made and the clients expectations discussed.

The client will usually be asked to lay on a couch, however they can be seated if necessary for comfort. Relaxed and comfortable clothing such as a t- shirt and tracksuit bottoms or underwear can be worn.

Specifically, for Vagus Nerve Therapy:

Angela has had a long-held fascination for this aspect of our nervous system. Utilising her knowledge, she incorporates physical moves to release and reset the sympathetic nervous system (our fight and flight response) and then using specific physical moves, sound frequency and energy healing to rejuvenate and reset the parasympathetic nervous system ( responsible for our rest, digest and repair functions and state of being). Creating equilibrium once more within the body and fields. 

The Vagus Nerve, which runs from our brain to our stomach and is connected to most of our major organs, is key to our ability to rest, digest and repair. This therapy can assist you physically, mentally, and emotionally, restoring harmony and synergy to the mind, body and spirit.

You will feel lighter, relaxed, and restored following a treatment. These are approximately 50 minutes long and are normally done on a couch but can also be done seated in a therapy chair, which ever is most comfortable for the client.
