Bowen Technique is a remedial, hands-on therapy that is applied using very gentle pressure. I use my thumbs and fingers on precise points of the body to perform unique sets of rolling-type moves which stimulate the muscles and soft tissue of the body. There is no manipulation or adjustment of hard tissue and no force is used. The treatment experience is gentle, subtle and relaxing. It is believed that the Bowen Technique prompts the body to reset, repair and balance itself and clients report the experience of pain relief, improvement of function and recovery of energy. read more

I trained at the New Zealand college of Massage in 1998 after my husband was left in chronic pain after a back injury. Its difficult to describe my style of massage because I use a range of tecniques, including pressure points, lymphatic drainage and different friction. This releases tension and relieves pain. By working with the body as a whole, I can see what is going on with each person and achieve the best results.
What my clients say...
I have been coming to Elaine for about 8 years now. She is amazing! What I love is that she has the ability to know exactly what treatment my body needs on any given day, and she is always bang on. Its always a pleasure to see her, her instinct is incredible, - I trust her completely so much I have recommended her to many people - Go and see her!
I have been going to Bowen therapy since 2010. Initially I went as a measure of desperation as I had extremely bad health and no diagnosis or treatment was available via mainstream medicine. I was pleasantly surprised to feel a profound change within myself. Over time Bowen has made a significant difference to my ability to manage my symptoms.
At the beginning of 2012 I was diagnosed with Connective Tissue Disease/Disorder which is a genetic malfunction of the connective tissue. This explained why Bowen therapy had such an enormously beneficial effect for me.
My experience of Bowen therapy is cumulative and substantive. During the pauses following a series of moves I sometimes feel my fascia moving with a gentle tugging or rolling action, which builds slowly, peaks and subsides. I have also experienced sensations of heat rolling upwards through my body. I have also experienced direct changes in my emotional health: feelings of wellbeing, contentment and optimism. Long terms gains include reduced pain and improved health, improvements to digestion and sleep, greater tolerance of my environment, a reduction in the severity and frequency of migraines and improved balance.
