Bowen Technique

Bowen Therapy is a subtle muscle/nerve/connective tissue technique developed in Australia by Tom Bowen . The work is gentle, non-invasive and performed through the clothing. It consists of a specific sequence of gentle, rolling "moves" done across superficial muscles, tendons and nerves.. The results are profound and lasting, and usually apparent within two or three sessions.

Bowen Therapy is a completely new concept in bodywork. It is neither derived from nor similar to any other physical modality. Unlike massage or other manipulations that try to force a change, Bowen simply resets your body to heal itself.

Although extremely gentle, these stimulations are so powerful that it's necessary to let the patient rest and "cook" a few minutes between segments in order that they completely integrate the neurological changes. The entire process is so soothing that most patients will fall asleep at least once during the session.

Breema Bodywork™ and Self-Breema™

Breema is an ancient system which reached the Western world two decades ago. Its discovery has profoundly transformed the lives and health of the rapidly widening circle of people who have studied and received it. Breema is based on a revolutionary understanding of the Universal principles which govern life and health, and is the simplest, most natural form of touch and body movement.

There are two branches of Breema. One is the bodywork the other is the Self-Breema exercises. The aim of both is to enhance the flow of life energy and bring one to the present. Breema treatments are practiced on a padded floor, with the recipient comfortably dressed. The method uses comfortably supported movements including firm yet gentle stretches, precise and gradual leans into the muscles, nurturing brushes and holding postures and a wide variety of playfully rhythmic movements.

Breath Therapy

The Buteyko Method

The Buteyko Method (The Breath Connection Method) is a system of breathing analysis and correction that helps you achieve good health through optimum breathing as discovered, researched and taught by Professor Buteyko.

It is a safe and effective way to relieve and prevent asthma as evidenced by the Australian clinical trial at the Mater Hospital in Brisbane in 1994 and the Victoria University trail in 1999. It corrects the common condition of hyperventilation or over-breathing, obvious (acute) or hidden (chronic) by using breath control, breathing exercises and education to help sufferers understand their condition, control symptoms and prevent illness.

The method is learnt through individual consultations and group sessions with a trained practitioner. Buteyko clients are instructed to recognise their overbreathing pattern and to retrain and recondition their breathing to normal levels.

The Buteyko Method is especially designed to help sufferers of asthma, emphysema, bronchitis and other chronic respiratory ailments. It also helps people suffering of insomnia, allergies, psychosomatic and stress related disorders or seeking to improve performance in singing, dance or sport.
