Her interest in Bowen stems from her passion for the bio-mechanics of movement and the sport of equestrian. Joanne established RideTherapy® 5 years ago which continues to provide incredible benefits for horses and people with disabilities.
Joanne’s skill set, her knowledge of functional anatomy and pathology and her extensive experience with proven patient outcomes offers you an effective, gentle, long lasting treatment to support structural alignment, healing and recovery.
What is Bowen Therapy?
Bowen Therapy treats the whole body for maximum results with minimal intervention and consists of a series of strategic gentle moves over muscle, ligament, tendon and skin.These moves aim to trigger and disrupt established patterns such as “pain loops”, and stimulate water/chemical flow which in turn can activate the body’s own resources for improved function and well being. Working with the body’s fascia (simply described as the “connective” tissues) there is opportunity to interact with all of the body’s systems. This assists with the treatment of general to chronic physical symptoms and diagnosed medical conditions as well as emotional and stress related concerns.
Bowen Therapy can be utilised in conjunction with other therapies (Physiotherapy, Osteopathy, Chiropractic and Naturopathic) or as a stand-alone treatment.
Bowen Therapy is safe for the whole family from newborns to the elderly, offering rapid and lasting relief from pain and discomfort.
