About Bowen Therapy & the Emmett Technique
What Bowen Therapy & the Emmett Technique are not:
There are many theories about how Bowen Therapy and the Emmett Technique work and ongoing research continues in understanding these simple and amazing therapies. They are holistic addressing the whole body and not just the area of pain or injury. Research shows that the Bowen moves release energy, reduce muscle spasms, increase blood supply and lymphatic drainage, and clear toxins from the body.
Bowen Therapy is a soft tissue therapy that was developed by the late Tom Bowen in Geelong, Australia. It is a powerful form of bodywork that balances & stimulates energy flows resulting in a deep sense of overall relaxation. It is holistic addressing the whole body and not just the area of pain or injury.
Depending on the indications of the assessments, the Therapist will make a series of varying pressures of moves at specific points of the body. Stimulus is received by the nervous system and the appropriate tension is made in the skeletal muscles, their tendons, and joints.
The Emmett Technique is a safe and simple muscle release therapy developed by Remedial Therapist Ross Emmett.
It is used to address pain and discomfort, improve body movement and can restore a positive emotional state.
It can be used alone or used seamlessly with any other bodywork therapy to enhance its performance. The client can be seated or lying down fully clothed. For this reason, it is one of the most versatile treatments available, enhancing any therapist's practice.
About Remedial & Pregnancy Massage
To address pain and muscular dysfunction with Remedial Massage, I use a variety of techniques. These include myofascial release, trigger point therapy, positional release, and deep tissue massage. I am also able to incorporate Bowen Therapy and the Emmett Technique which have proven to release muscular tension with success. For example, I may address the psoas muscle if a client experiences back pain using a traditional approach along with the Emmett technique. I find this addition provides an even greater soft tissue release. Pregnancy Massage is preformed side lying using whichever remedial massage techniques are most comfortable for the client.
