Every Woman’s Body is Better with Bowen

Posted: 14 October 2011

Maintaining the Health of Women During and After Pregnancy with Bowen Therapy.

Some tips and information from Brigid Fitzgerald about the benefits of Bowen Therapy.

Bowen Therapy can be very helpful for an easier birth and a healthy baby. It optimises Mum's health and posture and helps prepare her for the big event.

Bowen Therapy gives comfort and relief for the Mum-To-Be. It helps by relaxing the diaphragm and pelvic floor - this makes more room for the baby and eases the heartburn so often experienced at the end of pregnancy as the baby pushes up against her stomach. It's wonderful to see the relief felt by these women, leaving my clinic with a big smile on their face.

Some Bowen procedures can encourage the baby to be in the correct facedown position. Breech and transverse positions can both be helped. And the changes that happen to a woman's body before and during birth can be managed by using certain Bowen Techniques.

After the birth, Bowen can help with breastfeeding, easing the new Mum into a routine. If the baby is a difficult baby that doesn't want to sleep, Bowen can help the baby too. For exhausted Mum's the session itself is a well-earned break -- Bowen Therapy is the most relaxing modality I have ever experienced, many people just fall asleep on the table. This is something new mums dream about!! --Bowen Therapy keeps working on the body for 5-10 days after the treatment session, so there's a long term benefit from the session.

Baby Blues, or post-partum depression, can can hit like a sledge hammer when the Mum should be at her happiest and most contented. Balancing her body using Bowen helps this situation -- and in my experience the results can be phenomenal.

Huge Bike Ride!

Posted: 11 August 2011

Hi, I'm Tanelle and you may have seen me on Reception. On the 20th of this month I am taking part in a Huge Bike Ride to raise money for cancer.

As the 20th of August fast approaches I think back to when I first signed up for the Rio Tinto Ride to Conquer Cancer; a 200 km ride from Brisbane to the Somerset region and back. I didn’t even own a bike when I signed up for the ride, let alone know if I could ride 200km. However, I knew it was for a good cause and I was up for the challenge!

Once I’d purchased my bike… and padded pants, the training began we started riding from Miami to Duranbah -- a 30km ride, which at the time seemed like a huge ride and left me huffing and puffing. Now I am riding approximately 85 – 100km every Saturday and loving it!

As you can imagine, riding 100’s of kilometres on a push bike can take its toll on your body -- a sore back, sore muscles and a sore neck. Of course all worth it! A big thank you goes to the Team at Gold Coast Holistic Health for helping me through these ailments. Joyaa Antares with his Osteopathic treatments, Phe Gitsham with her magically healing Acupuncture, Laurie Ehlers with his soothing Massage and Brigid Fitzgerald with her Bowen Therapy!

Please feel free to follow the link below to check out my personal page and make a donation to a worthy cause and help me reach my target!


Reminder from Lin about Pain and Emotions

Posted: 11 August 2011

In my experience as a Counsellor-Kinesiologist, I have found that issues such as lower back pain, constipation, stomach ulcers and a variety of other issues can be tracked to a stress related factor that you maybe unwilling to face, either because you are unconscious of what it is, or because you might be afraid to face the consequences of some actions or decisions.

It’s not about judging or blaming oneself for what has occurred. It’s about finding a way to accept what is.

Please make a choice to get support, to help you face what is too painful or hidden inside. I offer a safe space where you can do this, so you can release the stress that could be causing your body to grab your attention through pain.
