I have been involved with sports over many years which have included including club hockey, racquet sports and cross country. I have also had a keen interest in tai chi and chi gung, practicing these arts since 1994.
I had decided to study Sports & Remedial Massage at the North London School of Sports Massagefollowing the sports massage treatment I received following an injury incurred playing football. At this time I also began studies in Shiatsu Bodywork at the European Shiatsu Schoolwhich gave me an insight in to energy based meridian work and the effect it can have on the whole body not just the symptoms. It also contributed to my understanding of how tai chi and chi gung helped to maintain people’s health over a long period of time.
Over the past few years I was introduced to a new therapy called the Bowen Technique, I wasn’t quite sure what it did or how it worked. However it wasn’t until I had a long standing hip injury that I discovered how effective it was on the body. After a few treatments with a Bowen Therapist the hip was back to normal without any pain or discomfort. I decided to follow up my initial interest by training at the European College of Bowen Studies and since qualifying as a Bowen therapist I have found the technique to be a gentle and very effective remedial therapy.
