Soft Tissue Therapies
Bowen Therapy is a Multidimensional hands on healing modality that has achieved amazing results over the last 50 years. It emphasises on the treatment of soft tissue known as fascia which creates 3 dimensional webbing around every tissue in the body. Fascial embraces all nerves, veins, arteries, bones, lymph and organs in the body. So when there are issues with the fascia there are issues with the structures they encase. Being a holistic therapy Bowen treats the entire body. You can keep your clothes on (just not Denim) and there are no oils or creams required so no mess.
Through specific soft tissue or Fascial release and integration techniques, Bowen stimulates specific receptors that enable the body itself to correct dysfunctions and restore homeostasis (balance) on a holistic level. Through treating the cause rather than the symptoms Bowen Therapy has consistently shown it can have profound and permanent healing and pain relief outcomes.

Mayan Abdominal Massage
“The Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Therapy® address position and health of the pelvic and abdominal organs. The work is best known for the correction of the prolapsed, fallen, or tilted uterus and for the prevention and treatment of benign prostate enlargement in men, and for relief of many common digestive disorders.” Rosita Arvigo
Benefits for women
By shifting the uterus back into place, homeostasis, or the natural balance of the body, is restored in the pelvic area and the surrounding organs. Toxins are flushed and nutrients that help to tone tissue and balance hormones are restored to normal order. This is essential for healthy pregnancy, labor, and delivery.
Old adhesions from invasive treatments to the pelvic and abdominal area, including fibroid tumors, endometriosis, and cesarean delivery are diminished when addressed by uterine massage. In addition, digestion, urinary and bladder problems can be helped.
Benefits for Men
By ensuring a full blood supply to the prostate, the abdominal massage helps to prevent swelling and inflammation. Not only does the massage relieve prostate swelling, but it helps alleviate varicose veins, premature ejaculation, some impotency problems and the need to urinate frequently.
“Visceral Manipulation assists functional & structural imbalances throughout the body including musculoskeletal, vascular, nervous, urogenital, respiratory, digestive and lymphatic dysfunction. It evaluates and treats the dynamics of motion and suspension in relation to organs, membranes, fascia and ligaments. Visceral manipulation increases proprioceptive communication within the body, thereby revitalizing a person and reliving symptoms of pain, dysfunction and poor posture.” Jean-Pierre Barral, DO, MRO(F), PT
Visceral Manipulation is used to locate and solve problems throughout the body. It encourages your own natural mechanisms to improve the functioning of your organs, dissipate the negative effects of stress, enhance mobility of the musculoskeletal system through the connective tissue attachments, and influence general metabolism. Today, a wide variety of healthcare professionals perform Visceral Manipulation. Practitioners include osteopathic physicians, allopathic physicians, doctors of chiropractic, doctors of Oriental medicine, naturopathic physicians, physical therapists, occupational therapists, massage therapists and other licensed body workers.
