Bowen has been a huge part of my life growing up. After injuring my knee at 14 years old playing hockey, I was unable to walk without being in immense pain. Doctors were unable to determine the source of the pain and could only offer to perform an exploratory operation. I decided to first investigate alternative treatments before committing to surgery.
I tried a number of different therapies such as massage, physiotherapy, chiropractic and orthotics but I found nothing made a difference until I came across Bowen. After only four treatments I found the pain had vastly reduced. I was so impressed by these results, that I decided I wanted to learn more about the technique and incorporate this into not only my personal life but also my working life and so set out to learn more about this fantastic therapy.
In February 2015, I qualified as a Human Bowen Therapist with the College of Bowen Studies. I have since completed the ITEC Diploma in Anatomy, Physiology and Pathology, which has deepened my understanding of the human body and made me appreciate just how amazing the human body really is.
I have also recently become fully qualified in Equine Bowen with The Rose Farm College of Equine Studies.
I have previously competed to Advanced Medium in Dressage with my horse, Cadbury, who has since retired to hacking. I am also currently training my six-year old, Dan, for Dressage.
I hold a BHS Stage 1 of Care and Riding and spent a year working at a livery yard and I am also a trainee Judge for British Dressage and I also hold both First Aid and Safeguarding Children certificates.
