Reinette Nel 

  • Cert IV in Bowtech Bowen Technique
    If you want to release pain and dis-ease within your body, Reinette would love to support and assist you. She will work closely with you and peel back the layers to get right down to the real reason why you feel the way you do. Together you will address the issue that creates pain and not just focus on the symptom. 
Her own healing journey started as a client, struggling with debilitating migraines since the age of 12. She tried many other therapies, but nothing worked.  Bowen therapy was the approach she needed to address the imbalances in her life, in order to start her healing journey. She now believes in maintenance sessions to keep her body, mind and spirit balanced.

This bodywork allows for longer pauses between moves, which gives the body more time on the table to assimilate the messages.

What to expect from a session?

During your first consultation we will talk a little about your past and present medical issues and medications. I will then talk about your expectation for the sessions. If patient is shy and not really willing to discuss issues, I will follow the feedback that the body is giving me. 
Bowen therapy don't use any oils and it can be done through clothing. 
Water is very important and it's best to drink some water before a treatment. This ensure that your cells and tissues are adequately hydrated. I will also offer more water after your session and ask you to continue drinking water for the rest of the day. 
Normally I will follow some primary basic cross-fibre manoeuvres with thumbs and fingers, using gentle moves over specific points. If needed I will then decide on more specific procedures to follow according to issues raised. Sessions are very relaxing and clients sometimes fall asleep.
Treatments can last between 30 to 60 minutes. There will be 2 to 5 minute pauses between moves. These breaks allow the body to incorporate the messages I'm giving the body and to allow the body to respond. This is when the healing begins. 
During the treatment I will discuss possible sensations the client might be experiencing like warmth, tingling, pressure, lightness, awareness, relaxation etc. After the treatment you might feel energised, tired, hungry or thirsty. You might also notice that pain has moved, changed or diminished. I will mention that in order to enhance your healing, it can help to drink more water, walk a bit and not to sit for too long for the rest of the day. I will also suggest not to participate in too strenuous exercise on the day. 
Most people find their condition to improve with one to 3 Bowen treatments. In chronic cases this might take longer. Most people like to have 'maintenance' treatments every month afterwards to keep in peak condition. 
Bowen therapy is a gentle form of bodywork that can bring immediate relief to many conditions.
