The Bowen Technique

Lisa Kossuth has been a Bowen Technique therapist since 2008 and is based in Northiam, Nr Rye, East Sussex.

 

The aim of all her interventions is to help relieve tense and painful muscles that are affecting your daily lifestyle as well as support you with stress associated symptoms. She works intuitively and uses Bowen therapy, a soft tissue therapy, with its unique non-invasive targeted rolling-type moves to send signals to the brain via the nervous system. These promote relaxation and re-alignment of the body by triggering the body's natural healing processes. Acute pain is often alleviated or reduced within one to two sessions, whereas chronic pain may take further sessions.

 

Alongside Bowen therapy, she also offers Reiki, Bach Flower remedies and resilience coaching which she can combine with Bowen therapy to suit your circumstances and will work with you, offering self-care advice if needed.

Bowen

The Bowen Technique 

Tom Bowen (1916 - 1982) developed The Bowen Technique in Australia. His interest and studies of the human muscular structure led him to develop this gentle bodywork technique. As a result of this, he went onto run a very busy clinic in Geelong, Australia.

 

The Bowen Technique arrived in the UK in 1993 and since then it has spread around the world and thousands of people have discovered the benefits of Bowen.

 

Bowen therapy is a remedial hands-on soft tissue therapy performed through light clothing. It involves a series of rolling-type moves over the skin at precise points on the body using gentle pressure which can be adapted to suit the individual but deep prolonged pressure is not used. 

 

These moves are designed to disturb the underlying fascia, muscle and organs. Between sets of moves, there are short pauses or 'breaks' to allow the nervous system to gather information so that the body can start to make the necessary adjustments to re-align and re-balance as well as stimulate its natural healing abilities.

Bowen is most often used for the management of soft tissue and joint pain such as back, hip, shoulder and neck pain. It is often equally useful for stress management and general health maintenance as it is deeply relaxing and re-balancing to both the body and mind. A common side effect of Bowen is an improvement in sleep. 

Change is often observed within 1-3 sessions, although chronic conditions may require further sessions. It is suitable for all ages and types from newborns to the elderly. Bowen is usually performed with the client lying down but it can also be given seated or lying on one side.

 We wanted to say how amazed we are at how we’ve been  since having  Bowen therapy with you. I cannot thank you enough, my back is so very much better!  - Emma

Reiki

Bach Flower Remedies

Reiki

This is a lovely therapy and ideal if you are feeling anxious, stressed and tired as it provides deep relaxation. It has become very popular with all ages over the years due to its grounding and non-invasive character.

The Japanese word Reiki is usually translated as 'universal life energy', and the idea is that energy or 'chi' flows freely through all living things in our world, including the human body.

 

Reiki is safe and gentle, and uses chi which is channelled through the practitioner to treat physical ailments without using pressure, manipulation or massage.

 

When we are in poor health the energy may not be as free-flowing, and Reiki may help to clear these blockages in a person's energy field, kick starting that natural process to self-heal, promoting better health and well-being.

Conditions that Reiki may help with

Lisa Kossuth, Bach flower remedies, Reiki, Bowen therapy, Resilience coaching in East Sussex

The term 'Flower Remedy' refers to the products developed by Dr Edward Bach, a London bacteriologist and homeopath in the 1930s. With 38 remedies available that can be mixed, there are a huge amount of possible combinations to uplift the emotions, and encourage a more positive lifestyle. Rescue Remedy is one blend that is familiar to many of us. 

 

Dr Bach became disillusioned with the side-effects of drug therapies, and turned his research to the healing power of nature. He believed that illness was a result of mental or emotional imbalance, and that the unique energetic property of a plant could be used to rectify an imbalance and restore the awareness of wholeness. During your consultation with me, we will discuss remedies to help you; the remedies will then be provided in a mixer bottle and sent
