BOWEN THERAPY & EMMETT TECHNIQUE
Davina Butler ITEC, Embody, CTha, BTPA
Davina is a fully qualified and experienced Practitioner in Neurostructural Integration Technique (NST) which is a form of Bowen Therapy and is a member of the Bowen Therapy Professional Association (BTPA) and is also a Practitioner of the Emmett Technique.
NST Bowen therapy is a remarkably effective professional bodywork technique, that when applied, initiates a process of natural auto-regulation to occur in the spinal column and consequently throughout the whole body. The resultant effect of this is a rapid elimination or reduction of symptoms, followed by an increase in energy and an unmistakable sense of well being.
Bowen therapy is gentle and therefore appropriate for everyone, from new-born babies to the elderly. It consists of gentle rolling movements over muscles, tendons and ligaments at precise points on the body using fingers and thumbs. The process releases energy, sending impulses to the brain to trigger the body’s own healing systems.
This remarkable technique can be quick and effective in helping the following:
Muscular and skeletal problems in neck, shoulder, hip,
knees, ankle and back, including sciatica
Frozen shoulder, tennis and golf elbow, R.S.I.
and carpal tunnel
Whiplash and sports injuries
Problems with posture and body alignment
Migraine and recurring headaches
Bell's Palsy, Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson's Disease
and the difficulties suffered by stroke victims
Respiratory, bronchial and related conditions
such as hay fever and asthma
Digestive problems such as IBS
Hormonal, pregnancy and fertility problems
Stress management, ME, fatigue and sleep problems
To enhance the treatment Davina can also incorporate the Emmett Technique which involves the application of light pressure at particular points and in sequences that enables the gentle physical release of muscle groups.

Barbara, a former pharmacy manager, benefits from a background in conventional medicine together with a deep passion and understanding of the power of complementary medicine, an interest which began for Barbara over 30 years ago.
The term ‘cranio-sacral’ comes from the word ‘cranium’, the head, and ‘sacrum’, just above the tailbone. The treatment, however, is not restricted to this area alone as it impacts the entire body - physically, emotionally, psychologically and spiritually.
Barbara combines Craniosacral Therapy with natural Healing, helping patients on a journey into the world of the soul, where inner peace prevails.
Craniosacral Healing is also an amazing resource for expectant mothers, new mums and their babies.
The hormonal changes that take place when pregnant, as well as the tumultuous changes within the physical body can be managed harmoniously and gently by Craniosacral Healing, alleviating stress and tension in both mum-to-be and unborn baby.
This tender treatment can
• ease backache
• improve digestive problems of pregnancy
• provide much-needed relaxation
