Claire Mackenzie, BA Hons, ITEC, APNT, ECBS
I am a trained Bowen and Massage therapist and have been practising since 2003. The treatments I practise are the Bowen Technique (see www.thebowentechnique.com for more details) ,Holistic Massage (a deep remedial massage), Pregnancy Massage (pre and post natal), Indian Head Massage (stress relieving using Ayurvedic techniques) and Teach Baby Massage to parents.
At present I mostly use the Bowen Technique as I have much better long term results with this work. But what is the Bowen Technique? In brief it is a gentle but powerful treatment that uses small rolling moves over soft tissue ie fascia, muscles, tendons and ligaments to encourage re balancing and healing in the body. I have had very good results with Back Pain, Sciatica, Frozen shoulder, Neck and Shoulder restrictions, Carpal Tunnel and Pelvic Realignment (especially post birth). In addition I have made a positive difference to those suffering anxiety and sleeplessness.
Since qualifying as a Bowen Therapist in July 2012 I have completed annual, or sometimes twice yearly, 2 day Continual Practice Development courses perfecting and furthering my techniques. The college (European College of the Bowen Technique) I trained with are very progressive and so we are always looking at the latest research concerning soft tissue. They also look at how best to work alongside the medical profession.
I work weekly at the Cambridge Cancer Help Centre and there I have worked with many different ages, men and women, some mid cancer treatment and others in remission. All benefit from the Bowen Technique, namely to relieve side affects of the cancer treatments relieving aches and pains, anxiety and sleep deprivation. My main aim is to rebalance, assist with healing and strengthen the immune system. At the end of the hour the client spends with me I hope they leave feeling relaxed and more positive.
All of my treatments are tailor made. My aim is to treat the person as a whole, working with the client to assist with postural issues. At my private client I treat men by referral only.
Since 2003 I have worked privately, in clinics, offices, with community groups, with a gynecologist and have organised complementary therapy events and fundraising pamper evenings. Whilst working with pregnant women I have successfully treated conditions such as sciatica. I can also offer massage instruction for partners during the birth preparation. I have hands-on experience with my three children who continue to benefit from Bowen and massage.
Where I treat:
I offer treatments from my home in Barrington or at the Cambridge Cancer Help Centre. When I teach baby massage I normally work with groups but I can also teach one-on-one - I am happy to travel to teach a group of mothers and babies.
