Welcome to THE PAIN STOP

I am a qualified practitioner in the Bowen Technique, and Walker Technique and I am an Advanced Emmett Practitioner. I also hold a level 2 certificate in Reiki and EFT. I combine Reiki with Quantum Touch to give a strong but gentle energy. I have done extra courses on TMJ, Fascia Bowen, Hormonal Release and MSTR (McLoughlin Scar Tissue Release).

What is the Bowen Technique?

The Bowen Technique, or Bowen Therapy as it is sometimes known, is a very gentle remedial therapy named after its innovator Tom Bowen. The Technique is very subtle and relaxing and involves no hard or prolonged pressure. It is a holistic therapy and so addresses the 'whole you' and not just the bit that hurts!

Bowen can be performed through light clothing whilst the client lies on a bed, although treatment can be carried out just as effectively if the client is in a chair. Bowen is not like massage, acupressure or chiropractic. It is unique. There is no manipulation or force used in any of the moves. The thumbs or fingers are used to gently press against a muscle, tendon or ligament then, after a second or two the therapist rolls over the area allowing the muscle, tendon or ligament to gently release beneath his/her hands. There is no pain involved, in fact if you are in pain your muscles will tense up which is not beneficial. Also your brain will focus on the pain and this will detract from the treatment. Ideally the brain should have nothing else to think about but the Bowen move. The client will be left to rest quite often during treatment. This is a very important feature of the Bowen Technique and I believe is unique to Bowen. This is when the brain really gets to work, questioning the moves made and resetting the body to enable it to re-balance and begin to heal itself. The pressure used is often described as eye-ball pressure so it is quite light. Even if you are suffering from a painful condition like Fibromyalgia, you can still have Bowen Therapy - the pressure will be adjusted to suit you. Even new-born babies benefit from a treatment, especially if they have had a difficult birth.

The Emmett Technique has been developed from a Bowen background by Ross Emmett. More information about this technique can be found at It generally involves gentle switches or holds using only 2 fingers which allow muscles to relax and pain to dissolve immediately.

The Walker Technique has also been developed from a Bowen background by Max Walker. This technique uses moves which reconstitute blocked connective tissue, allowing for immediate relief from pain. More information on this technique can be found at

A Typical Treatment
A typical treatment lasts between 45 minutes and 1 hour and costs £40. You are asked to wear light, loose clothing such as joggers and a T-shirt to your appointment. A treatment is usually performed either standing or lying face down on a treatment couch. However if you are unable to lie in this position for whatever reason you can be treated on your side or even in a chair if that is more appropriate for you. Your comfort is my main priority because the only thing you need to do is relax and forget I'm there and just enjoy the experience.

A first treatment will consist of assessment and history of your body/injuries etc as well as some treatment. It is important to assess your body for asymmetry to let me know where I need to work. A pain in one part of your body may be caused by asymmetry in another.

I work Mondays and Wednesdays at Chelsea House Clinic, 30 West High Street, Inverurie AB51 3QR Tel: 01467 624888. Sessions can be booked online at or by phoning me direct on 07733 288035.
