Your Best Interests at Heart

by Jen Taylor.

What is it that bothers you?  A problem or issue that could really be worthy of attention.  Something which feels annoying or is even more compelling and having a destructive effect on your health or relationships?  Perhaps it comes as a quiet whisper or a deeper nagging feeling?  Have you been tucking it away, seeing if it could magically disappear?  Hoping that tomorrow will be the day and yet, as each day evolves, the problem and the discomfort is still there.

Facing your story & the feelings can take some courage and create a place of very real vulnerability.  A place that could be a challenge to be in, or not, as it may not actually even feel as bad as your mind or inner critic makes it out to be.  Once you’ve laid the issue on the table and spoken of it, the weight is off your shoulders and the energy is in motion for change.  Is it something that is just for you personally to address, or maybe it involves communication and negotiating with another?

The problem may require the assistance of a Life Coach or Counsellor, where choosing a person you can feel safe with, is paramount.  Where you can be in a confidential, non-judgemental space with, somebody who will listen and acknowledge, who will truly have your very best interests at heart.



Often having a neutral person as a sounding board is a great way to lift tension from the physical body, a place to look at the truth and inspire some clarity and direction, when you can stop running and the issues are dealt with.  It also assists the body to come to homeostasis (the body’s own innate balance of healing), as carrying emotions and problems not addressed takes their toll, manifesting more as pain and dis-ease.  Yet in homeostasis dis-ease is preventable and in many instances reversible.

This time of year brings a great opportunity to pay attention to the physical symptoms and it is a truly wonderful time to look and listen, to nourish the blossoming of the new within you.  It could be a time to take a moment to stop running, breathe in the divine scents of new growth and fresh air, allowing your issues to be heard.  With forgiveness, love of self and another, there brings a hope for new ways.  I invite you to try it on, allow your inner voice and any problem to be heard, you and your amazing body deserve it!

Welcome to the World of [...]

by Debbie Bates.

My first experience of this profound complementary therapy was in 1999, I was pleasantly surprised as I felt a deep sense of relaxation moving through my body and afterwards, a state of calm as I moved back out into the world.  I was fascinated that points on the feet were connected to different parts of my body and through the session, felt stress falling away from my neck and shoulders.  It was after this session that I decided to undertake a practitioner’s course and while studying, my family and friends benefited as I practiced on them and that helped lessen their stress also - a win/win.

Every Body Loves Bowen

by Jen Taylor.

I meet many clients who come in to find some relief from the pain patterns & injuries which may be interrupting their daily routine.  It is common in our western culture to be used to needing a quick fix to be able to carry on with life.  It seems as a society we are not so keen at accepting the pain and addressing any feelings that may be underneath the pain.  There is such a drive to ignore pain or to reach for some kind of pain relief to be able to carry on with the daily routine.  Certainly, sometimes this is a necessary choice however, pain can be a wonderful signal in the body to help us to look at and address perhaps a wider set of problems.  The body is sending a message to look a bit closer and pay attention, if one chooses. 

Fascinating Fascia

By Reinette Nel.

Fascia is the new buzz word.  For ages we have been cutting away the fascia to get to the more important aspects in the human body like the muscles, bones and organs not knowing or realising that what has been discarded was in fact the largest sense organ within the body.

Fascia is everywhere in the body.  It surrounds and forms an intricate network within every structure.  It is a strong, flexible support system,  the most richly innervated tissue in the body, with a very high density of sensory nerves that help our nervous system orient to our surroundings.

It’s like a smooth and slippery web of connective tissue that attaches, stabilises, encloses and separates.  It is the stuff that holds us together otherwise we would just be a puddle on the floor, almost like jelly.  If you can make everything else in the body disappear (except fascia), you would look like a big piece of candyfloss.

Emotions & Psychological [...]

By Dr Elinor van Ommen.

“Am I too sensitive?” , “why can’t I move on from this?”… these are common questions I hear, and I often meet people who are in distress that relates to difficulty processing emotion.

The Joy of Learning to know [...]

by Jen Taylor.

What is your life purpose, what will you choose & what may be the benefits?

Who would you want to be remembered as, at the end of your life?

Where would you love to make a difference or contribution?

When could you allow yourself to follow your inner knowing and create more space to shine?

There will be many people, places, things which can seem insignificant but may also be alluring and oh so ready to jump in and take you off your path of wiser knowing.  There are many little ways these events can take you away from what may make your heart alight with joy.
