Exciting changes in 2021 brought new management to the clinic.

Tania is excited to continue her caring and successful work for all clients in the Blue Mountains.

Bowen therapy

Marga van de Reyt

Bowen Therapist

Marga van de Reyt offers Bowen Therapy, a well-known form of body work in which very subtle cross fibre moves are performed over muscles, nerves, and soft connective tissue (fascia) in specific sequences separated by short rest periods.  The moves can be applied over skin or light clothing and involve no manipulation. The treatment is suitable for all age groups.

Bowen moves produce a powerful healing response in the body, not only affecting the musculoskeletal system but also the fascia, nervous system, and internal organs.  It is through a reset of the nervous system, from sympathetic (fight or flight) to parasympathetic (rest and relaxation), that the body can start the healing process, correcting dysfunction and restoring balance on a holistic level. This can produce relief from pain, stress, and illness, regardless of the cause.

Clients with a new injury often respond immediately, while those with long term problems can experience dramatic improvement after the first few treatments.

Marga has an extensive nursing and midwifery background, and she has found Bowen Therapy to be the perfect complement to the skills she developed in those years.  She would love to assess you and make an individualized treatment plan to improve your health and wellbeing.

Marga is available in clinic on Mondays. Contact her today for an appointment.

Kim Nelson Craniosacral therapy reflexology

Kim Nelson

Reflexology and Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy

Kim Nelson offers Reflexology and Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy.

Kim has been a practicing reflexologist for over 20yrs. She incorporates foot mobilisation techniques, fascia release, lymphatic drainage, and face reflexology into her reflexology treatments. Reflexology is deeply relaxing and brings greater balance and calm to the individual.

Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy uses gentle hand holds as a method of communicating and listening to your body. As a craniosacral therapist, Kim invites the body to show her it’s potential for health. She is looking for respiration within the tissues, bones, blood, organs etc.

It’s like listening to an orchestra and sensing if any instruments are off-key, then facilitating a space for those parts of your body to come into a harmonious relationship with the whole.

The cells of our body carry all sorts of life stories, and this therapy often provides the unique environment for trauma/stress release.
Being present with another’s lifeforce provides a wonderful opportunity for healing and embodiment.

Kim is available in clinic on Fridays. Contact her today for an appointment.
