What is you body reflecting back at you?

So here's a question.
What stories is your mind telling you or replaying?
very time you notice.

So here's a question.
What stories is your mind telling you or replaying?
very time you notice.

That ache again
The tight jaw
Your energy dropping
The scratchy throat....

Is there a pattern?

If there is then next time do the opposite to what you brain is feeling.
Stretch.
Relax the jaw and smile.
Stand up and move, get outside and walk, jump up and down if it feels right.
Do something you enjoy.

It's the old saying "mind over matter"

He's a pro at Bowen Therapy, and he's 5!

He confidently led his mum and best friend into the Pyes Pa treatment room yesterday.

When I asked him how his body was feeling, he could point to the bits where he was holding tension.

Then a super quick assessment and straight onto the massage table.

He's knows to tell me if anywhere is sore, when I'm working, and we talk about what he's doing over the holidays and friends parties.

We've taken it slowly to get here. The 4 year old who first walked in was not sure about Bowen Therapy and this lady who going to touch him.

So we talked, he told me about his toys and I did some moves on him stood up.

After a while we flew to the massage table and did a few more moves with him sitting on the table.

Nothing is rushed and the result is this. A very active 5 year old boy who asks to come for Bowen Therapy when he's feeling a bit out. He will relax on the table and his body responds super quick.

I still don't push for a hug, that would be too much to ask

The results often surprise both of us.

Working together we can peel back the layers and help you find balance.

Along the way we may find some of the old you, you thought you had lost, or the new you that's waiting for a push

My mind used to feel like this.
This is one of my girl’s bedrooms, but not long ago my mind felt like this too.

Thoughts scattered, unable to concentrate. Amplified at night when thoughts swirled in my head, affecting sleep.

It is hardly surprising with how many things I used to cram into my day and how many times I said yes when I should have politely, but firmly said NO.

If this is you too, you are not on your own, and there are things you can do to help manage these feelings. These are just a few.

Say NO - if it doesn't feel right, don't do it.
Exercise - pick something you want to do and give it a go.
One good thing - identify one positive event that happened each day and tell someone about it.
Daily goal - set a daily goal, one that is simple and achievable, and track the progress.
Breath – stop and breath.
Live for now - pay attention to what's happening now, rather than what has passed and what may, or may not happen in the future.
Bowen Therapy - Book in for a Bowen Therapy session.
Bowen Therapy moves help to restore balance within the bodies nervous system, moving from "fight or flight" to "rest and repair." It also helps to release physical tension such as, a tensed jaw, hunched shoulders, tight neck, stooped posture, digestive disturbances and breathing difficulties.

Unlike the bedroom next to me, my brain feels much tidier now and I feel more like me. If you want to discuss how Bowen Therapy can help you, message me or book a session.

Take care.

This is recent feedback from a Cherrybarn Bowen client. ☺️❤

"Lynne has made a huge difference to my carpal tunnels. Before I discovered Bowen therapy with Lynne I was on waiting list for double surgery and now my hands improved so much, that the surgery has been put on 'back burner'.

After every session with Lynne I have the best sleep without any pain that normally keeps me awake most of the nights.

Thank you Lynne for making my life easier. I can't wait for another session soon.

I would not hesitate to recommend Lynne to anyone with chronic pain like mine."

Bowen Therapy moves are gentle and precise and are mostly done over clothes. Which makes it great for anyone who isn't super keen on being touched or getting naked 🙈

My first taste of Bowen

Once upon a time in a paddock not too far away, I stood and watched a horse receive what I later found out was a Bowen treatment.
I was fascinated as this quiet, introverted mare stretched in ways I had never seen her move, the Bowen therapist regularly stepped away from her and gave her time to respond as she licked, chewed and yawned (relaxed and released).
Within weeks I was lying on the same Bowen Therapists treatment table, yawning and stretching as my tension rolled away.
