As I sit to write this letter I can’t help but hope and pray you have all been as well as can be expected at this time no thanks to COVID19! These unprecedented times have required us to vastly change our lifestyles in order to protect not just ourselves but also others and therefore ensure we help to contain the spread of this awful virus.
It has been six or seven weeks now since I last saw anyone for a Bowen Therapy session. Whilst it has been a challenging time for everyone when it comes to dealing with pain and discomfort or stress and anxiety for that matter, it can make life especially difficult.
Whilst some businesses are being allowed to see clients again, there are strict precautions that need to be put in place to ensure the health and well-being of both client and practitioner. I have chosen to err on the side of caution and remain closed at this stage and will review on a week by week basis. Of course I will let you all know as soon as I am reopening.
An alternative for those of you who are open to it is ‘distance healing’. Yes I know it sounds out there but I have offered and been asked by some people if this is a possibility. Yes of course it is and there have been very positive results with 80% of those who have sought relief from their discomfort experiencing significant improvement in their discomfort levels. How on earth could this be possible you are probably thinking? The use of ‘energy’ work such as Reiki and others has been around for over a hundred years. The biggest thing for anyone receiving this type of healing is ‘getting their logical mind to be quiet and just be open to the fact that anything is possible. There are many things in this world that can’t be explained and that’s ok.
If we allow ourselves to be in an open head space to receive via distance the same healing we receive when on the Bowen table then the results will still be there. All that you would do is, at an agreed time, lie down in a quiet space, relax and quiet you mind maybe even fall asleep. At the same time in my treatment room I am making Bowen moves as I would if you were there.
When I have finished I send you a text to let you know you can resume you day as normal. I then contact you in a day or two to check in with you.
Here are a couple of testimonials from clients who have had distance healing sessions in the last few weeks.
“I had my first distance Bowen treatment today with Katrina. Due to COVID19, I was unable to make my usual visit to the Port Stephens area for my Bowen treatment. I found the distance Bowen treatment to have the same effect as my normal visit to Katrina for Bowen. After my distance realignment my hips, legs and feet are again pain-free which is fantastic. I will be using the distance Bowen treatment more regularly as I no longer need to wait until I am in the Port Stephens area.”

“My son has an intellectual and physical disability. He will not let many people work on or touch him. We have had great success with Katrina and her Bowen treatment with my son. We would normally travel 1200km to see our daughter and get a Bowen treatment for our son but due to the COVID19 we are unable to travel for our son’s Bowen treatment. Katrina suggested our son try her distance Bowen treatment which we did with great results. After the distance Bowen treatment my son was moving more freely and was a lot happier in himself. I will be using the distance Bowen for my son on a regular basis as I no longer need to travel 1200km for treatment for my son.”-

If anyone would like to discuss what this type of session entails please feel free to call me on 0438148842. If it’s not for you that’s ok too. We are all different and that is what makes us who we are.
Remember at this time some of the suggestions I made in my last newsletter:
- Drink plenty of water.
- Eat nutritious food.
- Move – walk, stretch or anything that gets you moving.
- If you’re feeling down talk to someone. Sometimes all it takes is a phone call to feel a whole lot better.
As restrictions begin to be lifted remember to listen to and adhere to any instructions. Maintaining social distancing and keeping yourself safe will still be very important, even more so if you are over 65 or are immune compromised.
I look forward to seeing you sooner rather than later. Remember you are most welcome to call. The phone number is 0438148842. The landline no longer exists.
Take care and stay well.
