What exactly do you do?2020-10-19T15:20:53+00:00

I have been studying alternative therapy since 1995; starting with Reflexology continuing with Swedish massage, Aromatherapy, and Bowen Technique, which were completed by 1999. In 2013 I studied Emmett Technique, 2015 saw me study Brain Gym adding Shamanic Counselling 2019. So many skills, all of which I bring to a treatment, which will be tailored to suit your needs and have you in a better place in the least amount of sessions possible.

Will it hurt?2020-10-19T15:21:27+00:00

The therapies used are very gentle, however, it can hurt a little until the area of tightness or pain is releases. The result is worth it.

What do people say after a treatment?2020-10-19T15:22:12+00:00

They say various things like, ‘I feel lighter’, ‘the pain is gone’, ‘does it work this quickly?’, ‘that was so relaxing’, ‘my head is clearer’, ‘definitely an improvement’ or ‘I can move easier now’.

Would it be you that is treating me?2020-10-19T15:22:23+00:00

In all cases I treat my clients.

I have been to the Doctor and other health practitioners. How do I know you can help me?2020-10-19T15:22:45+00:00

I don’t. We would complete an initial consultation and from there consider the best course of action.

How many treatments will I need?2020-10-19T15:22:56+00:00

The amount of treatments for any given pain or discomfort will depend on how long you are suffering, how you respond to the technique, and others. However at Pain Relief Therapy we do our best to cut the amount of treatments to a minimum, most of our clients have significant relief in 3 treatments.

How does a treatment work?2020-10-19T15:23:10+00:00

You can look at the information on our treatments page, which will give you an overview of each treatment.
But generally after being welcomed to the clinic there is a conversation about why you have come, answering all questions. Then laying face down on the treatment couch, you are covered with a blanket for the treatment to start. Most of my work is give through clothing, so less feeling of exposure. Any that is not given through clothing only the place being worked on is exposed. At the end of treatment there is another chance to ask questions for to say what you need.

Can you treat back pain?2020-10-19T15:23:21+00:00

I treat all pain and discomfort in the body. Emmett and Bowen technique can be used to treat snoring, pain in the legs, head or torso. Even mental pain such as bullying, panic attacks, sleeplessness or depression respond in Pain Relief Therapy. Back pain is easily treated with Emmett and Bowne Technique often being free of pain in 3 sessions.
