What people are saying….
Over the past 8 or so years I have had a lot of different therapies in trying to ease my chronic pain. Liz has been treating me with Bowen therapy for a few months now on a regular basis particularly in my neck, shoulders and hips. It has been a challenge for Liz in identifying where the origin of the pain is coming from and it fascinates me when she can explain it by actually showing me diagrams from her books. Prior to seeing Liz I had never heard of Bowen therapy and now I would recommend it to anyone who suffers from any sort of pain. It’s a very gentle and relaxing treatment. I look forward to my sessions with her knowing that it does provide relief for me.
Elizabeth helped me through the last trimester of my pregnancy and I highly recommend her to other local mums and mums-to-be. She’s very thorough and takes the time to listen to any issues from my obstetrician or physiotherapist, checks for any changes since the previous appointment, and adjusts her treatment accordingly. She’s also very kind and compassionate and, most importantly, an excellent massage therapist! She really helped with discomfort in my hips and back and calf cramps.
I have been going to see Liz for 6 years now for remedial massages and I have also been so impressed by her skill at relieving my stress and tension. Liz is always highly professional but manages to combine this with a wonderful warmth and caring nature – I would strongly recommend her!!
