Bowen is a holistic remedial body technique that works on the soft connective tissue of the body, a non-invasive neuromuscular release technique that signals the body to let go and begin healing. Bowen therapy can be used to treat musculoskeletal or related neurological problems including acute sports injuries and chronic or organic conditions.
Geriatric massage is a form of massage designed to meet the specific needs of seniors. It involves the use of hands to manipulate the soft tissues of the body to improve blood circulation, relieve pain, and increase range of motion. Active or passive movement of the joints may also be part of geriatric massage.
Having grown up with chronic physical pain due to a tailbone injury, I learned at an early age that there are alternatives for pain management. At the age of 19, a massage treatment changed the course of my life. This treatment was the beginning of learning to manage my chronic pain more effectively. I was determined to help others with their pain management by becoming a Massage Therapist.
After 7 years in the industry I was approached by a Recreational Therapist desiring this therapy for her Senior residents. So I started offering my services to the residents of the Three Hills extended care unit. This was emotional yet so rewarding to be able to bring comfort and joy to the face of each resident I cared for.
The need for comfort and pain relief was great. This then became my mission!
Over the past 15 years I’ve been able to expand into 10 centers and have hired amazing massage therapists to care for our Seniors. After many years, my heart has only become bigger towards our aging community. They are an integral part of our country, and many are deep wells of wisdom. I am always blessed and refreshed when working with my Bowen clients and with the aging population.
