I first heard about the Bowen Technique through my sister, Jacqui Hoitingh who had become a practitioner. I had suffered a back problem for years which I had tried to amend with other treatments but I was still left with a dull ache. After I had two or three treatments from Jacqui I found I was pain free. I also have had a Hormonal disorder which I suffered from for nearly a year, and again two treatments and everything returned to normal. I was so impressed by this therapy that I knew I had learn it and pass it on to others.

I studied diligently, and I qualified in September 2004 with the Bowtech Bowen Association. I practice from the Borders Health, Stress and Injuries Clinic, located close to Kelso’s wonderful Abbey. I also treat in Galashiels from TLC Borders midweek on Wednesdays.

Bowen therapy, or the Bowen technique, is a non-invasive, complementary holistic therapy. It targets certain points on the body with gentle rolling movements to help it balance, repair and reset itself. Clients are believed to experience energy recovery, a reduction in pain and an improvement of function.


Reiki is a therapy often described as palm healing or hands-on-body healing in which a practitioner places hands lightly on or over a patient’s body to facilitate the patient’s process of healing. Reiki combines the Japanese and Chinese word-characters of “rei” (spiritual or supernatural) and “ki” (vital energy)
