SELF-CARE IN THESE UNCERTAIN TIMES
WATCHING YOUR WELL-BEING IN THESE EXTRAORDINARY TIMES
SELF-CARE RIGHT NOW IS VITAL
When we're bombarded with scary news, we can feel agitated, anxious and stressed. A little healthy stress is a good thing for helping us get up, go and get stuff done. However, prolonged stress keeps our nervous system in a constant state of 'fight or flight', rather than ‘rest, digest and repair’. This has an impact on the whole body – nourishing blood that should be circulating around our organs of digestion, reproduction and respiration is diverted to our muscles instead, in preparation for escaping danger by running or fighting the perceived danger

Give BOWEN THERAPY a go. It's never been more affordable at $50 for a session. It's a slow, gentle, remedial treatment based on the cross-fibre moves used in a remedial massage. It appeals to those who prefer to keep their clothes on, who don’t like messy massage oil, prefer a softer touch to relieve their aches and pains and for those with auto immune diseases who don’t want a therapist ‘going in hard’. Bowen can also be done on the day of injury, whereas massage should not be performed within 48 hours of an injury. Bowen may help with lymphatic drainage.
