ISBT-Bowen Therapy is a unique myofascial manual therapy, with single, gentle cross-fibre moves being applied with fingertips to specific muscles, tendons and ligaments. These moves improve the flow of body fluids and nerve signals.
It is gentle, safe and effective and can be used on anyone, including those suffering extreme trauma, the frail and the elderly, pregnant women and newborn babies.
It is applied in a way that has a specific and positive impact on the body’s connective tissue network and the fascia, so nerves and blood vessels under pressure can be restored to their optimal positions and flexibility. This initiates relaxation of the muscles, restores flexibility of the fascia and increased circulation of essential fluids and serves to bring about often profound and positive results affecting many conditions in the whole body.
ISBT-Bowen Therapy is now being recognised throughout Australia, New Zealand, Europe, Asia and South America. ISBT-Bowen Therapy is also approved for the public hospital system in Hong Kong and was recently included in the myofascial component of the Masters of Physiotherapy course at the historic Aveiro University, Portugal.

A healthy spine facilitates good nerve signals transmission, allows for both efficient innate self-regulation and a healing process for the restoration of optimal body functions.
Dorn Method is a manual form of touch that promotes the natural self-regulation of spinal vertebrae and joints by combining the movements of the client with the gentle touch of the practitioner. This way the client develops a better awareness of his/her body and learns techniques to self-manage pain and/or irritations.
Dorn Method is non-invasive, safe and effective. It is also a true self help method, with simple and safe techniques to self-adjust the spinal and joint misalignment effectively with comfort and no pain.
We are an official affiliate of German DORN Association.

HANDLE® (Holistic Approach to NeuroDevelopment and Learning Efficiency) is an effective, non-drug, respectful, movement-based therapy, it incorporates research and techniques from medicine, rehabilitation, psychology, education and nutrition, and helps people of all ages function with ease and efficiency in life and learning. HANDLE® has been shown to effectively address a wide range of learning, behavior, and developmental issues, including but is not limited to conditions commonly labeled as Learning Disabilities, ADD/ADHD, ASD/Autism….etc.
HANDLE® looks at how all of the systems in our body and life are interconnected, as well as how these systems support each other. HANDLE® assists the brain to create efficient pathways through a systems approach. This includes but is not limited to the central nervous system, the autonomic nervous system, the digestive system, the immune system, the family system, the school system, nutrition, and environmental influences.
Each individual is addressed with non-judgement and unconditional regard, regardless of age or presumed abilities. With the understanding that self-protection is the first priority for all of us, HANDLE® calls self-protection a primary attentional priority. It investigates and determines what is driving the individual to engage in self-protective behaviours (which are also communicating basic sensory and motor needs), rather than viewing the behaviours as negative symptoms to be masked or controlled.
HANDLE® is based on neurodevelopment. Neuroplasticity is the brain’s ability to change as a result of experience. With the understanding that neuroplasticity is a lifelong process, HANDLE® realizes the importance of developmental history and future aspirations as influences on current behaviors. Gentle, simple, repeated, organised movement patterns that are supported by proper nutrition organise neural processing, influence the body’s biochemistry, and change the actual structure of the brain.
HANDLE® addresses all forms of learning - academic, social, motor, language, behavioural, and more - by putting in place all of the neurodevelopmental building blocks that form the foundation for all forms of learning and hence the readiness for learning.
Stressed systems don't function efficiently. HANDLE develops efficient systems and encourages conservation of our natural resources to improve well-being, growing and learning.
HANDLE® employs Gentle Enhancement® to gently enhance capabilities toward functionality. It does this by strengthening systems without stressing them.
The HANDLE® Screening Program
A HANDLE® Screening is appropriate for any verbal individuals 5 years old and older with mild learning and behavioural challenges. Screenings provide the individual/family the opportunity to determine if there are significant issues and to receive recommendations for addressing these challenges.
A certified HANDLE® Screener introduces a series of tasks the client performs that are designed to help the HANDLE Screener observe the individual's processing ability.
The HANDLE® Screener explains what she learned from the observations made and information collected from an intake questionnaire, and teach a program of home based HANDLE® activities that help to strengthen and integrate weak, disorganized or immature systems. These personalised activities help the brain to organize and process information more efficiently, which typically leads to improvements in the areas of concern. Recommendations for nutritional, environmental and/or complementary therapies may also be provided if required.
A review session will be scheduled within the next 4 - 6 weeks to review the activities and any questions you may have.
