About Jan

I qualified as a physiotherapist in 1981, and worked in the NHS.  I got my greatest satisfaction working in the Out Patient department, treating mostly muscular and joint conditions.

After a break to raise my young family, I was looking for a more holistic therapy to practice, and I found it in the Bowen Technique.  I was at first amazed, and then delighted with the sheer effectiveness of the treatments.

I qualified as a Bowen therapist with the European College of Bowen Studies in 2006 and enjoy developing my skills with regular advanced courses.  I am a member of the Bowen Therapy Professional Association (BTPA), and adhere to their standards of training and conduct.  I take part in the annual BTPA Pain Project, a study into the effectiveness of Bowen for particular areas of pain.

I love my work, and get a lot of satisfaction from seeing people get back to wellness, and achieve their potential.  That could be helping a sports person get over an injury and back to their training, a child gain control of their asthma, an elderly person gain more mobility and independence, or a working person on sick-leave get back to their job.  I feel privileged to be doing something which can make such a big difference to people’s lives.

I look forward to the day when Bowen is more widely prescribed as a first-line treatment in the NHS, because of it’s effectiveness and lack of side effects. I feel everyone deserves to benefit from this very natural treatment.
