How to Use Bowen Therapy for Optimal Health with Helen Dunne on The Healers Café with Dr M (Manon Bolliger), ND (retired*)

In this episode of The Healers Café, Dr. Manon Bolliger ND, talks with Helen Dunne, Bowen Therapist.  Healing has to be holistic.  Treating one area makes no sense to me.  It would be like treating one area of water in a pool.

Highlights from today's episode include:

Helen Dunne

I always feel confident in my ability to deliver Bowen moves. And why I worded that way is that there's more, so I deliver the moves. But what goes on doesn't come from me, it's very much about the client, and at their level, so we were talking about personalities before and, you know, context and information and people. One thing I keenly observe is the personality of that person, whether I've met them before or not. And you know whether it's someone I know that I do a treatment on, I believe that their personality will determine their rate of receiving the moves, and how quickly or slowly their condition or ailment is resolved

Helen Dunne

But children are great to work on because my favorite answer from one of the children that I used to treat in Sydney was I feel different. And I thought what a perfect way to sum it up. You know, it is you do feel different. And I think why I like that. expected results, you know, if we take a Panadol, we supposedly have an operation to remove something that causes us a lot of pain, we tend to go through or use words that describe you know, how wonderful we feel. But I think feeling different also describes a fresh way of looking at our body.

Helen Dunne 

Like there's, it's either doesn't take too much to make us uncomfortable or to feel pain. So, when Bowen eases that, or removes it. People don't necessarily, especially if it's a few days after they've sort of eased and they just think, oh, I feel good today. And they may not make the connection, especially if they're new to Bowen, to Bowen treatment. And I've had other Bowen practitioners talk about this, like one woman who was working on her daughter's feet. And her daughter had her graduation, and she wanted to wear high heels. And she said, Mom, these shoes are so comfortable. In the mother saying no, it's the Bowen therapy I did on your feet that allowed you to wear those shoes. And I thought that's a really good idea that stayed with me, because I think people are so keen to go I'm fine now and off, they go back into their lifestyles. And they may not be aware or attribute, perhaps to Bowen.  


BIO: Helen Dunne

The first Bowen treatment I had didn't make sense to me as I had not experienced such a modality before and didn't understand how I was to relate to the treatment within my mind and body.  After 10 years of loving Bowen Therapy treatments  I asked the practitioner I went to about how it works to find out more.  That lead to doing the course with Margaret Spicer and becoming a practitioner myself.

Core purpose/passion: I'm passionate about all living things: people, flora and fauna, and the creative environment that living things can create to inspire and stimulate.  I enjoy growing some of my food, gardening, watching things grow, the art in nature - colour, texture, movement, form.  I love music that resonates with the heart and mind.
