Bowen therapy is an advanced massage technique. The Bowen technique stimulates the nervous system and allows it to activate its own healing mechanisms. A Bowen session consists of a series of specific “moves” applied to the specific areas of the body. There are pauses between each series of moves. These frequent and important pauses allow the body to fully respond to these moves. The moves are gentle and slow across muscular tissues. They are not fast-paced vertebral manipulations. Bowen is beneficial to everyone and all ages.
Cupping therapy is an ancient form of alternative medicine in which a therapist puts special cups on your skin for a few minutes to create suction. Elsie uses plastic and/or silicone cups. People book cupping appointments for a variety of reasons, including to help with pain, inflammation, blood flow, relaxation and well-being, and as a type of deep-tissue massage.
Elsie sees and treats the body as a whole, not just symptoms. She looks forward to treating you on your journey to better health.
Elsie’s interest in massage therapy began when she was in her early 20’s, having many aches and pains and desperately needing some form of natural alternative care. Five years later after experiencing what massage therapy did for her, Elsie graduated from the Canadian College of Massage and Hydrotherapy and became certified in 2007. She became a Certified Bowen Practitioner in 2009 through The Bowen Therapy Academy of Australia.
Elsie has taken many courses throughout her career and found that she has a special interest in women’s health. After having her own children, she realized how important it is to get the proper care and treatment during and after pregnancy. She decided to take a course on pre/postnatal treatments, infant massage and retrained in the benefits of breast massage and abdominal massage. She also treats various conditions such as chronic pain, repetitive strain injuries, post-surgical sights, and everyday aches and pains and stress reduction.
Elsie’s massage style is deep tissue with slow kneading techniques. She combines everything she has been taught into her treatments to give you the best care possible. All genders and ages are welcome.
