Kathryn Phillips

I am a Bowen Therapy practitioner and a full member of the Bowen Therapy Professional Association (BTPA).

Bowen Therapy Professional Association

My interest in complementary health and options for encouraging the body to heal itself naturally goes back to the very early 1980s since when I have undergone a decades-long journey exploring the power of a range of options from homeopathy to aromatherapy to herbal remedies as well as dietary and environmental factors culminating in specialising in clinical reflexology and NST Bowen techniques assisting the body to realign, ease stress, reduce and remove pain and more.

I am a registered Bowen Therapist with the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC) as the self-regulatory body for a range of specific therapies including reflexology and Bowen and have been working from my busy, full time clinic in Kenilworth since 2011.

Clients ranging from a few weeks old to well into their 90s, a mix of gender, elite and everyday sports people, many manual workers (builders, engineers, electricians, plumbers, tree surgeons), many medical staff, lots of office workers and a significant number of those who are retired. Those doing DIY or those undergoing and/or recovering from injury or surgery and more - our doors are open to all.

I have been working as part of the clinical team at the local Shakespeare Hospice as a volunteer Bowen practitioner supporting patients since January 2016.

I am a registered Bowen Therapist with the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC).

What complaint(s) or symptom(s) brought you to the Bowen Technique:

Bad pain in my back and my legs all the time, even during the night

How did your complaint(s)/symptom(s) affect you?:

I was really bad because I need to be activ every day. After a choc I couldn't anymore. I could not run at all.

What activities have you been able to resume since receiving Bowen sessions? How has your life been improved?:

After a few sessions of Bowen I can run again. Not everything is well in my back but it's yet better. I am not painful all the time anymore and I can have rest and sleep well. I had forgotten how good it is to sleep a whole night.

Testimonial of your Bowen Therapy experience (how have you benefitted?):

Thanks to the Bowen Therapy, yes I can run again and it was a priority for me, but actually the best is how free, light and balanced I feel now. During my life as high level athlete, I have seen lots of osteopaths and chiropractors who relieved me each time I needed but because it has lasted for a long time, I forgot to be confident in my body to repair by itself. I think the Bowen therapy gave me back confidence in my ability to be well without exterior help. Thank you to my therapist as well, she is really kind, listening and attentive.

Knee Injury

How did your complaint(s)/symptom(s) affect you?:

Dancing

What activities have you been able to resume since receiving Bowen sessions? How has your life been improved?:

I can now join in some dances in my Side by Side Club

Testimonial of your Bowen Therapy experience (how have you benefitted?):

When you do Bowen on my knee it feels nice and warm and makes my fingers tingle. I enjoy you coming to see me and you make me laugh. After Bowen, I go out for a walk to keep my knee fit. It makes me feel relaxed and happy. Thank you very much. My 52 year old daughter lives at home with me. With learning difficulties, chronic anxiety and chronic obsessive compulsive disorder, life for her, and for me, is very difficult. A great fear and distrust of all medical personnel or therapists in general it was a miracle that she agreed to have Bowen technique with Kathryn having already met her previously. She really enjoys the sessions, is much more relaxed and happy and the obsessive behaviour is slowly and steadily improving. A knee injury sustained in a dancing club is also much improved – and the reason she agreed to the treatment, but the improvement has been much more far reaching.

I resumed all activities after just one session. I initially went for help as I was going away in 3 weeks with 4 of our grandchildren for 2 weeks and would not have been able to do much with them. As it was I did everything possible while away without any pain.

How many sessions have you received (and how often)?:

I've had 4 sessions now. The first was a lengthy analysis and questionnaire plus treatment which helped my tennis elbow. I also suffer from a curved spine with daily pain and wore shoe orthotics, so I have had a further 3 sessions now. The 2nd was 1 week later, the 3rd was 3 weeks and the final one will be 4 weeks, just before I go away again.

Testimonial of your Bowen Therapy experience (how have you benefitted?):

The good part about the Bowen Therapy is that all the body is treated - so I came in for tennis elbow and we are also working on my back pain as well. I have not worn my shoe inserts since the first session and I have walked 5 miles and 7 miles over 2 consecutive days without pain. I'm really pleased that my life is returning to normal without pain. I still have a way to go with the back but I've been in pain for years so a few more sessions are nothing if it sorts it out.

I would be happy to recommend Bowen Therapy to others.

Bowen Technique

Bowen therapy is a soft tissue remedial therapy that involves the therapist using fingers or thumbs to move over muscle, ligament, tendon and fascia in various parts of the body. This therapy can be effective to help relieve everyday stresses and revitalise the whole person.

Each Bowen therapy session varies according to the particular problems of the client. By focusing on the lower and mid back and legs, the upper back, shoulders and the neck, a sense of wellbeing can be achieved, helping relaxation, aiding sleep and helping to remove everyday stress and anxiety that can make us feel under-par or prevent us functioning at our optimum.

Clinical Reflexology

Based on the principle that areas of the feet, hands, ears and even face represent organs and glands within the body, we aim to promote significant health improvements and restore health using techniques learned from many top practitioners at the International Institute of Reflexology and including Limbic Reflexology (Hamish Edgar), Maternity and Fertility work (Suzanne Enzer), Neuroflexology (Jennie Levick) and much, much more.

Thermo-auricular therapy

A few of our clients find that it is useful to have this therapy from time to time to assist with a range of health issues but in particular blocked ears which may be causing limited hearing or pain. It is more gentle than syringing and can have profoundly beneficial effects.

However blocked ears can often be greatly improved by correcting structural alignment and tissue tensions around the neck and jaw via our other therapies.

We only use Biosun candles which are CE marked as meeting all EU safety, health or environmental requirements.
