  • Allergies
  • Bed wetting
  • Menstrual and hormonal irregularities
  • Neck and shoulder problems
  • Respiratory problems
  • Back pain and sciatica
  • Hip/knee/ankle and foot problems
  • Migraines and headaches
  • OOS, Carpal tunnel syndrome and tennis elbow
  • Sports and other traumatic injuries

About Gay

My Interest in complementary health care has led me to open a successful clinic in Palmerston North, using my skills Bowen Technique, Aromatherapy and Reiki.

I qualified as an Aromatherapist in 1994, attained my Diploma for the Bowen Technique in 1997, have been a Member of the NZ Charter of Health Practitioners since 2000, became a Reiki Master in 2002, and a Bowen Technique Instructor in 2004. The Bowen Technique is the primary focus of my clinic.

Continuous and ongoing training to hone, maintain and ensure that my skills are up to date is conducted regularly. I am fully committed to the wellbeing of my clients, and one of the most rewarding areas of the clinic is meeting individuals and having them leaving feeling better than when they first came in to see me.

Bowen Therapy

Bowen Therapy is amongst one of the most powerful and important tools that we have to bring about healing for the entire body. The moves bring about truly incredible results by penetrating to a deep cellular level, incorporating the body’s unique and innate ability to heal itself. With the release of toxins and old patterning, the moves begin to accomplish holistic balance almost immediately. Since Bowen focuses on the body as a whole unit as opposed to just the symptoms, it embraces the chemical, physical, mental and emotional aspects of each individual receiving treatment.

Bowen therapy aims to balance and stimulate energy flows, frequently resulting in a deep sense of overall relaxation during which the restorative process begins and continues as the body allows. Healing seems to occur by affecting the body’s autonomic nervous system, which develops homeostasis at a cellular level.


This amazing and dynamic technique is quite easy to learn and can be applied with great effect immediately following your first class. The initial practitioner training takes the form of a series of 8 different modules, every single one building on the one prior. Each module consists of two full days of hands-on training. Module 1 introduces you to the Bowen move and relaxation procedures and provides you with a taste of the power of Bowen as a profound healing modality. Further modules will take you through the entire Bowen graduate training introducing new procedures to focus on a range of issues that clients may present with, and allowing plenty of time to consolidate and revise.
