Complementary Therapies in Swindon
Alternative Therapies in Swindon
Carrie Michael BTAA FHT IHHT IHBT
For those of you who have too many jobs and not enough time I offer you a place to relax and unwind. Simply lay back and enjoy a choice of treatments in a calm and friendly environment. The pace of life seems to accelerate all the time and the demands placed on us by employers, children, even partners can soon mount up. Besides their specific well known physical and emotional benefits, complementary or holistic therapies can give you that all important “time to just receive” with nobody to think about but you.
I have been a practising complementary therapist since 2003 and a practitioner of the Bowen Technique and have taken additional Bowen courses working with bad backs and Sports Bowen. I also practice other complementary therapies, such as Health Kinesiology, No Hands Massage, Indian Head Massage, Ear Candling, Reflexology, Reiki and Crystal Therapy.
I am a professional member of the Federation of Holistic Therapists and The Bowen Association UK.

The Bowen Technique
Bowen Therapy is one of the most versatile and effective therapeutic treatments available today offering considerable relief for many conditions. After taking a comprehensive case history and discussed your condition in detail, a treatment will consist of a series of gentle moves on skin or through light clothing, with the client lying on a treatment couch, although it is possible to be treated seated. A session usually lasts up to an hour and frequently results in a deep sense of relaxation helping the body to recharge and balance itself.

“Health Kinesiology makes you the person you should have been” Jimmy Scott.
Health Kinesiology is a relatively new discipline which uses muscle testing to gather energy information from the body, and uses balancing methods to help you alleviate stress and to make remarkable life changes. By using muscle testing you can pin point the priority order of the energy balancing that needs to be done for the individual by indentifying what stresses are interfering with your well being.
Health Kinesiology can help eliminate allergies, emotional traumas, stuck belief patterns, phobias and help you perform at your best plus so many other things.

Access Bars is an energetic body process involving gentle touching of 32 points on your head.
These points store the electromagnetic component of all the thoughts, stress and locked up energy in you mind and body. They relate to all areas of your life such as creativity, awareness, body, sexuality, joy, sadness, money, control, and many more.
When you receive a Bars session, it allows the charge on these areas to dissipate, together with the stress and worry, giving you the choice to be more generative and to have something different show up in your life. With ease!

Crystal therapy is an ancient healing practice concerned with treating patients holistically through various placements of crystals on sites of pain, on acupuncture points or meridians, or on subtle energy vortexes called chakras. It addresses the patient as a whole – paying as much attention to his or her spiritual and emotional well-being as to their physical health.
Crystal healing induces deep relaxation, releases stress and pain, and promotes energy balance within the physical and subtle bodies. Offering you a chance to lie back, relax and get in touch with your body’s energies so you can leave feeling de-stressed, refreshed and restored to improved physical health.

In addition to the Bowen Technique, Health Kinesiology, Reiki, Access Bars and Crystal Therapy, I am also trained and practise No Hands Massage, Hopi Ear Candling, Indian Head Massage and Reflexology.

I have a treatment room designed with calm and tranquility in mind.

Please feel free to contact me to discuss any specific requirements you may have, as we may very well be able to help.
For some treatments the first consultation may take an additional 20 to 30 minutes, to complete details on any specific needs you have and to identify any medical conditions that may have an effect on treatment.
In all cases you should consult your own GP before having treatments specific to existing medical conditions.
