Welcome to Feel Bowen
My name is Helen Oldham and I am a holistic therapist based in the midlands with over 20 years experience. I specialise in a therapy known as The Bowen Technique, but also use other therapies such as Yamuna Body Rolling, Kinesio Taping and Reiki to restore my clients back to full health and encourage them to remain there.
The Bowen Technique is a holistic, non invasive hands on therapy. It involves gentle rolling type moves over specific points on muscles, tendons, nerves and fascia. These moves are performed using my thumbs and fingers applying gentle pressure to specific areas. The moves are sequenced together into procedures which in turn makes the treatment work on a deep, dynamic and often profound level.
Bowen can offer relief for many types of injuries and other health problems both acute and chronic, using the body’s innate healing mechanisms.

I have been a reiki master practitioner for over two decades and it is the loveliest therapy ever. If you want to feel as if you’re wrapped in a warm healing energetic blanket, then this is for you. Reiki is where the therapist, which is me in this instance, channels a universal energy to you the client.
“Reiki energy comes from a Higher Power which exists in a higher dimension than that of the physical world, this is accessed from a transcendental part of ourselves that is connected to an infinite supple of healing energy.” (Reiki.org)
Treating horses and ponies is exceptionally rewarding. They give unconditional loyalty, they are our best friends and deserve the absolute best of care. They cannot verbally tell us if they're in pain or discomfort, but if you're aware of changes in their behaviour or they're not moving in a fluid or relaxed way its time to see an animal therapist or veterinary care where necessary.
Yamuna Body Rolling is AMAZING. It is extraordinarily effective, and you can get phenomenal results even in your first session. The reason I chose to train in YBR was due to my own personal experience of YBR and how blown away I was about how supple I became just after one session, I had so much more energy and free of aches, pains and stiffness.
My name is Helen Oldham and I am passionate about The Bowen Technique. I became a fully qualified European College of Bowen Studies (ECBS) practitioner in 2001. I have also qualified with the Bowen Therapy Academy of Australia. I have trained in Equine Bowen Therapy (EBT) and Equine Muscle Release Therapy (EMTR). As part of my training I completed an Anatomy and Physiology diploma.
I visited Helen for Bowen Therapy as I had read that it may help with my shoulder rotator cuff injury. I had previously visited an Osteopath on 3 occasions but did not feel that this was improving matters. The session with Helen was very pleasant and she was thorough and generous with her time. Following the session I made a conscious effort to take it easy apart from regular walking and drinking plenty of water, as instructed. The session had a calming and balancing effect on me and I was craving extra water for about 3 weeks!
The result was very good in that in the months following I have only used pain killers for the shoulder on 1 or 2 occasions. It is vastly improved. Before I visited Helen I was applying topical cream and taking oral pain killers 3 times a day. I have saved a fortune in Voltarol, way more than the price of the session with Helen.
Another benefit was that my legs felt a lot 'looser' and walking was distinctly easier. At age 51 I felt more like 35 again.
I have just made another appointment and am looking forward to further improvements.
I have been seeing Helen for a long time for Bowen Therapy. I am wheelchair bound and can't move around very well. I suffer with lymphoedema in my feet and legs so i see Helen often to help with the fluid build up I get in them. Before I met Helen my feet and legs used to be very swollen and heavy.
I find the bowen treatment very relaxing after I have had it done and my feet don't feel heavy anymore like they used to before i started receiving Bowen.
