Looking for volunteers to help me in my training in the Bowen Technique - a holistic therapy - for free!

I'm in Bournemouth and I'm training to be a practitioner in the Bowen Technique. I'm looking for people to volunteer as case studies - the therapy is extremely relaxing and very effective. You may find it sorts out a niggly back pain or just helps you to sleep better.

To be a case study you would need to be able to travel to my home in Bournemouth for 3 treatments which take place between 5-10 days apart (usually once a week works best). For the treatment you need to be prepared to be in bra and pants (I always mention this so no-one is shocked!) but are covered by a towel so no need to worry. The treatments last about 45 mins and at the moment I have to do them evening or weekends as (like you probably) I have two little people at home.

If you're interesteed or want more info please post here or PM me.

Yes, the allotments, I used to live next door to them in St Margagrets Rd. Was a bf at the time who lived there, but not my dh <<giggles at the thought of dh on a skate board or BMX>> <<whispers>> He used to be snowboard instructor but is useless on a skateboard.
