I use unique Australian techniques to help you: Release tension; relieve pain; and rebalance your body. 


What is Bowen Therapy? 

Bowen is a soft tissue release therapy founded in Australia. It applies a series of very gentle, rolling moves over specific areas of the body. The moves are tailored to stimulate the tissue and nerve pathways, sending sensory information to the brain. The therapy aids in increasing freedom of movement; reducing pain and swelling; and it brings the entire body out of a stressed state and into a more balanced and relaxed state of being. The treatment takes into account the whole person and helps stimulate each patient’s innate ability to heal themselves.
The beauty of Bowen Therapy is that it is so gentle that it can be used on anyone from babies through to the elderly. Although the technique feels subtle, don’t be fooled, as the results can be profound and powerful!

How about The Emmett Technique?

I love practicing The EMMETT Technique and I’m delighted to be able to share with you this unique form of body relaxation therapy!

 Again, originating from the land down under, it involves the application of light finger pressure at specific points. 

Working in this way I may thereby help relieve feelings of tension and release restrictions. Often the results of an Emmett procedure are experienced instantaneously, giving you a greater feeling of comfort.

Wonderful service from Charlotte helping sort my husbands back pain. He has given up the osteopath for you now.


I attended a series of sessions with Charlotte in the months before a foot race I had been training for. I was unfamiliar with Bowen therapy and had no idea how it worked; Charlotte did a brilliant job at making me feel at ease and explaining the therapy clearly so I could understand how it would benefit my training and help me recover from an injury I had sustained. By the second session I could see visible results in the tests Charlotte did on my range of movement, and my body could switch into recovery mode more and more quickly with each session. The injury I sustained was in my ankle which Charlotte worked with to change the way it healed and break the patterns it tended to fall into - it now feels stronger than it did pre-injury I would thoroughly recommend Charlotte for a range of ailments, especially for sportspeople looking to aid their training, but also for those struggling with stress or anxiety.
