Health is more than the absence of illness. Health is the presence of aliveness, energy and joy!
Wholistic Therapies enables results by stimulating the
body's own natural ability to heal itself.
Our body has innate wisdom to balance, heal, and restore all systems,
allowing natural potential for health to be achieved. Benefits extend to the emotional and
cognitive levels of health. There are
many reasons why the body seems to get stuck, including compensation for
unresolved trauma and injury, and levels of stress that interfere with the
proper functioning of our autonomic nervous system. Chronic stress may cause our sympathetic
system to overfunction (fight or flight).
Wholistic therapy can calm the nervous system (parasympathetic) so our
body can heal. A relaxed immune system
functions more efficiently in combatting illness.
Our body has the intelligence to know our perfect blueprint and seeks to achieve optimal health. This is why a gentle approach, whereby allowing your body to do the work, can be the most effective. Due to the gentleness of the 'light touch' therapies, these methods are suitable for all ages and conditions.

"I was suffering from menopause with night sweats and hot flashes until I had a couple of Bowen treatments from Candace. I found the treatments to be fast, gentle and very effective. I have also had Bowen Treatment for my neck and lower back to help relieve the pain.
I highly recommend this form of non-invasive treatment to help the body realign and re-energize itself." - Carol Cattell, Edmonton, AB
"Candace has been my Bowen
therapist for several years. I see her regularly for monthly maintenance or for any
treatment. My sciatica is a thing of the past now. Candace is very conscientious and knowledgeable and I always feel very relaxed and well cared. I look forward to every visit." - SueM, Edmonton, AB
"I overdid it doing yard work one day and ended up with a frozen shoulder. Not even being able to lift my arm to comb my hair. Candace offered a Bowen Therapy session. She worked on me for about an hour and it was different….no jarring movements, no extending the arm to the pain's limit…just slow, simple moves. A few more sessions and I was as good as ever. Since then Bowen Therapy has kept me more flexible." - Irene G., Edmonton, AB
"I have been seeing Candace on a regular basis since
2004 and find she is great in keeping the
wellness of my body in a great state."
