Feeling out of balance? Suffering from ill health, aches and pains, stress, anxiety or low mood?
Let me help to put a spring back in your step with gentle, non invasive techniques that can help to ease pain and restore a sense of health and wellbeing.
''Take care of your body, it is the only place you have to live.'' Jim Rohn
''I'm forever grateful, Jane. You haven't just touched my life with Reiki but Bowen too....when surgeons doubted I'd ever bend my leg again you pressed the reset button!'' Liz
Complementary Medicine is the art and science of healing that addresses the whole person - mind, body and spirit and works alongside conventional medicine to help maintain good health and wellbeing.
Based near Westbury, Wiltshire, I am a qualified nurse with over 20 years experience as a Complementary Therapist integrating conventional and alternative treatments in my practice to help ease pain and discomfort and promote optimal health and wellbeing.
The therapies I use are gentle, non invasive and help to stimulate the body's own natural healing mechanisms without the use of force or manipulation.
Rather than just addressing an immediate symptom, I will consider the 'whole picture' and look for the underlying cause in order to work with you to help restore your body's natural balance, relieve pain and improve general well being.
''Jane is a wonderful and extremely experienced healer. I have received Bowen and Reiki treatments and more recently Bars from Jane. After receiving Jane's treatments, I have a sense of wellbeing, calmness and as the treatments continue to do their work over the following days my energy levels are put back into balance. I recommend Jane very highly .''
The Bowen Technique
Bowen works to balance, repair and reset the body and therefore has the potential to help a wide variety of conditions.
Many of my clients have found it to be helpful for Musculoskeletal problems including back and joint pain, and for providing relief from sport or work related injuries. Respiratory problems, headaches and hormonal imbalances have also responded well to Bowen and many people find it helps with relaxation and stress control.
Carried out on a comfortable bed, it is suitable for all ages from birth onwards.
''Jane is a wonderful therapist in the most beautiful surroundings. I've had Bowen Technique for several years and it has cured my Sacro Ileac problems wonderfully. Much better than any other therapy I've had in the past. A highly recommended, talented and lovely lady!'' Laura
Reiki is suitable for all ages and can be used to help you relax and bring about a sense of well being.
It can also help to reduce pain, anxiety and fatigue and support the body when it is under stress from illness or injury.
Many professional therapists find this gentle 'hands on' treatment a very useful addition to their skills as it can help enhance the effects of other treatments. Treatments are usually carried out on a comfortable bed, but seated treatments can also be given.
Many people find receiving Reiki a very helpful aid to coping with the stresses, strains and demands of modern life.
''Jane has magical hands. Throughout my life Jane has helped me to heal and rejuvenate through the application of Bowen and Reiki. Both techniques have healed my aches and pains and often come with intuitive insights.
Jane is an authentic, kind, caring being and I highly recommend her to anyone in physical or emotional discomfort.''
Clients report many benefits from having Access Bars treatments, from better sleep to feeling that they are able to think more clearly and can face life with more ease and joy. If you feel stressed out with a head full of chatter then Bars could be the treatment for you. Carried out on a comfortable bed or reclining chair, having your Bars run should leave you feeling as if you have had a nice relaxing treatment and may help to bring positive changes to your life. It is suitable for both children and adults.
''I started having Access Bars treatments with Jane and since then I seem to see things clearer than I used to. On top of this my relationship with my Mother (always tricky) has greatly improved. I would recommend Access Bars and at the end of the day, if nothing else it is wonderful to lie back and be allowed to relax.''
Light Therapy is known to be effective in all phases of healing. It can reduce inflammation, activate the immune response, alleviate pain, improve circulation, increase lymphatic drainage and help regulate the hormonal system as well as bring homeostasis (balance) and healing to wherever it is needed in the body, be it on a physical, emotional, mental or spiritual level. People suffering from Seasonal Affective Disorder (sometimes called Winter Depression) can benefit from regular Light Therapy sessions and it can be helpful in all phases of wound healing. Carried out on a comfortable bed or chair, it is not suitable for anyone who suffers from photo sensitivity, Epilepsy or similar conditions and is not recommended during pregnancy.
''I tried light therapy for the first time. WOW! Amazing experience. Feel good. relaxed, confident, and what wonderful pain relief.
Wasn't sure what to expect. I suffer with osteoarthritis in both my hips and have restless nights, getting comfortable. Sleeping on either of my sides had been impossible. I hated sleeping on my back. After my treatment- Not only do I walk more up right. I've been having a good night's sleep and able to lay on both of my sides.
I haven't needed any painkillers. Feel myself again, without all those nausea side effects. This might have been my first, but definitely not going to be my last!''
WHY CHOOSE ME?
EXPERIENCED AND INSURED
As a qualified Nurse and experienced Complementary Therapist, I have studied and qualified in an array of healing modalities and am committed to helping the body to heal through natural means wherever possible.
Over the years, I have gained an extensive knowledge of natural healing processes and an innate understanding of how to trigger the body's own healing mechanisms.
Some of my clients travel long distances to see me which I view as a great compliment and testimony to the benefit they gain from my help.
I am fully insured, adhere to strict codes of professional conduct and your confidentiality is assured.
All client records are kept in accordance with current data protection laws.
In a peaceful village setting on the site of an old watermill, treatments are provided in an upstairs treatment room on a comfortable bed accompanied by the soothing sounds of the river.
No reception desk with the phone ringing, sterile treatment room or other clients milling around, so I hope you will immediately feel at ease when you step through the door.
There is on street parking and the house can be accessed by wheelchair. Treatments can be carried out downstairs on a portable couch if stairs are a problem.
AS MUCH TIME AS IT TAKES
One of the joys of working from home is that I don't have to adhere to strict appointment times and can allow each individual client the time they need for their treatment to be the most effective.
Treatments will generally take 45 - 60 minutes, but please allow up to 90 minutes for your appointment.
I feel it is important to get to know you before I commence your treatment and will take time to chat with you about your medical history, life and general health and well being to help me understand and identify what may be needed to help you.
My commitment to this does not end when you leave and I often spend time researching and gathering information that may be helpful to you.
Fees range from £5 - £40 a session. A generous discount is offered if you pay for three full treatments in advance.
You can see a full price list here.
If you are not sure which treatment to have or are curious about what actually happens during a session, you might like to try a 'Taster' session. These are shorter than full treatments and generally last 20 - 30 minutes.
Preferred payment method is by direct bank transfer on the day of the treatment. Cash is also accepted.
I'm afraid I am currently unable to accept cheques or card payments.
WHAT MY CLIENTS SAY
"I have been suffering with severe morning sickness to the extent that I wasn't eating proper meals at dinner time with my family. After pulling my back I realised I should be doing something about it, so I got in touch with Jane the miracle worker! The day after my Bowen treatment I was sitting at the table eating my main meal with my family. I felt so much better, my body felt balanced and I had no back pain whatsoever.
Jane is an amazing lady and has always helped me in my time of need. I feel very blessed to know her." Sam
"I moved to Wiltshire in May 2014 from Lancashire. Came complete with 4 wheeled sit down shopping trolley, walking sticks and chair for shower. I had to leave mobility scooter behind as nowhere to store it. I've had a bad back for many years, but after having a new knee in January 2009 it became much worse as that leg was now half an inch longer. My balance was appalling, I was forever lurching from side to side and falling. I was on a vast amount of painkillers too.
I had known Jane only a short time when she suggested I tried the Bowen Technique to see if it would help my medical problems.
A short course to start with then top up procedures approx every five to six weeks has given me a new lease of life. No more shopping trolley, shower chair, or walking sticks and painkillers cut down from 8 daily to the occasional 1.
I walk taller, sit straighter and my balance has improved greatly. I have more energy and spend less time lying on the settee as my back is so much better. I will always need a top up, but after years of unsuccessful physio this treatment has been a godsend. I now have a life to look forward to. Thank you Jane." Sally
"I used to be a helicopter pilot and was recommended Bowen Treatment for a long term back problem, and in particular, Jane Edwards, the local practitioner. My wife was managing an MS Therapy Centre in Wiltshire and a number of the members used to visit Jane and found Bowen Treatment alleviated a number of their symptoms.
Previously I had tried acupuncture, physiotherapy, traction and, of course, pain killers of various shapes and sizes - all with no lasting results: any relief tended to be short-term.
The Bowen Treatment, however, produced immediate pain relief and enhanced mobility, and since that initial treatment I have generally visited Jane every 3 months or so but sometimes less frequently. For instance. as I write this. it is some 6 months since my last appointment and I don’t feel the need for another session just yet. My two daughters have also used Jane periodically and have found similar results as me. My eldest daughter, now resident in India, has used an Indian Bowen Practitioner, and her husband, with similar results. I cannot recommend Jane Edwards more highly, the more so since, as a qualified nurse, one feels in very safe hands." Mike
"It's tricky heading off to have a treatment you've never experienced before. In my case, Bowen. I had thought I needed an Indian Head Massage for the problems I was experiencing with my neck. Jane quickly deduced that Bowen would help to relieve the pain and tension I had.
I can't believe what a difference it has made, and I'm looking forward to experiencing a 'taster session' of the remaining therapies that Jane offers. Thank you so much Jane, you are doing such an amazing job." Sarah
My husband has been using Jane's services for many years, mainly Bowen Technique.
I recently went to see Jane myself and we used Bowen Technique too. I had a very painful frozen shoulder and within the first treatment my shoulder was much better. Still a bit painful but I had regained movement. We did a further 2 treatments and I have had no pain since (all without any prescribed drugs).
Jane is very friendly and easy to talk to. Her knowledge of various areas is amazing and she resolved a lot more than just a frozen shoulder for me. Thank you Jane. Florence
Jane was recommended to me as I had back aches.
I had been taking medications for a long time and felt that trying something else would not harm. I knew nothing about Bowen Technique - I had never heard of it before. So I tried it and it helped! I wasn't pain free but I was now able to go longer without medications. I have since had a back op and have been using Jane on and off.
I cannot explain how / why but Bowen Technique eases my discomfort.
I would definitely recommend Jane and her services to anyone seeking any of her treatments! Thanks. Mark
