About Sonia BartonHello, I’m Sonia Barton and my Passion and Love is working as a Bowen Specialist in Northern Rivers area, with clinics in Nimbin, and Murwillumbah. I am one of the 4% of the population who love their job!
If you’ve got back, shoulder, neck or hip pain, most doctors will look for a local cause. But the solution may be much further away especially if you’ve ever had:
a whiplash injury
wisdom teeth removed
or dental surgery
Does your jaw click when you yawn or when you eat? Feel pain or soreness around the jaw and temple areas?
If so, you’re one of the many people who has experienced something called temporomandibular joint disorder, more commonly referred to as TMJ disorder.
During a Bowen therapy session I can check through kinesiology testing whether or not your jaw is out alignment. That includes the TMJ joint and the C1, the very top vertebrae. If it is imbalanced, it can be easily persuaded back into balance through gentle moves.
It seems to be that around 40% of my clients suffer with TMJ disorder. This can also create unusual pain in various parts of your body.
It’s understandable that TMJ would trigger headaches, migraines, facial pain in the face and referred pain to the teeth. It’s also logical that such pain and tension in the head region would result in misaligned muscles and neck pain. But the low back? How can this association, so consistently puzzling to dentists and regular doctors, be explained?
The body is constantly trying to bring itself into balance so when the jaw isn’t “balanced” the misalignment affects the whole body, maybe trapping nerves and causing tension in muscles in various parts of the body.
Solution? By having a course or 3 or 4 treatments of Bowen therapy can help greatly in bringing the body back into balance in a gentle way. Through releasing tight muscles and the fascia around the jaw, and the rest of the body, the body can bring itself into balance relieving pain and discomfort.
I am dedicated to providing you with the best treatment I can give you. Whether that is on a particular problem area, chronic pain, or relaxing over stressed muscles”.
