About Donna

 

After suffering from crippling back pain, and finding what worked, and didn't work, I know first hand what it’s like to live with pain.

 

The experiences I've had, have shaped the therapist I am today.  
 

I have a unique way of integrating different therapies to suit the condition or symptoms you're presenting with and I understand how to work with you to ensure you receive the best care possible.

 

My personalized approach, along with my absolute faith in the therapies I've trained in, means I know what is achievable, (I'm living proof) and I’m fully committed to your health and well-being. 

 

I work with adults, children, infants and seniors, treatment is specialised and depending on your circumstances, it can be done sitting, standing or laying down, without any interference to any other medical care you are currently undertaking.

 

I've given you a breakdown (see services) of each Therapy I'm trained in so you can understand how they work and what to expect. Each of these therapies is based on the same philosophy "To facilitate the body's natural capacity for self - regulation".  My job as a therapist is to pick the right set of instructions to ignite this natural process.

 

I’m dedicated to building relationships based on, honesty, respect, confidentiality and trust.   

 

If your in need of a physical therapist that gets results, whether it be for pain relief or relaxation - I'm confident I can help you.

Private Health Rebates

 

Whilst Bowen Therapy has been covered by the majority of private health funds for over 15 years - Our government has changed its policies, allowing private health funds to drop existing requirements in our 'EXTRA's' cover, which means most natural health care will no longer be covered.

This will come into effect 1st April 2019. 

 

Action Required if you want to make a change!

 

Over 11,000 of you have already responded to the call and emailed Health Minister Greg Hunt asking him to lift the ban on private health insurers offering rebates for natural therapies. Thank you!

The good news is our voices ARE being heard.  Let all your friends and family know they can do something to help to make a change. The simplest way is to write a letter to your existing health fund telling them you want Bowen Therapy to be covered in your extra's again.  It has to be in writing and if they get them often enough we might just make a change.  I do this at least once a year.  For the price we pay for cover, we should be allowed to choose what we want to be covered I feel. It's not a fair system. But keep the pressure on the government to lift the ban & allow health funds to cover natural therapies that their clients want covering.


We need to keep the pressure on if we are going to have this decision reversed.
