Body Therapies

Physiotherapists assess, diagnose, treat and prevent a wide range of health conditions and movement disorders using advanced techniques and evidence based care. Physiotherapy helps repair damage, reduce stiffness and pain, increase mobility and improve quality of life. Physiotherapy extends from health promotion to injury prevention, acute care, rehabilitation, maintenance of functional mobility, chronic disease management, patient and carer education and occupational health. Physiotherapists also work closely with GPs and other health clinicians to plan and manage treatment.

Bowen Therapy is a dynamic series of gentle movements executed with the thumbs or fingers on the soft tissue of the body using a rolling/stretching technique over muscles, tendons, nerves, ligaments and fascia. The main focus of Bowen Therapy is the fascia. It is essential that the fascia remains healthy and hydrated to ensure good general health and well-being. The fascia responds quickly to Bowen Therapy. Where there is pain, illness or loss of function, results are effective and often immediate.

Remedial Massage is the systematic assessment and treatment of the muscles, tendons, ligaments and connective tissues of the body to assist in rehabilitation, pain and injury management. Remedial massage is designed to balance muscle/soft tissue length, tension, tone which will in turn promote the return to normal joint/capsular/bone position; increase the flow of blood and lymph, particularly in the injured areas, thus removing blockages, damaged cells, scar tissue and adhesions resulting from injury. 

Clinical aromatherapy this exquisite therapy can be described as the use of essential oils, derived from plant matter, to bring about therapeutic changes in the body, mind or spirit of a person.  Essential oils make up part of many aromatherapy specialisation areas. . Essential oils can relax, nurture, calm and balance emotions and manage premenstrual symptoms, headaches, respiratory ailments, healthy pregnancy, grief, spiritual wellness, reconnection with self and many other areas

Modality: Physiotherapy

People come to see me for one simple reason, they wish to change the way they are feeling.

However, what afflicts us is often much more than a mechanical problem...for we are not just  machines. Human experience is on multiple levels: physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual. To effectively transform human pain, it helps if the practitioner is aware of this, for what is needed can differ in each situation.

For example, one person may have a sore neck because they have strained a muscle lifting a heavy load, another person may present with what appears to be the same picture, but the pain has been caused by prolonged emotional stress and unhappiness. These cases will require distinctly different approaches, and only experience can equip you to know the difference.

Over the years I have developed a multi-levelled model for assessing people, that takes into account the numerous causes of pain and suffering.  Using the Human Energy Field as the source of information, I look at the problem from many angles, rather than one fixed set of ideas. This allows for a treatment plan that is sensitive to your unique situation and tailored to fit your individual needs.

During the course of my career I have investigated many methodologies looking for the most elegant, simple and effective means to help you become pain-free and recover your health. These include: 

Cutting-edge science-based modalities such as The Feldenkrais method and Low Level LASER therapy.

Metaphysical ideas from the Yogic philosophy (Chakras, Koshas) and Chinese Acupuncture.

Modern Mind-body techniques such as Body Harmony, Rolphing and Colorpuncture.

This has culminated in the development of Crystal Biotherapy, where natural crystals are used to tap directly into the bodies information systems. This revolutionary, non-invasive approach is helpful for all types of pain, organ dysfunction (illness) and emotional stresses. It is gentle and simple, but must be experienced to be appreciated.

Clients you treat: Pain of all kinds, Immune and Autoimmune disorders, Chronic Fatigue, Fibromyalgia, Emotional problems (Depression, Anxiety, Grief etc), Personal spiritual processes.

Modality: Remedial Massage & Lymphoedema Management

In 1995 I received my first remedial massage.  I will never forget how amazed I was by the difference I felt in my body and spirit after just one hour of treatment.  I quickly enrolled in my first massage course so that I could help others feel so much better so quickly.

Twenty something years later I am a self employed therapist still loving learning every year.  My modalities now include pregnancy massage, dry needling and lymphoedema management.

I work from my home based clinic in Abbey 3 days per week and from a clinic in Dunsborough 2 days per week.

lindy callahan

Modality: Massage & Bowen Therapy

Hi,  I'm Lindy Callahan Massage & Bowen Therapist, and work from my home clinic in West Busselton. I have been practising body work for over 15 years. I am fully qualified in Massage and Bowen Therapy, and have current insurance and association membership. I am a registered provider of most private health funds. I like to begin most sessions with some quick muscles testing using NeuroKinetic Therapy (NKT) to get a big picture of what muscles might be over compensating and those which are lacking. My approach to bodywork is to treat the body as a whole. For example, if you have lower back pain, quite often leg muscles will be involved, I'd also look at the mid/upper back region, and abdominals. Among different techniques, I use specific trigger point therapy, and slow release work to allow the muscles to let go. Always being mindful of pain management, and allowing my client to relax and breathe. Bowen Therapy is also an invaluable tool to have. Bowen works by stimulating your body's own healing response, and helps to realign posture by resetting muscle memory. Bowen not only works on the muscular level, but also helps balance issues like hayfever, digestive problems, migranes and hormonal imbalances. I work with the Original Bowen Technique, which is very gentle, non-invasive, but works on a deep level. I work from home, mostly during school hours. If you would like to make an appointment please call me on 0409378478. Or find me on fb: www.facebook.com/lindycallahanmassage I also promote an online health store, InnerOrigin, a trusted platform that ensures truth on label. Supporting Australian businesses. www.innerorigin.com/naturalgoodness Find more about InnerOrigin and other health related info: www.facebook.com/naturalgoodnesstruth Big smiles, Lindy Callahan.

Clients I treat: I have a broad range of clients, and treat them with Bowen Therapy or Massage, depending on their needs.

Other practitioners I collaborate with: I was working from Busselton Osteopathic Clinic in 2015, and have had recommendations from Yvan and Yvonne Ducat, Dr. Annette Cransburg. And have worked alongside Simon Cribb (Physio and Crystal Healer) and have received treatments and worked on other local therapists.

monique van den ing


I am Monique from Monique’s Holistic Reflexology. I am a fully qualified professional Reflexologist and healthcare provider since 2014. I work from home but can also provide Mobile service. I am originally from Holland and emigrated in December 1990 to Australia. I work as a Registered Nurse (graduated in 1976 in Amsterdam) in Critical Care and first got acquainted with Reflexology in 2002 attending a 6 weeks introductory course here in Bunbury Western Australia.

 Reflexology is a complimentary therapy which is a holistic non-invasive modality and can be practised on everyone, from Newborn to the elderly. Reflexology is the application of pressure and soothing techniques to the feet or hands and ear or face. It is a practice over 3000 years old and has once again become part of healthcare systems internationally. Reflexology stimulates the circulation to restore energy flow which helps clear blockages which may have occurred due to stress, toxins, illness, emotions and injury.

What I like about Reflexology is that it is a great way to learn how the body and mind are working together and that it can increase your feeling of well being and helps achieving better health no matter what your condition is. Reflexology is very relaxing and will rebalance and re energise you. You will notice a difference after the treatment. I use aromatherapy, music and crystals to enhance the effect of the treatment.

I have also given and look forward to facilitating more workshops and teach people about using hand and feet reflexology to improve your communication with children, teens and adolescents and even your partners. The importance of touch and creating a nurturing environment to build trust is a rewarding experience for both giving and receiving a treatment.
