About Joshua Kingsbury
I am a certified Bowen Therapist and Reiki Practitioner.
Over the last ten years I have been developing an approach to healing that is focused on dissolving the “road blocks” within the physical, energetic and emotional structures of the being. By doing this we simply enable the body/Mind /spirit to do their job. Through this work we are able to reinvigorate our sense of self as well as our joy for life.
I received my Reiki training and attunements in 2003 through a unique lineage called” Tanran Reiki” or Heart reiki.This is a blend of Karuna and Uisui, and is also influenced through a few of the key teachers who have also trained in both lineages.
Essentially I find that Reiki aids in connecting the elements of earth to the heavens, which allows us to be a clear channel or bridge between worlds. By doing so, Reiki enables us to isolate any energetic blockages and dissolve them. Thus allowing our energy to flow more freely throughout our bodies.
I received my Bowen training and certification in 2006 with Rachael Albrecht in Auburn, CA. This is the direct lineage of Tom Bowen who is the innovator and founder of Bowen Therapy.
Bowen is an interactive body balancing therapy that works through trigger point release. By strumming tendons and ligaments in key places throughout the body it communicates with the central nervous system. The effect being the opening of the meridian channels to bring more blood flow throughout the body, carrying oxygen and nutrients to the extremities.
This is a gentle, yet deeply effective approach to realignment of your musculoskeletal structure. This therapy is based on minimal imput in order to allow maximum integration. No hard or forceful manipulations are made.
Essentially the body undergoes a readjustment of its tensioning system which then creates space for the bone structure to shift on its own. Bowen helps release old muscle memory that may be stored from past injuries or trauma and helps to remind the body of its natural state.
Bowen Therapy has helped with a wide range of symptoms such as:
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Chronic Fatigue syndrome
- Jaw issues
- Shoulder and back pain.
