Your Practitioner

Mel Kingdom – Andrews 

I have been an NHS paramedic for the past 19 years and work in Plymouth. Four years ago, I moved towards working on the bank for the ambulance service, instead of full time, so I can concentrate on my holisitic business – Bowen Body Remedies.

For five years I was suffering with excruciating TMJD (Temporomandibular joint dysfunction) which, in layman terms, is extreme jaw ache and misalignment. I had tried everything; strong prescription medication and mouth guards but nothing would touch the constant pain. I heard about Bowen therapy through a friend and although I was very sceptical, I was also very desperate.

The pain was constant and I was unable to fully open my jaw.

I was amazed by the technique, not only did I come away deeply relaxed but my pain had reduced – immediately. I had another session the following week and by the next day I was no longer suffering!

I was so impressed by the therapy that I decided I needed it in my life and began the year long training.

I am now a full time Bowen Practitioner specialising in chronic back pain and sciatica. I am based in Stoke in Plymouth, Devon.

I also keep my links to Cornwall by running a weekly clinic in Torpoint.
