Child therapy

Kinderbalans helps children and youngsters who suffer from pain or stress-related complaints. I use a child-friendly combination of a very mild manual therapy (Bowen) and psychological support.With this approach, I solve the tension in head and body in order to make the kids happy and relaxt again. Balanced children are able to develop themselves in a healthier and happier way. They do better in school, with friends and in their family. Complaints:

  • Tension/stress
  • Abdominal pain
  • Headaches/migraine
  • Neck- and shoulder pain
  • Back pain
  • Sleeping problems
  • Colic pain
  • Hyperactivity
  • Respiratory problems
  • Anxiety (with EMDR therapy if necessary)

About the therapy

Bowen Therapy

Bowen Therapy is a gentle, relaxing treatment for pain and stress. The therapy has a deep impact on the body which leads to re-establishment of the body balance, in order to release pain and tension. The treatment is mild and therefore suitable for all, including babies. A consult takes 30-60 minutes. The first session starts with an extended intake. During the Bowen treatment, the client lays on a massage table. I make small moves with my hands on different parts of the body. The treatment is painless and relaxing. During the sessions, there will be some breaks of a few minutes to give the clients body time to react to the impulses and to start the healing proces. Often 3 to 5 treatments (one treatment a week) are enough for reduction of pain and dysfunction.

Psychological support

If Bowen alone is not sufficient, often in case of stress and anxiety, I add psychological support to the sessions. We speak about tension and fears is order to gain more insight in the complaints and we do exercises to relaxt and alternate unpleasant thoughts and feelings.

EMDR for children

EMDR therapy is a wonderful method when a child suffers from fobia, trauma / bad memories. How does this work? I will ask the child to recall the traumatic event, in particular the associated images, thoughts, feelings. At the same time I provide distracting stimuli: following my hand, listening to alternating left and right sounds via the headphones and by taps on the knee. These distracting stimuli, each about 30 seconds, are called a ‘set’. After each set I will ask the child what comes up. This continues until the thoughts or feelings are not bad or scary anymore.
