Lynne & Cherrybarn

Bowen Therapist, Mum, Animal Lover, Fascinated by Energy

And my shearing shed

I'm Lynne, I'm a Certified Bowen Therapist, mum to two girls, 2 sheep, 15ish chickens (some like to go walk about), 1 cat and occasional foster puppies. When I'm not working, you'll find me outside digging something up or chopping something down, it's more outside DIY than gardening. I also volunteer at my Local Riding for the Disabled every Friday in term time.

I love working with people, especially women and children. I feel we are all so busy, it is easy to lose sight of who we are and what we really want. It is this story that brought me to Bowen Therapy. After having a family and going back to work I realized I had changed, and my old life (BC, Before Children) had gone. The BC Lynne loved the thrill of the chase that the corporate world offered. The new me saw nothing but extra stress and hassle and my health suffered as I spiraled with anxiety and panic attacks.

So, in 2020 I decided to finally bite the bullet and have a complete career change, and having had Bowen Therapy on myself, and witnessing the effects on my family, it was an obvious choice.

While I was training, I became more and more aware of energy flows and other senses that are explained with quantum physics or classed as woo woo, depending on how you look at them.   My spiritual/energetic development, like everything in life is a continual process. I bring energy work into my Bowen Therapy sessions as the moves I do work on meridians and acupressure points, I also use my intuition alongside physical assessment techniques to help guide me on the best possible session for my client.

I qualified as a Bowen Therapist/ Bowen Therapy Practitioner, through Fascial Kinetics in December 2020 and am continuing my training in complimentary modalities.

Cherrybarn is my Pyes Pa treatment room and home. The building started life as a smaller shearing shed, which the treatment room is part of. This was extended in the 1980s to include the upper area. The layout of the shearing shed was sheep holding pens in the lower level and a race leading up to the upper area, where the shearing platform was located.

The building was converted into a home in the mid 1990s as a DIY project by a local farmer. We (Simon and myself) purchased the property in 2013, and by this time the building had fallen into disrepair. Anything that could leak, did, and the local wildlife had moved in. We have spent the last 5 years renovating the building, with the layout of the rooms all having completely changed along with new wiring, plumbing, windows, insulation, etc. Any of the work we were able to do, we have done ourselves in evening and weekends.

The treatment room was the last room to be completed in January 2020.
