Tim Willcocks M.A.Sc, P.G.C.E., M.B.A. (UK), M.B.T.E.R.
Starting from a background of engineering and school and university teaching, I was later drawn to craft work and to the ‘healing arts’.
I first trained in Reflexology, Metamorphic Technique, Head Massage and Hopi Ear Candling, followed by a foundation in traditional Bowen Technique in 1996. This has been enhanced by my later training and work with NST, a ‘developed’ form of Bowen. For some more stubborn/longstanding problems, or as occasional ‘stand-alone’ treatments I make use of the Q2 Energy Spa, the ‘Surge of Chi’ Exerciser, or EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique).
Since 1996 I have treated about 1,500 people, and have kept careful records of 530 individuals. Overall 6 out of every 10 have reported a good or excellent improvement in their condition, 3 reported some improvement, and only 1 in 10 reported no change.
My personal development has included healing work with the White Eagle Lodge; apprenticeship with Sun Bear – former native American chief of the Bear Tribe; and visits to Joao de Deus (‘John of God’) – the renowned healing medium of Brazil.
My work has taken me to Canada, Slovakia, and four times since 1998 to Bosnia, working with the Healing Hands Network to assist the recovery of war victims and others; very rewarding, and eye-opening work.
I have carried out a pilot study on the effects of Bowen Therapy with Fibromyalgia (See ‘Positive Health’, June 1998), and have worked with the B.C. Persons with AIDS Society in Canada (unpublished article, 2001).
