Michael Morris began his training in Sports Massage in 1996, and later studied Remedial Massage and Manipulative Therapy with the Northern Institute of Massage – one of the most recognised and prestigious massage schools in the UK.
Having spent time out travelling around the UK working with various professional sports teams, at national and international level, Michael’s attentions turned to the clinical aspect of the work in 2000. A qualification in The Bowen Technique ensued in 2002 after almost eighteen months of training, and this changed the direction his work was taking – from the ‘no pain – no gain’ approach previously adopted to the ‘no pain – all gain’ approach Bowen is capable of offering. Michael started teaching for the European College of Bowen Studies in 2007 and now holds Introductory level courses and practitioner workshops throughout the UK.
Academically, Michael studied a Bachelor of Science with Honours degree, graduating in 2007, and completed his PGCE post 16 teaching certificate in 2008. Michael is currently completing a Masters by Research degree with the University of Warwick, looking into the effectiveness of The Bowen Technique of non-specific chronic, low back pain.Jennifer Marie Holcombe (nee Wild)
Originally from Liverpool, Jenny spent some years living in London and Brighton before spending 17 years living in West Somerset and moving to Lincolnshire in 2007. Jenny is married with 3 children.
Jenny has spent the last 20 years in various high level administrative and management roles within local government, hospitality, healthcare and residential childcare. Jenny discovered spiritual healing in 1995 and trained as a spiritual healer with T.H.I.N (The Healers International Network) in 2005. Jenny has travelled all over the country to different healing/therapy events offering her skills.
Jenny became Head of Human Resources whilst working with young people with extreme challenging behaviour and completed a Certificate in Management Studies as well as becoming a Team-Teach Instructor (physical intervention). Working within a residential children’s home in the centre of Exmoor, Jenny was able to see first hand the effects of ADHD, dyspraxia, dyslexia, abuse and drugs on young people. It was whilst in this role that Jenny’s interest in alternative/ complementary therapies developed. In an attempt to find a better way to help the young people with their problems without just conventional medicine alone and also to assist the staff who as part of their role could become stressed or ‘burnt out’. Jenny began to research the alternatives including complementary therapies, nutrition, diet and behavioural techniques.
As a result of this research Jenny chose to qualify in Indian Head Massage, Aromatherapy, Swedish Massage and Reflexology in 2008 at Peterborough Regional College. Whilst working full-time for the NHS Jenny carried out a mobile therapy service in the evenings and at weekends in Holbeach, Crowland and the surrounding areas.
After considering the Bowen Technique for many years Jenny finally found the time to complete the training process and qualified in the Bowen Technique in May 2010 after almost 2 years of training with Michael Morris.
Jenny also delivers Bowen and Reflexology to the MS (Multiple Sclerosis) Therapy Centre in Huntingdon one day a week.
