Cathy Van Harmelen
Bowen Therapist & Physiotherapist
A physiotherapist for 13 years, Cathy has lived in Dubai since 2008 working in leading physiotherapy and sport clinics. She qualified as a Bowen Therapist in 2017 with her growing passion for healthcare that recognises the direct link between the emotional state of the person and their health issues.
This holistic approach to manual therapy allows her to treat the client on all levels, not only working on the musculoskeletal system, but the other systems that make up the body.
"The human body is amazing, its ability to heal itself is amazing and it is endlessly wise. All the healing potential is within us, and I believe holistic and integrative healthcare is key to aiding the body with its healing process. In Bowen and Physiotherapy, I am working towards improving the wellbeing of people and at the same time working with the human body, which never ceases to be a beautiful work of art."
Cathy obtained her degree as a physiotherapist in Pretoria, South Africa, and has completed a certification in Spinal Manual Therapy, as well as a certification course in Advanced Sports Rehabilitation at Curtin University of Technology, Perth, Australia. Other post-graduate courses include: STOTT Pilates Spinal, Pelvic and Scapular Stabilization Matwork & Reformer – RMR1 course, Dry Needling as well as the Neurokinetic Therapy (NKT) course.
