The Galatea Method

Feb. 7, 2011—We are proud to announce our first Red Ribbon sponsor of the Healing Horse Centre at Greenshire Eco Farms. This distinction is claimed by The Galatea Method of Lindsay, Ontario.

“Andrea Strickland has developed The Galatea Method for Natural Health and Wellbeing*, which combines elements from Body Control Pilates, Advanced Bowen Technique and Holistic Nutrition in order to provide her clients with a whole body approach to wellness.

It is a gentle, yet comprehensive, approach to relieving many symptoms associated with muscles, joints, ligaments, and other problems that have become a plague in our hectic daily lives. It allows the body to reset and heal itself.”

The Galatea Method is not massage and it is not chiropractic. It is altogether different and powerful. In 2009 I experienced a devastating accident that left me unable to lie down flat for months due to severe rib and other injuries, not to mention pain. After plateauing with other alternative therapies, a friend recommended The Galatea Method to me, saying it had helped her tremendously in the past. Ady’s expert ministrations brought my body back to near-full functionality — in three visits. Was I impressed! Now I’m a regular client whenever I’ve overstressed my body, which I tend to do due to my active lifestyle and the fact that I’m no longer a spring chicken. The Galatea Method can help you, too. Try it; you’ll see.

Body Control Pilates®: The Galatea Method offers small group and 1:1 courses. The main piece of equipment used in Pilates exercise is the reformer, which has a horizontal carriage that glides forward and backward on rollers. Resistance is provided using springs along with other attachments for a variety of exercises and positions (lying down, seated and standing.)

Bowen Therapy: The Bowen Technique is a structural treatment for pain that allows the body to reset itself back to its original blue print of proper health. It addresses every system in the body, internal organ systems as well as the musculoskeletal structure. Gentle movements over muscle, tendon insertions and connective tissue stimulate neurological impulses to the brain, which then after given time to process sends impulses to realign the body. The carefully designed pattern of movements that are performed over the body are crucial to Bowen technique achieving its holistic benefits, which result in a balancing not only on the structural level, but also at the level of the individual’s overall well being. Since there are no vigorous manipulations, the technique is safe to use on anyone from the newly born to the elderly. Bowen achieves profound relief for a wide range of conditions, very often achieving these results in 3-6 treatments.
