Bowen Therapy is a light-touch approach that is proven both safe and effective for all ages in addressing any condition of health or level of pain. The unparalleled results Bowen achieves has been called by many, "The greatest advancement in healthcare today" - others call it "miraculous." The list of ailments that can be effectively addressed using this healing system is both remarkable and extensive. Stress, tension, anxiety, acute and chronic pain are the most common and simplest to quickly resolve.
The Bowen Technique is not massage, acupressure or chiropractic. There is no manipulation, adjustment or force used. The practitioner uses thumbs and fingers to gently move muscles and tissues. In between each set of moves, the practitioner allows for a wait before touching again.
These pauses and the gentleness of the treatment are what make Bowen unique. It offers rapid, long-lasting relief from pain and discomfort. Most conditions respond within 2-3 treatments. The average length of treatment is 45 min and most require between 3-5 treatments for profound relief or results to show.
I was born and raised in Moncton, NB, then received my Bachelor’s Degree in Physical Education (Sport Science) from the University of New Brunswick. I then furthered my studies to become a Registered Nurse which allowed me opportunities to travel throughout the United States and Europe, gaining valuable knowledge and experience over the last 30 years. I spent 10 years in the Sacramento area practicing nursing, where I experienced first hand after a 2 year bout of severe hip pain,,what Bowen Therapy was truly capable of. I then began studying to become a Bowen Practitioner and was able to use the knowledge of Western Medicine coupled with a Holistic passion, and saw something so simplistic, yield profound healing results in my patients. I am thrilled to be back in my home town and so proud to be providing much needed, quality care to my community.
