Presenter Biography 

In 2003 my car was struck from behind, while at a red light. For several years I was unable to work, suffering primarily with head and neck injuries. 

Being I hadn’t yet known of Bowenwork, for my recovery I used a variety of modalities: traditional medicine, chiropractic, acupuncture, physical therapy, massage, cranial-sacral therapy, etc. These treatments helped some, yet I was still not my old self.
I was introduced to Bowen on a trip back home to New Zealand by my mother, who was trained in the techniques. It was clear to me, after just three sessions that I must learn Bowenwork!  So upon my return to the U.S., I did exactly that!
After completing the “Basic techniques” of Bowenwork in 2007, developed by the late Tom Bowen, I trained in the advanced “Specialized Procedures” and the “Mind/Body/Bowen” techniques. This approach to the work takes on a whole new level of healing that truly finds the root causes for the issues experienced today, and that may even go as far back as our birth.
It was here that I finally found the relief and healing I was in desperate need of.
Bowen is fascinating work with results as individual as the people who experience it. In all cases it relaxes and allows space for the body to heal itself naturally, unlike any other modality I have ever experienced!
