I am a Certified Bowen Health Therapist (C.B.H.T.) with over 700 hours of training and a member in good standing of the Canadian Examining Board of Healthcare Practitioners.  I have been practicing Bowen Therapy since 2015 and have a background in Emergency Medical Care as an Emergency Medical Technician. I am also an instructor with St John Ambulance teaching standard as well as industry courses throughout the Okanagan Valley. 

 

My passion for Bowen Therapy began when I experienced results for myself. I am now dedicated to helping my clients achieve the same level of pain relief and more. I hold advanced certification in the treatment of Temporo-Mandibular Joint disorders, the Importance of Symmetry which helps target bodily dysfunction and Applied Myoskeletal Therapy. I also have education in functional anatomy and physiology, meridian training and basic nutrition. 

 

Bowen Therapy is a unique form of neuromuscular re-patterning that works primarily through the nervous system on structural and energetic levels. Also known as Fascia Release Technique, it is a gentle, non-invasive therapy that has its foundation in osteopathic, chiropractic and acupoint theory. 

 

Scar Tissue Release Therapy, which can release adhesions, relieve pain and restrictions in mobility as well as clear attached memories and emotions, is another technique offered that is gentle and performed to the client’s tolerance. Client’s often experience relief in one session. 

I trust in the body’s innate ability to heal itself and through these modalities, the message is passed along to the nervous system to aid in doing exactly that. I firmly believe that in addition to the physical, the treatment of all aspects of a person, including any social, mental and/or emotional concerns, is vital in helping clients lead a healthier, happier life. 

 

I am a knowledgeable, experienced communicator and educator who is dedicated to raising the industry as a collaborative whole by building awareness and staying current with continuing education in my field. 

​​

My mission is to provide fast, effective pain relief to my clients with these gentle, non-invasive techniques. I provide excellent value with my commitment to ongoing education, integrity and professionalism.
