YOUR BOWEN THERAPIST is David (Dave) Burnett.
I came to Bowen therapy by a somewhat circuitous route. Like
many though, my initial cursory interest in the Bowen technique
became a desire to learn and practice when I saw, through
first-hand experience, the tangible and measurable results of
Bowen. For me, Bowen's effect was life changing.
I researched Bowen therapy extensively and explored many
options before deciding to undertake training with Gene Dobkin.
Gene, a Bowen practitioner and instructor for more than
fifteen years, has been exposed to the very best of Bowen and
taught numerous classes here in the US and around the world. He
has taught several interpretations of the Bowen technique,
including the original. He brings a wealth of knowledge and
experience to his training and I feel fortunate and blessed to
have benefited from his guidance. We continue to share our
experiences and evolve the work on an ongoing basis.
From the very beginning, I have thought of Bowen more as a
philosophy - a 'self healing experience' - rather than simply a
technique or a series of 'moves'. While remaining true to the
underlying precepts of Bowen, I have added my own
interpretations and therefore practice an expansive and highly
integrative form of Bowen therapy. It works for me and the many
hundreds of satisfied clients whose lives have been improved.
Conceptually and practically, my work is about HEALING
not TREATING. I stimulate the body to HEAL the underlying
cause of a problem rather than TREAT or mask the symptoms. The
body has a tremendous capacity to heal itself, it just needs
stimulation and focus, which the Bowen technique provides.
I work across a broad spectrum of
Conditions, best characterized into four general areas:
STRUCTURAL INTEGRITY - achieving and maintaining
structural integrity (a straight body) is central to
relieving and controlling most pain;
CHRONIC PAIN - including nerve pain, that has
not responded to other treatments: cases that 'have tried
everything and nothing worked' and cases that seem in a
state of 'hopelessness';
FIBROMYALGIA, CHRONIC FATIGUE and SYSTEMIC INFECTIONS
- typically, long standing, chronic cases where body
function is significantly impaired and daily life is a
EMOTIONAL - physical symptoms that are driven by an
My practical session work is focused into three areas:
RESULTS - relief of pain and suffering and the
restoration of structural integrity;
EDUCATION - understanding your body - how it's all
interconnected and why it hurts;
PREVENTION - simple things you can do to prevent
aggravating the condition as it heals.
The efficacy of my work has been recognized by a Medical
Doctor (MD), Dr Susan Debin, a Family Practitioner, who invited
me, in 2005, to work in her office. Her trust in me and her
willingness to direct patients to my work, has been
My experience has been that Bowen therapy can safely make a
positive difference in relieving pain and improving quality of
life, across all age groups - from children to the elderly. I
have experience of many illnesses and conditions responding
quickly and positively to Bowen therapy. Call me and lets get
the legacy of Tom Bowen working for you...
