Dr . Bolliger’s training in Bowen began in 1992. Inspired by the endless possibilities inherent in this dynamic and evolving technique, by 1997 she had become one of the most experienced and recognized instructors of Bowen Technique in Canada and the world. With a deep personal connection to health advocacy, Dr Manon Bolliger is a dedicated proponent of patient consciousness in the healing process. Devoted to a healing movement that emphasizes listening to our symptoms rather than trying to cover them up, she helps her patients and students understand the vital role they have to play in their own unique healing process. Dr. Bolliger propels this vision through her work as a naturopathic doctor and esteemed homeopath, author of What Patient’s Don’t Say if Doctor’s Don’t Ask, and founder of Bowen College. Her passion for motivating students, patients, and health care professionals alike has made her a sought after educator, thought leader, visionary and healing expert. BowenFirst™ Therapy incorporates and is consistent with, current research on mind-body integration - a more holistic and advanced level of practice and care.
