One of the greatest rewards of teaching Bowenwork is seeing the transformation it can lead to for students’ own healing after receiving the technique on their bodies, and the satisfaction of mentoring students in offering Bowenwork to their families, friends and clients, often with profound healing outcomes. Some people have discovered a whole new career for themselves as successful Professional Bowenwork Practitioners, after initially signing up for only a few Bowenwork classes ‘just to get a feel’ for the work!

Teaching allows Sandra to combine her extensive experience in nursing and holistic medicine when explaining the application of Bowenwork procedures, and helping students to assess clients’ health needs. Sandra has developed 2 continuing education classes to help expand Bowenwork practitioners’ clinical knowledge – ‘Bowenwork for Women’s Wellness’ and ‘Bowenwork For People Living With Cancer.’ Learning is a collaborative experience, and Sandra enjoys learning new information from her students that enrich her understanding of Bowenwork. She brings a warm sense of humour to her classes to enhance the learning process, and as a result, her classes are fun!
