Like many therapists, Donna's personal journey and interest in Bowen Therapy began when she experienced health problems. Unlike other therapists, the health issues were not related to her but to her Golden Retriever, Scapa, who was healthy and active until one day she injured her stifle plowing through snow banks. After numerous attempts at addressing the problem, with little success, she realized she needed to do more research to find a solution. Donna discovered Bowen Therapy and was amazed at the results she saw while treating Scapa. She loved the results so much she decided to make the leap and become a Bowen Therapist, which has been one of the most valuable experiences of her life. Donna was able to combine her passion for health and helping others including pets, and is now certified to work with both animals and people.

Donna's work as a Bowen Therapist and Approved Practitioner Scar Tissue Release can directly affect the health and mobility of people and animals in many ways. It has benefited Scapa and has helped her recover from her injury. Donna has worked on horses, lizards, dogs, and cats and is hoping in the future to have the opportunity to work on a variety of animals and their owners.
