We live in a society that believes our diagnosis. But what if our body is smarter than we think? What if we each have our own high-quality internal pharmacy? And what if we can use something as simple as orchestrated touch to reboot our body—and then let it take care of us?
Dr. Manon Bolliger is a naturopathic doctor with 30 years of experience in reconnecting people to their body and taking ownership of their choices in health. As the Founder and CEO of Bowen College, she has trained more than 2,500 healthcare practitioners in her signature BowenFirst touch therapy methodology. Dr. Manon has been featured on ABC, CTV and NBC, and she is the bestselling author of What Patients Don’t Say If Doctors Don’t Ask and A Healer in Every Household.
