About Gene

My largley mobile practice centers around Bowen Technique, with a number of other modalities that I have found complement it. Valuable influences include:

Positional Release

Polarity

Neuro-Fascial

Pain Elimination

With 28 years in practice, I have come to refer to the blending of these approaches as “Neural Touch”.

Everything, it seems, is about balance. You can’t ‘fix’ somebody like a car—the body will, wisely, resist too aggressive an approach. Likewise, doing massage that is merely palliative becomes less satisfying over time, and opportunities can be missed. My overall goal with Neural Touch is to reintroduce the nervous system to it’s native, self-regulating, healing mode. Most find that this gives stronger, quicker, and more lasting resolution with pain and movement issues, as well as other issues that are harder to define.

This system is safe and appropriate, and can be of help for humans of all ages and conditions, as well as animals (in my practice, dogs and horses). 

I attended one of the first Bowen classes in the U.S. in 1992. Following were multiple  qualifying, advanced, and instructor level classes in the Bowenwork and NST styles. 

I began teaching massage in 1986 – Bowen Technique in 1996. Since then I’ve taught hundreds of classes in the U.S., Canada, U.K, and Middle East — first, through the above-mentioned institutes, and afterwards on my own. NCBTMB approved, Bowen/Neural Touch classes are available wherever there is  enough call. I also offer Introductory Canine and Equine care clases.
