Bev was introduced to ABM through Fiona Mclagan when Bev was searching for help for her son who had suffered a serious head injury. From the first session observing Fiona work on her son, Bev recognized the power for change with this method. During Bev’s first session for herself, she felt the immediate pain relief and comfort in her body. She was able to re-engage with the activities she loved – gardening, swimming, walking, and dancing. She knew then, that she had to take the training.
Bev has graduated as an Anat Baniel Method® of Neuromovement® Practitioner as of January 2019, ABM™ Children's Mastery in November 2019, ABM™ Vitality and Anti-Aging in July 2021, and ABM™ High Performers in October 2021. She looks forward to offering this amazing technology to clients in the Cowichan Valley and beyond in in-person and online formats. As of September 2021, Bev is a student-practitioner of Chi Nei Tsang, adding a further dimension to her work.
