Certified Response5 Students

Once upon a time, not that long ago, there were only a chosen few that qualified for Response5 certification. Those were the ones whom continued on with their studies to become Animal Bowen Therapy Practitioners.

There were dozens and dozens who took the Response5 weekend course through out the past few years, yet certification was not an option for them at the time.

Things have changed!

Response5 has gone Global.

...and now you too qualify for certification!

Response 5 is a unique technique, it is sweet , painless, and extremely effective. Since the first treatments I have seen the first positive effects. Every animal would need it, because it does not work only on the body, but also on the motive (behaviour) part, so it is a complete method and this excites me. I thank Debi for this skill, professionalism and love, in teaching this technique.

Discovering Response5 was the answer to a desperate prayer for a miracle.  Learning and using Response5 has been an incredible journey from despair to joy and wonder. My passion has always been animals, but I never dreamed that I would be involved in restoring their health.  When my 8 year old German Shepherd was diagnosed with DM, I wanted something that would work and not be a burden to him or our family.  This therapy has restored his mobility and vitality, as well as that of others that I have been fortunate enough to work with. I look forward to continuing to learn from Debi with level 1 and 2.

Kathy Morton ~ I am currently enrolled in Bowen for Humans and a Bowen colleague pointed me in the direction of Canine Bowen and that is where it began. Bowen was going to be my journey, whether it be humans, horses, dogs, cats or any other type of animal, I knew I was going to be able to help and have a fulfilling and rewarding career.I have three dogs. Two of them have hip problems and one is very timid. Since I started Response 5 on them, there has been a noticeable difference. It brings much joy knowing that they are probably feeling a lot more comfortable and in less discomfort.

Since I have seen results first hand in my own dogs it makes me very excited to help other animals and this has resulted in my excitement to become a Practitioner.

Donna Woodstock ~ I've always had a strong passion for anything health related and animals. Becoming a certified Animal Bowen Physiotherapy Practitioner has been one of the most valuable and rewarding experiences in my life and has opened a door of exploration in which I know will never close!

Alanna is a huge Response5 addict!)

Joan Dohey ~ I'm a retired school teacher and a Certified Human Bowen Therapist since 2011. In early 2015, during the final months of my beloved border collie Jewels' life I adapted some human Bowen moves to help ease any discomfort. Around the same time my human clients were inquiring about Canine Bowen. I have now extended my passion for helping animals to heal, thanks to Debi Famelos at the Canine Bowen Institute.
