Sandra Leahy Gustafson BSN RN, is a senior instructor with the Bowen Therapy Academy of Australia (BTAA), and lives in Northern California, USA.
“Since 1982, I have engaged myself in studying and working with many conventional and complementary health care modalities, in order to support clients in attaining optimal wellness.
In my Registered Nursing career, I worked mostly in emergency and intensive care medicine, supporting people’s health in times of crisis and in need of acute medical intervention.
I have a strong interest in preventative and natural health care, supporting clients who seek to enhance the quality of their health. I see my role as an educator and a facilitator, supporting clients in empowering themselves to stay well and counseling clients in choosing the best healthcare options available to them.
I am a strong advocate for encouraging clients to focus on eating fresh, organic and unprocessed food, exercising regularly and maintaining a positive attitude as an antidote to the stressful situations we may find ourselves in.”
