Sue Burgman, Anat Baniel Method (ABM) NeuroMovement Practitioner
Sue was born and raised in Switzerland. She moved to Canada in 2005, where she pursued an academic career in the Insurance Industry. When her son was born in 2014, their family’s life changed dramatically. After his birth their family struggled with challenges they never expected to encounter. Her son was diagnosed with a rare genetic condition, causing symptoms similar to Cerebral Palsy. For years they tried every suggested and referred approach they were told about to help him improve his quality of life. Things were very slow and little difference was noted. Her family then found ABM NeuroMovement, through which her son has excelled far further than his prognosis suggested he ever would in his lifetime. He has shown improvements on all levels, physically, in communication, cognitively, as well as emotional/behaviourally, without any pharmaceutical medications. Because this work has been so meaningful for her son’s development, but not very easily accessible due to a lack of practitioners in Canada, Sue joined the intense practitioner training in the United States in Fall of 2017, to enable her to help her son at home, as well as help other families find this beautiful, life changing path.
Sue is still in intensive training for the Children’s Mastery ABM Neuromovement until November 2019. Until then, she is accepting appointments for adults. Once completed, Sue is looking forward to specializing in the area of helping children with special needs.
To learn more about ABM Neuromovement please visit the detailed description under services offered on our website. Wild Heart Therapies and Farmacy is more than honoured to have Sue Burgman join our professional family and be able to offer this rare, effective and amazing technique to the people of the East Kootenays and beyond.
