Dr. Rose Backman

Ph.D., CN, CRA, BET, EPT
Expert in emotional and physical kinesiology

She learned about connection and being grounded from her early years as a farm girl in rural Saskatchewan. This helped Dr. Rose move through life’s events, from a young wife and mother to a depressed and bewildered widow after the shocking murder of her then husband. This shaped her but did not define her. In finding and keeping her power her life’s joy for the last 30 years is in helping women to find their voices.

Today, Dr. Rose Backman is among few distinguished Canadians that offers a science-based practice to integrate emotional and physical healing mainstream and alternative medicine modalities. Under the mentorship of Dr. Dick Versendaal for 10 years, she learned hands-on, his Contact Reflex Analysis technique. Always seeking, she pushed the limits of this Kinesiologybased discipline to explore the emotional and nutrition aspects of unlocking muscle memory. This lead to her completing a Ph.D. in Clinical Nutrition in 1997 from American College of Independent Studies, Indianapolis. Blending disciplines, she innvoated what is now the Backman Emotional Technique ©.

In private practice as well as community workshops, radio and most recently, social media, she continues to touch the lives of thousands of people to break unhealthy beliefs. Her no-nonsense style yet compassion connection helps people find courage and power within themselves to challenge their patterns of addiction, depression, weight, relationship failures and financial struggles. A desire for change and willingness is all that’s required to take the first step.

Although a bestselling author, radio personality and lecturer locally and internationally, Dr. Rose continues to challenge herself; most recently by creating Facebook Live events.

Her captivating essence will compel you to connect with your authentic self and to stand up for who you are. Young at heart, entrepreneur, wife, mother, and humanitarian, Dr. Rose will help you grow your own personal health and well being.

I could hardly breathe as I was diagnosed with asthma. After 4 hours of working
on my issues regarding my mother I walked out of her office and threw my inhaler
in the garbage. That was over 20 years ago and have not used an inhaler since

Dr. Rose says it like it is and that is what I needed. I am a quiet, reserved woman who
gave herself permission to have a voice and be heard. Thanks for all your support over
the years helping me understand it’s ok to be ME!
