ABOUT Dr. Rose Backman:
Over twenty-eight years ago Rose’s husband was murdered outside of their home. She had two choices, heal or allow anger and grief to take over her life.
Rose chose to heal her emotional and mental pain. By refusing to be a victim, she discovered that emotional polarity treatment was her ultimate way to heal and recover. If Dr. Rose can empower herself, after the unexpected loss of her husband, she can surely empower you!
Dr. Rose Backman has been in private practice for over 20 years. She received her Ph.D. in Clinical Nutrition at the American College of Independent Studies in Indianapolis. Dr. Backman is certified in Contact Reflex Analysis with Parker College of Chiropractic in Dallas, also certified in Nutrition Response Testing from Ulan Nutritional Systems, Inc. and has certification in Emotional Polarity Technique with Dr. Annette Cargioli, DC, in Indianapolis. With further training in cellular healing, Rose then developed her specialized and trademarked “Backman Emotional Technique,” that she believes is the missing link to a more immediate and effective healing.
Dr. Rose is a professional speaker and trainer who teaches workshops and her personally developed ‘Backman Emotional Technique’. She is a weekly guest on a local radio show, made many local and national TV and radio appearances, and has recorded multiple CD series.
