Dr Mary Bourke is a Chiropractor with a special interest area of oral-facial growth, development and function. Mary has a unique and experiential perspective on children’s health and development- particularly as it relates to oral facial function.

Mary has been in Chiropractic Practice for over 28 years and is a certified SOT practitioner and Craniopath. Mary is a great believer in the synergistic benefits of working with other health practitioners in a collaborative approach. This belief in collaboration has been very much a part of the philosophy behind Myo Munchee and is critical to getting best patient outcomes for oral facial and cranial growth, neurology and function of the stomatognathic system. One of her key professional goals with both chiropractic care and as the CEO of Myo Munchee, is to spread the word about the benefits of chewing and the denaturing effects of long term pacifier use.
