Training in the Bowen Technique (Bowtech) is divided into seven Modules. Each Module is two days, and usually taught in pairs (1&2, 3&4, 5&6), with the seventh module for final evaluation. The training sessions are spread over time to allow for practice and integration. The minimum time for completion of all seven modules is one year.
Each Module consists primarily of hands-on training. You learn through demonstration and immediate practice of the appropriate Bowen moves for your level. Written and practical assessments monitor your progress, and case studies are required as part of your training. There are three comprehensive training manuals.
Module 1: procedures for lower back, upper back, neck, kidney, head.
Module 2: procedures for hamstrings, respiratory, shoulders, cramp
Module 3: procedures for pelvis, elbow & wrist, sacrum, knee. Review of previous modules.
Module 4: procedures for upper respiratory tract and tempero-mandibular joint, ankle & foot procedures including strapping techniques, babies & children, forearm and Bowen seated. Review of previous modules.
Module 5: procedures for gall bladder, chest, coccyx, additional shoulder procedures. Revision of previous modules.
Module 6: procedures for bed-wetting, buttock pains, bursitis, perineum, thoracic, recommendations to aid conception. Review of previous modules.
Module 7: Review and assessment of all Bowtech procedures to assess competency. Successful candidates will receive a Diploma of proficiency from the Bowen Therapy Academy of Australia (BTAA) .
You may start your training without a certificate in Anatomy and Physiology (A&P), however an A&P certificate is a requirement before taking Module 7 and qualifying for practitioner status. A&P Courses are available online. A First Aid certificate is also a requirement before accreditation.
Should you change countries mid-way through your training – it’s no problem – the course content remains the same in other all countries where the Bowen Technique is taught, such as France, Germany, Italy, Denmark, Greece, UK, USA, Canada, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, etc. You would slot into the next module without any effort.
