Hi

I was wondering: is the Bowen technique easier on the practitioner's hands/arms than other massage therapies; and: how much of a natural scientific bent do you have to have to learn it?!

Finally: can anyone recommend any course/teacher in the UK, please?

Many thanks xx

Hi Cinnamon,

I am a fairly new qualified Bowen Therapist. As a therapy it is very gentle on your own body and the level of pressure and types of moves are far removed from massage. I trained with the ECBS and they were fantastic. They have an easily accessible website which is worth a look.

Good luck if you decide to take this direction.

Tracey

Yes Bowen therapy is very easy on the body and it is possible to do several treatments in a day.

I trained through Bowtech here in Australia and the excellent teacher I learnt from is now teaching another form of Bowen - TBT 101 and I noticed she is teaching in the UK.

Hi

I find Bowen is very easy on the therapist - no heavy manipulation or force is used.
I trained with BowTech in the UK and found the training very thorough. The TBT 101 course as mentioned by Frangipani is part of the Emmett Therapies set of courses. Both BowTech and Emmett therapies have UK websites which show course dates and locations.

It is difficult to comment on the merits of one teacher over another as everyone has differnent needs and different learning styles.

If you want to practise as a Bowen practitioner you must also have Anatomy and Physiology qualification - but the websites will help you with pre-requisites for training.

Best wishes
If I can herlp further then please p.m. me if you have specific questions

Thanks very much, everyone!

I'm hopefully going to be booked on a course with ECBS, so it's good to hear they were fantastic - thanks, Tracey.

Really relieved to hear it's easy on the practitioner!!!

Thanks again xx
