We look forward to teaching you Tom Bowen’s remarkable technique.

Course Information

A brief introduction

The Bowen Technique was developed by the late Tom Bowen of Geelong Australia (1916 – 1982). This hands-on body therapy consists of gentle rolling movements over muscle bellies, tendons, ligaments and neurovascular bundles. Students are often amazed at the profound effects that result from even their earliest practice. Practitioners who may be adept at a number of modalities are usually delighted with the results that Bowtech delivers.

There are currently over 70 Registered Bowen Instructors worldwide. These highly skilled practitioners have been qualified by the BTAA to teach the Bowen Technique. Registered BTAA Instructors review the coursework each year with Ossie and Elaine to ensure accuracy in teaching. It is the intent of the Academy to remain true to the original teachings of Tom Bowen.

The BTAA’s international teaching system, revised in 2002, consists of seven modules which include review of all previous material within each successive module. This allows for increased retention and refinement of the technique over a period of at least six months. Additional requirements for full accreditation help to ensure competence and professionalism. The criteria for accreditation are the successful completion of the following, subject to evaluation by a senior instructor:

  • Modules 1 through 7
  • Ten case studies
  • Written and practical assessments
  • A recognised Anatomy and Physiology qualification
  • Current certificate in First Aid / CPR
