What is Bowen Therapy?

A gentle neuromuscular technique that uses small, brief rolling motions or stretches on key points on the skin and fascia to initiate a self-regulation: in tissue tensions and nervous system regulation.

It is gentle for both the patient and the practitioner!

Who is this course for?

The course is designed for those with prior and/or current experience and qualifications in the health and wellbeing field who would like to expand their skills – integrate Bowen into their practice or service and/or take the first step for full training into Bowen. 

It is recommended that you have prior experience and/or education working with peope and within the wellness space. Examples of this are, but are not limited to: Doctors, Nurses, OHS persons, Massage Therapists,  Kinesiologists, Physiotherapists, Chiropractors, Yoga teachers/therapists and all practitioners who are permitted to – in the scope of their current practice – to therapeutically touch a client/patient in a clinical setting. 

The course

During this 15 hour-2-day in-person course, Jenny will present to you the basic foundations of Bowen and you will learn to apply the Bowen “move” or manoeuvre which is quite unique. You will learn some key (and very useful!) Bowen sequences on different regions of the body. By the end of the 2 days, you will feel confident to practice at home and apply on your patients with health benefits. We will also cover basic evaluation methods, making it a truly comprehensive introduction course. You will receive close supervision and guidance to really master the Bowen “move” in a small group environment.

We also cover how to integrate the new skills into your practice no matter what modality you may be using currently. Bowen is a stand-alone technique however care must be taken in how it is combined with other therapies. 

Expect a great weekend with practical skills and knowledge that will start you on a gentle path to healing with the Bowen Technique.

Training in the Bowen Technique with Jenny: Following the introduction course(s), Jenny will schedule  a unique series of Bowen workshops 1 – 4, covering different regions of the body as well as delving deeper into the mechanisms of Bowen.  CPD applicable. 

The course is an interpretation of Tom Bowen’s work by © Jenny Petridis.

In summary, you will learn:

 

What Bowen Therapy is; it’s principles, characteristics and underpinning philosophies
How to conduct a basic evaluation prior to hands-on application
Learn to apply the unique Bowen “moves” to various regions of the body
How to incorporate your new skills in your own healing work
–   to ensure you come away from the course with confidence to use the skills in one-on-one sessions.

 

What Jenny brings to the course

Jenny’s healing career has spanned 3 different continents, building networks and speaking engagements about Bowen and fascia.  Though it’s not all science and biology.  Her  approach merges mind-body-spirit with the practical application and principles of Bowen- making for a unique course that caters for both the spiritual and science-minded bodyworker.  

Her knowledge in bodywork and healing has developed over 17 years – with training and practice in various modalities including Remedial massage, Thai Massage, Bowen therapy, Therapeutic yoga, Hatha/Iyengar yoga, Alexander Technique,  and a natural path into social tango dancing. All movement and manual techniques have added texture and depth to her career and philosophy about health. 

In her work, Jenny highlights intention in healing as just as important as developing tactile application and knowledge of the Technique itself.
