I qualified as a Bowen Practitioner in October 2005 and am fully registered with The Bowen Association UK. I am also an EMRT (equine muscle release therapy) practitioner – The original Bowen Technique on horses.
To be a Bowen Practitioner and remain a registered therapist you must be fully insured, have current first aid and hold qualifications in anatomy & physiology. All Registered Bowen Practitioners must complete professional development training every year. This ensures our skills are kept finely tuned and true to the technique as taught by Tom Bowen.
I came to Bowen after being a chronic back and shoulder pain suffer which brought on headaches and migraines. I tried chiropractic treatments which produced mild relief for only a few days. So I decided to try Bowen and after a few Bowen Treatments my back pain was much reduced and the shoulder pain disappeared, I also noticed I could suddenly sit tall and straight on my horse where I had previously felt as though I had to fight myself not to tip forwards when riding. This allowed me to enjoy my hobby in comfort and with confidence.
Due to my personal experience, I decided that I should train in this wonderful therapy so that others can also experience the benefits of Bowen and have been treating people ever since at my clinic in Warsash, Hampshire.
