Tsunesaburo Makiguchi (1871-1944) once said, ‘Looking concretely at the different forms of value that together constituted happiness, “beauty” is an esthetic value that enhances specific aspects of the individual’s life; “gain” refers to all that concretely enhances the entirety of an individual’s existence; and “good” is that which enhances the life of an entire community or society. Here, also, value does not point to something abstract or disembodied, but to the positive transformation of our actual experience of life.”

Jihan has, over her years in the Bowen world, built a wide network of specialists who are keen to share their expertise with Bowen College UK students.

We are excited to announce that Bowen College UK has the collaborative support of Dr Jeffrey Brown and Dr Brendan Stack in the USA, who specialise in Sleep and TMJ therapy and Dr Robert Schleip, Biologist and Professor at Ulm University, Germany. Jihan also shares this area of expertise, supporting the realignment and function, within  and surrounding the temporomandibular joint (TMJ), which has an impact throughout the entire human system.

Jihan is part of the Fascial Net Plastination Project and is able to deliver, through Bowen College, the most up to date advances of fascial understanding – a key feature of why Bowen works so effectively. 

Jihan Adem - Bowen College UK Founder

Strengthening the capacity of people to create value (to effect the positive transformation of reality) has been Jihan’s driving force throughout her career.

Her passion for learning, teaching and tutoring is profound and she very much looks forward to welcoming you to Bowen College here in the UK.

“I absolutely love the moment when people who have come into the training room and make the discovery that they too can positively impact the body’s tissues with Bowen. As Bowen is a therapy that carries so few contraindications, I feel passionately that we should make this wonderful technique, as widely available as possible and I am committed to raising the standards of Bowen Therapy Education.”


Bowen College’s Founder

With a deep personal connection to health advocacy, Dr Manon Bolliger is a dedicated proponent of patient consciousness in the healing process. Devoted to a healing movement that emphasizes listening to our symptoms rather than trying to cover them up, she helps her patients and students understand the vital role they have to play in their own unique healing process.

Dr. Bolliger propels this vision through her work as a naturopathic doctor and esteemed homeopath, author, founder of Bowen College, and director of Cornerstone Health Centre. Her passion for motivating students, patients, and health care professionals alike has made her a sought after educator, thought leader, visionary and healing expert.

Dr. Bolliger helps patients discover that freedom is health – on a physical, emotional, mental and spiritual level. From rural farmers in Nova Scotia, Corporate CEO’s in Toronto and Tri-Athletes in BC, Dr. Bolliger’s expertise has guided thousands of patients and helped them learn how to listen to their bodies and heal. Dr. Bolliger’s training in Bowen began in 1992. Inspired by the endless possibilities inherent in this dynamic and evolving technique, by 1997 she had become one of the most experienced and recognized instructors of Bowen Technique in Canada and the world.

The Bowen College was the first Canadian College of its kind, founded by Dr. Bolliger to embrace the legacy of Tom Bowen and incorporate her years of experience and expertise into programs that educate practitioners and patients from all walks of life, on how to bring effective, pain-free healing to their patients, clients, friends, family and loved ones.

Manon Bolliger - Bowen College Founder

Bowen College is home to BowenFirst™ Therapy, an approach to Bowen that Dr. Bolliger developed in her years of experience, teaching, training and practicing as a naturopathic doctor. BowenFirst™ Therapy incorporates and is consistent with, current research on mind-body integration that educates her students on a more holistic and advanced level of practice and care.

As founder of Bowen College, Dr. Bolliger has taught thousands of professional health care practitioners, including doctors, psychologists, nurses, homeopaths, sports therapists, chiropractors, osteopaths and many other practitioners in the healing arts, how to bring effective, pain-free healing to their patients with BowenFirst™Therapy.

As an educator and mentor she has found that practitioners and patients are seeking a deeper level of healing. In 2016 she is suspending her practice in order to focus her attention on bringing BowenFirst™ Therapy to the world, and raising patient and practitioner consciousness to embrace a new paradigm of healing – that healing starts with you.
