Our Mission

The philosophy of Bowen College is thriving, not just surviving.

Our mission from the centre of our organisation, via our workshop leaders and tutors around the world, is to build a community of healers in every household.

We embrace the potential we all have to heal and recognise that the biggest barrier to health that we face is our ignorance of how incredible our body’s healing capacity can be. Our workshop leaders are committed to educating communities in this deeper understanding of our potential.

Bowen Therapy ignites our own innate knowledge of what our bodies need and what is best for our health, allowing us to rise above the commercialism and control of a system that tells us ‘doctor knows best’, ‘pharma knows best’ or ‘food producers know best’ about what we should eat, and how we should breathe and what we should do.

Where the Practitioners come in is that they become the expert deliverers of the pieces that the public does not need to learn or that it’s is not their passion to learn.

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 specific expertise with Bowen College UK students.

Jihan’s specialism is work that supports the realignment and function within and surrounding the temporomandibular joint  (TMJ); the impact this has (as well as the causes that make is so) through the entire human system.

It is with great enthusiasm that we can say 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’s passion for Bowen College UK brings together an understanding of the interconnectedness of Body and Mind.

This methodology underpins all of our work, seeking to put you, the student, at the centre of the teachings, so that we can continually evolve together.

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.


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.

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.
Manon Bolliger - Bowen College Founder

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.
