3) Not sure yet
What is involved in a Reboot your Body course?
This is a two day course where you will be introduced to the Bowen move and taught a full body treatment. The environment is relaxed and informative. There is no pressure to perform and plenty of time for practice. The work that you learn you can use immediately on family and friends. This is also a great first step if you are thinking of becoming a practitioner.
How do I register for a course?
You can book online or by calling or emailing us.
The first time you book on a course online with Bowen College, you will need to set up an account (using the book now buttons and then submitting your contact details).
Do I need any qualifications to start the Certified Bowen Healthcare Therapist programme?
In short, no. We teach you everything you need to know!
You can start with the Reboot your Body workshop to introduce you to the technique.
If you already have experience in health care, you can choose this course as an introduction, or start straight away into the Core Programme.
What is included in the CBHT Core programme?
The core programme consists of Healing Accelerator workshops, in which you will be taught the BowenFirst™ practical skills – including protocols for lower and upper body. These workshops can be taken as many times as you need, for no extra cost.
You will have access to the Reboot Homecare Kit, with online videos showing the Bowen moves and lots of useful information about holistic health.
There is also a monthly online Q&A session for you to discuss any case study queries.
What else do I need to study to become a Certified Bowen Healthcare Therapist?
In our experience it takes far more than how to perform Bowen moves to be a great practitioner.
Alongside the Core Bowen programme, you will study our Essential Skills courses (Anatomy & Physiology, Muscle Anatomy, First Aid).
Our students also study three online modules (Nutrition and Bowen, Bowen Meridian Connections, Business and Ethics). This gives you additional, relevant knowledge that will support you to be successful in your practice once qualified.
If you have prior study in any of these areas, we will take that into account.
I already have a some prior qualifications – do I still need to take the Essential Skills courses before starting the CBHT programme?
No – we are happy to accept equivalent levels of study for the Essential Skills – all you need to do is send us evidence of your qualifications and for some courses take an examination to demonstrate your knowledge.
Contact us to see if your qualifications would be accepted.
Can I pay by instalments?
Absolutely! We can spread the cost of CBHT training into monthly payments.
Contact us to discuss this option.
How do I access the Web Based Modules?
When you book one of these modules you will be given your own access key to an online training platform.
This will allow you to work through the module in your own time. There are assessments as you proceed, to check your understanding.
At the end of the course you will complete and submit a final assessment under examination conditions.
Full guidance will be given with your course confirmation.
How long does it take to become a Certified Bowen Health Therapist?
After taking our Certified Bowen Health Therapist programme, you will be required to complete practical and theory exams, and submit your case studies.
To complete the entire training can take from 8 – 12 months depending on your schedule and class schedules. If you prefer to study over a longer period of time, that is fine too!
Is Bowen like a massage?
No, Bowen is not like massage. It can be as relaxing if not more so in some cases as a massage but a Bowen treatment involves a series of much lighter moves on specific areas of the body.
It can be performed directly on skin or over light clothing.
Can you use Bowen with other therapies like massage and acupuncture?
A Bowen Therapy session asks the body to reboot / reset itself to allow healing to occur and the results can be experienced for up to a week after the session.
With this in mind it is advised that you receive no other body work in the week following your Bowen session in order to gain maximum effect.
