Web Based Modules
There is much more to being a practitioner than just practical Bowen skills. These courses provided will enhance your understanding of the wider field of holistic health and help you to build an effective practice. They can be taken at any time, before, during or after your practical studies.
If you have studied these topics previously at an equivalent level, you can omit these courses if you submit evidence of prior study and take an assessment examination or, if you are looking to upgrade your previous studies, you can do that too.
There are text books to accompany these courses which you will be responsible for purchasing.
Please note that the first time you purchase a web based module you will be asked to set up an account on the ecourses checkout page.
