Learn Bowenwork

In 14 days of training with accredited instructors of the Bowen Therapy Academy of Australia, over a period of at least six months, you will learn a comprehensive health system that will enable you to aid the recovery from a large range of internal and musculo-skeletal conditions. You will learn procedures that balance the body overall, plus a range of procedures that address specific areas of the body, and still others to use in cases where conditions don't respond readily to the basic procedures.
The last two days are a thorough hands-on assessment, by a senior instructor, of every procedure that was taught in the first six modules.

The Curriculum
The Bowtech procedures are taught in seven modules, each 16 classroom hours long. The modules must be taken in sequence because each one reviews and builds on what was taught previously. These modules are generally taught in two consecutive days each, over a period of six months or more, with a maximum of two modules taught back-to-back.
The last seminar, "Module 7," is a thorough assessment of the material taught in the first six modules. Requirements for taking Module 7 include satisfactory completion of the written assessments and case study requirements at Modules 3 through 6, and waiting at least one month after Module 6.
Each country charges a standard fee per seminar. For details, consult the regional office of the country where you wish to study.
The content of each module is standard in every country where BTAA-accredited instructors teach. This means that you can travel and study with any combination of BTAA-accredited instructors and be assured that you will have learned the same procedures as all of your classmates, regardless of their previous instructors.
Every module includes:
* Demonstration of each procedure, with detailed explanation of anatomical landmarks
* Explanation and discussion of the procedures and indications for their use
* Detailed notes, with photographs and anatomical diagrams
* Extensive supervised hands-on practice, with feedback from the instructor(s)
* Ample review of procedures taught in previous modules
Practical and written assessments, with individual feedback, are given in Modules 3 through 6. You will also be required to submit written case studies (a total of ten) in those modules; and you will receive feedback from the instructor on your choice of procedures, the amount of work done, and other aspects of your work as indicated in your reports.
Module 7 is a full two-day assessment by a senior instructor, covering all procedures and aspects taught in the first six modules.
Accreditation as a practitioner requires passing the Module 7 assessment and submitting proof of three additional requirements:
* A recognized qualification in Anatomy and Physiology (100 - 120 hours in most countries)
* Experience running a business or a minimum of 20 hours of business education
* A current First Aid and/or CPR certificate (depending on the country)

Continuing Education
After successfully completing Module 7, practitioners are required to take a minimum of four days (32 contact hours) of Bowtech-approved courses every two years in order to maintain accreditation.
Some of the courses currently available in all countries are:
* Two Practitioner Days, taken together or separately:
Part A, all lower body procedures, exercises and protocols
Part B, all upper body procedures, exercises and protocols
* Advanced Seminar
Prerequisites apply, including the completion of Practitioner Courses at intervals of at least three months over a period of nine months after completion of Module 7.
* Attendance at Bowtech conferences
Within each two-year period, a maximum of eight continuing education hours may be earned by attending Bowtech conferences.
Other courses that are approved by Bowtech for continuing education are listed in the drop-down menu on the Learn Bowtech search page. Not every course is available in all countries. Contact your regional office for details.
Additional courses are continually under development to broaden the range of courses that qualify toward the continuing education requirement of 32 hours every two years.
