Bowen Technique

What Is Bowen?

The Bowen technique is a dynamic system of muscle and connective tissue therapy. It utilises small but measured inputs to the body stimulating the body to heal itself, often profoundly.

Bowtech is the longest established training course for Bowen in the UK and Europe

Welcome to the official UK website for Training in the Original Bowen Technique

 As the longest-established training programme for Bowen in the UK and Europe, Bowen Training UK offers a unique opportunity to learn from the original pioneers of the Bowen Technique (Bowtech). 

Under the auspices of the Bowen Therapy Academy of Australia, since 1993 we have trained more practitioners in the original Bowen Technique than any other college. We are proud that Bowtech is now seen as a benchmark for similar programmes. 

 Our Bowtech therapists form part of an international network of Academy-registered practitioners influencing health care in over 30 countries around the world. Only Bowtech gives access to the full range of procedures documented directly from founder Tom Bowen (1916 – 1982), who developed this unique therapy in his clinic in Victoria, Australia.

Since then, his work has been continued by Ossie and Elaine Rentsch (pictured left) ensuring more and more people can benefit from this gentle yet dynamic therapy which has been shown to have a profound effect on the body.

Bowen Training UK is the only college to have extensive support throughout the world with over 120 accredited teachers.  Only Bowtech gives access to the full range of procedures documented by Oswald Rentsch directly from Tom Bowen himself.  

No previous experience is needed to start learning the Bowen Technique which comprises seven basic modules.  Our team of instructors, who have completed their own accredited intensive training programme, provides advice and support throughout.  

Don’t miss the opportunity to learn this extraordinary method with the longest established and most prestigious Bowen training organisation in the UK!

  • Covid and courses

    With the news that all Covid-19 restrictions have been lifted our requirements for course PPE and policies has also changed.  Across the board we are still implementing the frequent use of hand sanitiser, this will be available on the course, or you can bring your own.  We do ask that you do a lateral flow test before your course and if you test positive to inform your instructor who will then make the decision as to whether you can take the course.  We are aware that self-isolating after a positive test result is no longer necessary, but we ask you to consider others on your course.  Some instructors have other requirements in place so please check with your instructor if you have any questions.
