A Bowen Career

Are you looking for an innovative therapy to add to your existing practice or create a new one? Each of the 6 modules are held over 2 days once per month for six months followed by a 2 day certification module taught by a senior instructor of the Bowen Therapy Academy of Australia. Post certification modules are also taught up to Module 12 plus additional courses to maintain CEU’s offered internationally.

Training is structured on a module format, where each module needs to be taken consecutively. Each module includes a review of procedures learned in previous modules. Along with case studies, the module format helps ensure students are fully prepared for the final assessment (Certification Program only) and to begin active practice upon program completion.

At Bowen Training Academy, we teach Bowenwork/Bowtech® – the original Bowen Technique. This is an internationally recognized training program developed by The Bowen Therapy Academy of Australia. The content of each module is standard in every country where BTAA-accredited instructors teach.

Students may choose either program:

  • Certification Program
  • Non-Certification Program

Certification Program

This program is for allied health care providers that wish to add Bowen to their existing practice or establish a new one. Health care providers choose Bowenwork® for their clients’ improved health care for a variety of reasons:

  • to be self employed
  • to add another skill set to their existing practice
  • to reduce physical strain on the provider (a solution for therapists who may be physically challenged from more physical demanding types of bodywork) With this therapy there is minimal risk of repetitive strain or injury to the practitioner.
  • to start a new nursing independent practice.

Certification is granted by the Bowen Therapy Academy of Australia, the school responsible for the establishment of the Bowen Technique worldwide since 1984.

The Certification Program training consists of seven modules (including the assessment) and can be completed over a period of 8-12 months. See the Course Curriculum for a full description of each Module and full accreditation requirements.

Non-Certification Program

This program is available for those members of the public who wish to help family and friends. Modules 1-4 will give you procedures to address health care concerns in your family including cough and colds, sinus congestion, headaches, stress and anxiety, insomnia and acute injuries as they occur. It does not replace medical attention but gives you the tools to address issues until you are able to receive medical attention, when necessary. You can register for 1, 2, 3 or 4 modules depending on your needs and desires with each module taken consecutively.


At Bowen Training Academy, we recognize that “life happens”. In either program, if an interruption occurs in your training due to unforeseen circumstances, you may return to the program picking up at the module where you left off; however, you will need to demonstrate that you have maintained your proficiency in the procedures which you previously studied.
