What Is Bowen Therapy?

Bowen Therapy is a holistic and restorative soft tissue bodywork that uses targeted “Bowen moves” – specific sequences of gentle hand manipulations – to stimulate muscles, tendons, ligaments, nerves, and the fascia i.e. the soft, connective tissue underneath the skin that surrounds the muscles and organs.

This therapy is designed to relieve accumulated tension and stress throughout the body, allowing the nervous system to reset itself and the body to function optimally to self-heal. By restoring balance to the structural and functional systems of the body, Bowen Therapy enhances overall well-being.

Unlike other therapies that focus solely on physical symptoms, Bowenfirst™ Therapy addresses physical, chemical, emotional, spiritual and mental aspects of each patient during and after treatment, offering a holistic healing approach to restoring health and wellness.

Upon Graduation, You Will:

You will have the tools and the skills needed to become a Certified Bowen Therapist (CBHT)

You will bring health and wellness back to your clients’ lives

Founder & CEO of Bowen College

“25+ years ago I found myself in the oncology ward facing the treatment protocol for stage 4 cancer…a hysterectomy. Nurses were hovering around me telling me that it was a standard procedure, and if I cared for my three children, it was an absolute must to proceed with the surgery.

This was a turning point in my life.

I made the courageous decision to walk out of the oncology clinic, despite all the guilt and fear techniques, because I knew how important it was to be aligned with my core health values. It is what saved my life. I knew I had to find a better overall natural solution, and I am here today to tell the story….over two decades later.

My journey led me to discover the healing power of Bowen Therapy as well as the understanding of the mind body connection to health and wellness…but why am I the one to educate you?

As a recently retired board-certified naturopathic physician since 1992, and a Registered Bowen Health Therapist (RBHT), I’ve treated an average of 150 patients per week with Bowenfirst™ Therapy all without burning myself out. I have successfully helped people ranging from rural farmers in Nova Scotia and stressed-out CEOs in Toronto, to tri-athletes here in Vancouver.

Since founding Bowen College in 2008, I have trained thousands of students to become successful Bowen Therapists and continue to educate those seeking a better way to treat their family, friends, and clients.”

The truth is that practitioners tend to spend most of their time looking for new clients when if they spent 80% of their time nurturing and making sure that they are giving their patients everything they need, they would be ahead of the game.

Expand for Answers to Frequently Asked Questions 


Q. How long does it take to complete the program?

A.  While the entire program is self-paced, a student could reasonably complete the BowenFirst™ Therapy training aspect (Modules 1 through 3) within 9 months to 1 year (depending on their commitment to the program, their schedule, and class scheduling). This would allow them to begin working with patients while simultaneously completing the Wide Awake Business Marketing (Modules 4 through 5) to further their practice.

For every student, the journey is personal and we encourage all prospective students to talk with a member of our team  or registrar to discuss a realistic view of completion and the time you have for study and availability to travel for the practical training portion.

Q. How fast can I recover my costs?

  1. Once you are qualified for Bowen Therapy certification (completion of Modules 1 through 3), you can begin practicing BowenFirst™ Therapy on clients. On average, new practitioners see 2 clients per hour. By committing 5 hours per day at 2 clients per hour, it would take approximately 1 month to recoup your tuition fees for the Passionate Profitable Practitioner Program.

Q. Can I study online?

  1. The bulk of the program can be completed online at your own pace. Further in-person training (case studies, supervised treatments, preceptorship, and the hands-on final exam) allows you to dive deep into BowenFirst™ Therapy as you will have the opportunity to practice and receive Bowen first-hand. Please note in-person training sessions are available at different times and locals throughout the year at the following locations: British Columbia, Ontario, Alberta

Q. Can I transfer outside credits towards any portion of the Passionate Profitable Program?

  1. Yes. Bowen College accepts transfer credits from a multitude of institutions around the world. Depending on your training background and where you received your training, we honor past practical training in Bowen Therapy toward our certification program. Please book a call  with our team to discuss your current educational training for a full assessment of your needs.

Q. Do you offer Continuing Education credits?

  1. All of our courses are approved for the Canadian Examining Board of Health Care Practitioners (CEBHCP) for continuing education credits. Our hands-on training is also approved by the CMTBC, CMTNL, and CONO.
