Advanced Bowen Therapy Training
with Jonathan Damonte
A unique opportunity to learn this revolutionary therapeutic system in a beautiful setting.
Pain is the number one reason patients will seek the services of alternative healthcare providers and your success in treating pain will be the main driver for the majority of referrals to your practice. Bowen therapy is unique as a healthcare modality because of its efficiency in the treatment of pain.
It is a hands-on bodywork technique that is both simple and effective. Developed in the 1970’s by Tom Bowen in Australia, Bowen therapy is still fairly new to the world.
Whether you're a practitioner such as a chiropractor, naturopathic doctor, massage therapist, etc., or a newcomer to healthcare, Bowen therapy provides many simple tools that are shown to work for chronic pain, inflammation and misalignment.
It is unique not because of how it is performed but for how well it works. Best of all, it is easily learned.

We’ll enjoy 5 days of live classes and clinical training covering a review of Modules 1-4 and the Advanced Procedures of Bowen Therapy Modules 5-8 in beautiful Costa Rica.
There will be plenty of supervised practice time to review each lesson. The class will also take the case history of live patients as a support for understanding the steps to a successful therapeutic outcome for real pathologies. This clinical experience will help clarify the scope of Bowen Therapy. This course is an intemnsive 4 modules and compares to 6 Modules of other Bowen Therapy Schools.
I am so grateful that I learned Bowen Therapy from Jonathan first, his words are still in my head and I still use his books even after attending three other schools of Bowen therapy.
After adding Bowen Therapy to my Naturopathy practice I'm able to treat chronic pain more easily and I'm busier than ever. Thank you for making it so easy to learn this wonderful therapy.

There are no absolute prerequisites and the students attending come from a variety of backgrounds. For most students it is best to complete the first 2 lessons of Bowen Online (Complimentary 1 year subscription online) to be prepared for the class ahead of time. Anatomy and physiology will be covered during the class but for those with less background or experience they can watch the online lessons before the class as these lessons do contain detailed anatomy relating to the procedures.
This live training satisfies the requirements for becoming a Certified Bowen Therapist, see here for complete information on the required steps.
