The Bowen Technique or Bowen Therapy, as it is commonly known originates from Australia and is a form of soft tissue manipulation. It is a treatment that consists of sets of challenge like moves on muscle, nerves and tendons followed by short pauses to allow the area worked on to respond. The procedures are performed in series according to the presenting complaints. Bowen Therapy can be used as a full-body therapy to address systemic issues or can be a treatment for specific areas of concern where it can be integrated with any form of bodywork.

Class Format

The class is a hands on workshop where each student is supervised and given the time to fully understand the finer points of each step of the lesson according to their own learning process. All procedures are presented with overhead projection, then explanation and discussion followed first by demonstration and finally the students get time to practice and apply each leasson on one another.


The lessons from previous modules are reviewed at each successive module and wherever possible actual patients are bought to the class for the purposes of understanding patient management.

Student to Instructor Ratio:

Class sizes are kept to a minimum of 12 students per instructor.

  1. Could you please send me confirmation for my payment? I ordered Modul 1-2 in Ontario this July.
    Thanks Veronika

    1. Dear Veronika, it was received and I’m sorry you didn’t receive any confirmation. I’ll get an official receipt sent today.

    Am I understanding that I can be certified at 1 level after modules 1-4 along with hands-on live classes. Then there is another certification level 5-6 modules. Then another 7-8. Is that correct?

    1. Hello, the steps are as follows:
      Modules 1-6 via live classes
      Modules 1-4 online
      120 hours Anatomy & Physiology
      100 clinical/practice hours
      The Bowen Therapist Certification Exam

    Hi Johnathan, are the new online procedures available with the monthly subscription? Also does it give access to your anatomy lectures?

    1. Yes, the content including the new lessons is available to all subscribers, monthly and annual.

    Hi Jonathan,
    I’m interested in becoming certified. Do you have any live training scheduled in 2018 for Atlantic Canada?


    1. Dear Wanda, I would be very pleased to travel to teach in the maritimes or elsewhere in Canada and have done so on many occasions. The usual way I go about this is to rely on those that might be able to organize with a space and a network of potential students. Please let me know if that interests you.

    Hi Jonathan,
    Do you ever teach in Toronto? If not would you have a recommendation of a great teacher?
    Thank you

    1. Hi, there isn’t a way for me to know whose doing good work teaching. Perhaps ask other local practitioners their thoughts. I do sometimes manage to get a group in Toronto though I am more focused on teaching here on Salt Spring Island BC where it is getting known as a destiation for therapy training.

    Any classes offered in Europe? Thanks

    1. Thank you for your interest. There are several options throughout Europe and I would expect these to be fairly standard in the teaching of the Bowen Therapy procedures. There are plenty of students of these other schools that also use the online lessons of Bowen Online to get the most out of their studies. Here are a few sites with classes about Europe: or

    In your techniques do you cover saitica as well.

    1. Yes, sciatica is covered throughout the lessons as it is a fundamental condition that Bowen Therapy treats.

  2. Hi there,
    Wondering if there will be any live classes offered this fall?

    1. Yes, see

      1. Great! Thank you!

    Hello Jonathan, Will there be any classes offered in Ontario in the future? Modules 1 to 6 or 1 to 8? Thanks. T.

    Hola Jonathan. I am a kinesiology living I Spain Madrid.Already toke Module 1 and 2 but would like to finish Bowen formation with your online courses.
    A friend, Bowen therapist in Portugal spoke me very well about your training practice.
    How does the online course works? Could I start right now? Price? Videos and tutorials available? How can I get a certificate after finalising it?
    Thank you very much in advance.
    best, Pepa

    1. Iit is possible to have a certificate after completing the online lessons. The reason is that you have already taken a live class. In a situation like yours we can book a video class where I get to see you at work and can give some feedback about your technique and areas where there are adjustments to make in the way we work muscle and move skin to access it. Plus, more fine tuning of your technique.

      The steps for you are:
      Take the online classes, the exam.
      Arrange a video lesson when you can have a person to work on.
      Complete 100 clinical hours or practice, you record these. (e.g. 33 people of 3 treatments)

      Here is a link to my clinic website schedule and I would suggest the 90 min Video Consultation option as the appropriate amount of time.

    I am looking for some clarification:
    There is NO offered full – class structured course available in Canada?

    So is it that I would do the online courses and then head to a certification day in order to complete this program in full.

    Many thanks ahead!

    1. Hi, there are full schedules of Modules 1-8 classes averrable in Ontario and BC in Canada. As well, in Los Angeles. View the full schedule hereAll Classes.

    I live in DALLAS TX, and I would like to learn directly from a teacher and have practice during the courses if is possible.
    Do you have any time for Dallas in your schedule ?

    1. Hi, so sorry for the long delay in responding. I can always make time to teach in any area if there are enough students to justify it. I can teach a minimum of 6 students so if that is something you think can be organized,let’s try to make it happen.

    Hi,I am a Europe located ,interested in your Certification course but it’s too geogrphicaly and finantially unconvenient to attend a Live class :-) so please is it possible you organize some live classes in Europe? Thanks.

    1. Hi Larissa, I would come to Europe if there are enough students. If you have any ideas to how to organize a group that might help me get started there. Best wishes

    2. Whereabouts are you in Europe. If you are able to help organize a location and date I can promote the class. If you have any ideas let’s talk about the possibility as I can come anytime there is a request and a real opportunity to have a class to cover the expense.

    Please advise if there is any online course for module 7 & 8?

    Thank you

    1. Thank you for enquiring. At this time the only modules online are 1-4. The main reason is that modules 5-8 make sense to utilize once a person has some proficiency and more importantly experience with the most commonly used procedures, those taught in Modules 1-4. There are digital and printed manuals 1-8 available at

    Hello Jonathan,
    It’s me again!! I will register for the 8 modules that you will teach over a course of two weeks at CCNM this spring. My goal is to be a CERTIFIED BOWEN THERAPIEST. REGARDING THE ANATOMY,PHYSIOLOGY AND CLINICAL HOURS, as I referred in my previous conversation I am a 4th year student at CCNM,
    DOES THIS EXEMPT ME from this requirement as I completed equivalent courses in the college
    Also, as I a Clinic Intern at the college clinic, where I already completed 500 Clinic hours and 200 patient contact using naturopathic modalities. Moreover, I am an International medical graduate ( Anesthesiologist from Egypt) I had 9 years of experience as a registrar of anesthesia and completed residency of Anesthesia in a University hospital in Egypt. Does that all count towards the clinic hours and my bachelor of medicine and surgery transcript from there count towards the anatomy and physiology requirements ? I also have post graduate studies in Anatomy and physiology as part of my Master Degree of Anesthesia!
    Also, Regarding the on line exams do I have to sit both exams ( the practioner and the therapiest or only the therapist one) how much does it cost for the exams and for the whole process of certification.
    To be honest, THE DRIVING FORCE behind registering for those 8 in class modules is to be a certified Therapist as this certification will help me when I go back to my home country where I practice pain management. WHAT ARE THE CHANCES TO BE CERTIFIED ONCE I FINISHED THE 8 IN CLASS MODULE GIVEN MY EDUCATION AND BACKGROUND.
    Thank you very much and see you Feb 17 at CCNM
    Kindest Regards,

    Jonathan, I am looking into completing the training you offer.

    So, my understanding is this : If I register for the Gold subscription, I can complete modules 1-4 online and then will have to take a live class for modules 5-6, which would be followed by the exam to become a CBP.

    Modules 7-8 also require to attend a live class, ending with the exam to become a CBT.

    I have a few questions. 1)Are you planning on offering a live class for modules 5-6 and 7-8 next year (2015) in the Vancouver area or to offer modules 5-6 and 7-8 online next year?

    2) The anatomy studies required (120 hours)? Do you supply the material or is this included in the later modules?

    Thanks, Jonathan, we’ll see you next week,

    Take care,


    1. Hi Sylvie, lovely to hear from you.

      If you want to be certified then the only option is to do both the online and live classes of Mods 1-4. Then Mods 5-6 where you would be certified. Mods 7-8 are optional. There is a link to an online anatomy and physiology class on the website but any programme totalling 120 hrs would suffice.

      I will be announcing class dates for this coming January in Vancouver. I hope to start a group in January for Modules 1-4 then for the spring for Mods 5-6 and the fall for Mods 7-8.

    Hello Jonathan,

    I am an intern (4th year student ) at CCNM, i did not attend anty Bowen modules class before. Could i register for module 7-8 that will be held this Sept and posted in upcoming courses at CCNM continuing education website and then register for module 1-4 later on in Feb or it does not work this way! also is there is any plan for module 5-6 at CCNM location soon?

    Another question after completion of all these module what kind of certification i will get?

    Thank you

    1. Hi Abdullah, I'm sorry to have been so long to reply. Somehow I lost the question in my inbox but have found it online since. Anyway, the possibility is there to learn in a backwards manner as there consists of a complete review of the modules 1-6 during the class. Additionally, this class is going to be quite small and so we'd get to work one-on-one quite a bit. Also, the online classes would be there for you to review and refresh as needed. If you'd like to discuss further please call me directly.

  3. Dear Linda, we will be announcing a class schedule in Ontario shortly. Probably October and again the following February. I will add your name to the mailing list to keep you up to date and you can unsubscribe at any time.

    Hello, I live in Grande Prairie, Alberta. I was wondering if there are Bowen classes offered here? Or is it possible to train by correspondence.

    There is a lady in town practicing and she is amazing at what she does, she has inspired me to want to be a bowen therapist as well.

    1. Great to hear that inspiring news. You can probably find an Alberta Bowen class via and many students enjoy the online option of Bowen-Online as it provides the best at home learning option and is by far the least cost oveall.
