“Studying the Certificate IV in Bowen Therapy in 2019 has opened the doors to many opportunities for me. It was a well-paced course with an experienced instructor. Learning the Bowen Technique in a small group meant that we were well-supported. I was so impressed and excited about the future that I have furthered my study and completed the Diploma of Specialised Bowen Therapy. I can highly recommend this training and understand now what it means to “trust the process!"”Rhonda Eather – Roving Bowen TherapyCert IV & Diploma graduate
