Animal Bowen Care Programme

Animal BowenCare is a gentle, non-invasive body therapy that works via the animal’s autonomic nervous system helping the body to begin to self-regulate. This is true for both humans and animals. Comprised of five modules, this animal course takes you along the canine Bowen treatment journey.

More Info

When an animal, as with humans, has an injury, illness or some sort of trauma, the body begins to develop compensatory patterns of use to avoid further discomfort or pain.  If left unchecked these patterns of use slowly but surely begin to interfere with the well-being and function of the body.  This is where the effective, gentle, body therapy that is Animal BowenCare comes into its own.  It helps the healing process without further aggravation or injury. Our pet canines, that is, dogs respond beautifully to Animal BowenCare.  It works in the same way as Bowen Therapy does with humans.  Very gently, moves are made over muscle and connective tissue at precise points in the body allowing the body to calm the autonomic nervous system and therefore, to allow the body to move into a state of rest and restore.
