Why learn Bowen Therapy?

Most people who learn Bowen Therapy decide to do so because of their own personal experience with Bowen. Over the years, we’ve heard thousands of incredible Bowen stories that have led to improved health and happiness, and in the case of so many of our students, a brand new career as a Bowen Therapist. 

So, why choose to learn Bowen Therapy? What kinds of benefits can a career in Bowen Therapy offer? 

Like us, you’re probably passionate about helping others to be the best they can be. You’re dedicated to health and fascinated by how the body can heal. You might already work in the health industry – whether you’re a nurse or a naturopath, a midwife or a massage therapist, Bowen Therapy can make a wonderful adjunct to your existing practice. We also have doctors, physiotherapists, and an anaesthetist in our student body. Or, if you’re brand new to natural therapies, Bowen Therapy is a great modality to kickstart your career in this growing industry. 

Here are some of the reasons people learn Bowen Therapy:

There’s no age limit! We’ve seen grandparents establish successful Bowen practices. It’s never too late to learn – one man started his career as a Bowen Therapist in his 70s, working well into his 80s and 90s. Bowen Therapy is very gentle on practitioners and clients. It’s far less taxing on your body than other more physically demanding forms of bodywork, such as massage, allowing you to work for as long as you’d like to.

Bowen Therapy is a suitable modality for people of all ages, from babies to the elderly, and everyone in between. Pregnant Mums, athletes, and people with all kinds of illnesses or health issues can benefit from Bowen. Similarly, there are few contraindications, meaning Bowen Therapy is suitable for people in all states of health, whether they have injuries, musculoskeletal issues, stress/anxiety, cancer, chronic health complaints, gut issues, or just about any complaint you can think of.

You can work on multiple clients at the same time = more money per hour! There are essential pauses between ‘moves’ in Bowen Therapy where the practitioner leaves the room to allow the body to integrate. These pauses make it possible to work on more than one client at a time to maximise your earning potential. 

You can work from home and set your own hours. With minimal overheads, working from your home is a popular choice for many Bowen Therapists. Or, you can rent space in an allied health clinic and work alongside other practitioners. The choice is yours!
