Equine Bowen Therapy - Setting the Standard in Equine Bowen Therapy Training
The European School of Equine Bowen Therapy has set the standard for Equine Bowen training in the UK for over a decade. Our practitioners have been trained to the higest level making them the most respected and professional Equine Bowen Therapists working in the UK and beyond.
Once qualified, our registered Equine Bowen Practitioners are supported with continued professional development opportunities, to ensure they remain at the fore front of this growing area of Bowen Therapy.
After discovering the Bowen Technique in 1995, Beth trained with Julian Baker, director of the European College of Bowen Studies. She quickly found Bowen taking over from Aromatherapy as her main treatment of choice.
She says The Bowen Technique is the most user (and receiver) friendly modality that I have experienced. It can be anything you need it to be; a sports therapy; a functional muscula-skeletal therapy; a hormone/blood pressure balancer; an aid to comfortable respiration; a stress reliever; and energy booster; the possibilities are infinite!
Several years later, Beth started to apply some Bowen moves to her own horses with great results.
In 1998, she studied with an Australian, Michael Nixon-Livy the Neurostructural Integration Technique (N.S.T.) training programme, later going on to qualify as an advanced practitioner.
Following many requests for a professional approach to Equine Bowen training, Beth started planning and designing a training programme for Bowen Therapists wishing to take this versatile healing modality to horses.
Her aim was to produce skilled, knowledgeable therapists who would work along side other professionals within the equestrian industry. It was vitally important to ensure credibility and respect that this excellent therapy so deserves.
The Bowen Technique is a gentle, non-intrusive hands on therapy which stimulates the body's inner ability to heal itself to be activated. This reorganisation of the musculature of the body can bring increased energy levels and pain relief.
As a soft tissue therapy, it 'disturbs' the fascia or connective tissue, there is no pulling or cracking of joints and no insertion of needles. The therapist uses fingers or thumbs in a rolling action over specific muscles, tendons and ligaments, incorporating resting periods to allow the body to absorb the information and respond accordingly.
Standards, support and development.
The Equine Bowen Therapy training course was the first course of its kind to insist upon the entry requisites in place to ensure a professional, credible and respected standard of therapist. All Equine Bowen Therapists are qualified human Bowen Therapists. This is vitally important to ensure that all practitioner have a complete understanding of the Bowen Technique.
Practitioners are required to attend Continuous Professional Development study days and workshops, in order to remain on the EBT professional referral list.
