Introduction to Equine Bowen Therapy and Beth Darrall

  • Print

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.

With over 40 years experience, riding and handling horses and a deep passion for these four-legged animals, Beth set about constructing a training course that would offer a holistic approach to professional practitioner skills and horse management.

With the assistance and support of Nigel Dodman, veterinary surgeon and Bowen Therapist and Heather McLain, BHSI, a training course was put together and the first Equine Bowen Therapy courses were held in Gloucestershire in the summer of 2000.

The leading and most established professional training school for Equine Bowen Therapy providing a holistic approach to horse care and management.

  • A superb, industry leading training programme
  • Maximum number of students per class - 12
  • Flexible modular structure
  • Payment in installments
  • Up to 8 special guest speakers, all experts in their field. These include a detailed lower leg dissection and study of functional anatomy of the equine limb.
  • Opportunity for CPD and Registration Scheme, subject to qualification

Continued demand for quality teaching is such that courses are now in their 8th successive year.

Demand for professional training has now expanded to New Zealand, where Cath Garden is the co-ordinator. Contact Cath for details.

Beth lists her hobbies as horses, horses and horses! When time allows, Beth likes to compete at riding club competitions. In discovering Natural Horsemanship, Beth has learnt the art of communication with horses.

Today, Beth runs a very busy practice working from home and travelling to stable yards to treat horses. She feels privileged to be able to mix business with pleasure!

 

Please support the Hope For Horses Campaign. Thank you.     

Many of my Equine Bowen Therapy students and practitioners will already know my farrier, Mark Johnson. Please look at the campaign he's calling Hope For Horses to rase awareness of the problem of horses being dumped on waste land and literally being left to die with no food, clean water or safe place to rest. See www.hopeforhorses.co.uk Ask for a petition pack to collect signatures to put pressure on the government to enforce the Animal Welfare Act 2006. Don't think that the police or RSPCA will help, Mark has found that they really don't care, which is why he has taken on this massive mission to raise awareness and I applaud him for his deep compassion and ability to stand up for the horses.
