Would you love to learn about the electric properties of connective tissue in relation to Bowen?

This course is the one! A 27 lesson course that will enrich your knowledge.

In this video-based mini-course, I open the area of study of the electric properties of connective tissue, and processes that occur, in order to better understand what we may be influencing with the Bowen Technique in terms of electric mechanisms! We study collagen and other piezoelectric phenomena!

27 lessons include video, text, quizzes and pdfs. There's also the introduction/welcome module and a closing message from Jenny.
SOUNDS GOOD! ENROL ME.

What you will learn

The Electric Network & Bowen

What is the piezoelectric phenomena and streaming potentials?

And how do electric field & mechanical stress (notably Bowen Therapy) influence tissue?

In this module we view the body as electric rather than 'just' mechanistic, and unravel the electro-mechanical processes in the fascial system and how therapeutic intervention may play a role. Adding further depth to what tissue load can and does do is integral to adding richness in understanding of our soft tissue work with Bowen.

The fascial system is conductive. Which opens up a few questions we delve into.

In this course, we explore the electricomechanical processes in the connective tissue matrix and how our Bowen manipulations may contribute to this phenomena.

  • What does fascia's conductivity got to do with (Bowen) manual therapy?

  • What's collagen got to do with electric potential?

  • Why would the Bowen manoeuvre maximise electric potential?

  • What is tissue remodelling and turnover?

  • Why is intermittent touch effective; what's it got to do with matrix turnover?

  • Finally: Do we want to add depth and meaning to our work

Understanding Bowen involves studying the bioelectric nature of the fascial system...

In this course (one of my favourite I have to say!) we unite our understanding of the organism as electric in nature, with scientific principles and explanations of fascia as being conductive --> this sets us on a windy path of streaming potentials, piezoelectricity, collagen, matrix turnover and other fun topics that cumulatively shine the light on our understanding of our soft tissue work with Bowen.

Benefits

What you will gain doing this course

  • Up-knowledge

    Being a true excellent soft tissue clinician requires more than manual skills - it requires knowledge beyond the actual technique itself. Knowing what you do and why becomes the foundation of your work!

  • Understand

    It's one thing to read about the conductivity of the fascia matrix, yet a totally new learning experience to understand the bioelectric nature & effects from touch in relation to the Bowen Technique! processes.

  • Transfer into practice

    Your depth of knowledge and understanding will be transferred into your clinical practice. When you learn what could be occurring beneath your hands, electromechanically, this wisdom goes far beyond your current work–rather, it is now applied to any new therapeutic skill.

Ready? Go for it.

Your investment into your education!

Frequently asked questions

Mini-courses

  • How is the course delivered?

    Courses are delivered using a variety of media: video (99%) accompanied by graphics and illustrations, some text/pdf lessons, and quizzes. Once you purchase, you have immediate access to the course.

  • I'm not a Bowen Therapist nor health practitioner. Can I still do this course?

    Yes, of course you can! The courses are primarily aimed at the Bowen Therapist, however they are open to everyone, particularly to other manual therapists and those with interest in the Bowen technique.

  • Does this course qualify towards CPD and CPE points?

    Yes. This course–as with all non hands-on training for BTPA–falls under: 'Other Courses' section' (UK).
    CPE for BTFA (AUST) is pending.

  • Is the course theoretical only, or also practical?

    This online course is completely theoretical. All video lessons are accompanied by graphics, illustrations, diagrams, whilst the presenter is speaking. The best and closest you'll get to face-to-face!

  • Will this course be available in other languages?

    Yes. It will be available in Spanish, Portuguese and possibly Greek at a later date. (These are the languages Jenny also speaks)

  • Is this mini-course part of the 6-module (6-week) full course?

    Yes, correct. Note that 5 of the 6 modules (of full course) are available to be purchased separately, as 'mini-courses'. Best value is to enrol in the 6-module course. However, opting for individual mini-courses is a great option too if you have specific topic interest.

  • Is the course refundable?

    Due to the digital nature of this course, and the fact that digital content can't be returned, this course is non-refundable. Please read the outline description of each module so you understand what the course is about and what you are buying. Please email me with any questions and I will always give you an honest answer so you can make the best decision for you.

Jenny Petridis

International multilingual Bowen Therapist and educator, therapeutic yoga practitioner and creative meditation facilitator, and creator of The Biology of Bowen. I am a professionally trained bodyworker and educator, specialising in the remarkable Bowen technique through the last 14 years. I began my career in the manual therapy industry a little before that (Dip. Remedial Massage), eventually discovering the Bowen Technique. Fast forward to now - after countless enquiries from people all over the world, I finally have put pen to paper to launch this course for Bowen therapists, Bowen students or bodyworkers with an interest in Bowen.
