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.
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
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.
Join me. Start here to be an excellent knowledgeable Bowen Therapist.
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.
