What you will learn

Fundamentals [fascia & Bowen]

We first ask the question: What are we touching?

Well, skin, muscles and fascia. Right and...wrong.  Knowing the fabric we work with, we stimulate and manipulate is essential. Bowen Therapy will makes so much more sense after.

In fundamentals module, we learn about fascia in relation to the Bowen technique. Instead of pouring over hundreds of fascia books, I have selected the key areas you need to know as a Bowen practitioner/student and conclude with the clinical relevance for you and your work. Essential knowledge. 

Enrol now

Back to the basics. Questions we delve into about fascia.

This course really sets the stage for the following modules and our fundamental knowledge about what and how we are influencing health via the connective tissue system. Here, we start from the beginning as we move through the layers and other important substances.

  • What are the fascial layers we touch?

  • What is included as fascial tissue (according to current research)

  • Do we know what the septa is? Why should we?

  • What is HA and why is it important?

  • What happens with stress and fascia?

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

Understanding Bowen starts with familiarising yourself with the fascial system.

In this course, we begin with fascia 101 progressing to what we need to know in relation to Bowen Therapy - that is, expanding our knowledge about fascia is intimately linked in with our understanding of the biomechanics of Bowen. This mini-course (that is part of the full 6-module course) has been deliberately designed with short lessons. 

Each topic and sub-topic progresses into the nature of fascia, its innervation, and integrating this knowledge (plus new insights!) into the Bowen technique. Knowing about the fabric you are manipulating is essential, you would agree! 

One of the more popular mini-courses that ties in well with module 2 (mini-course 'Mechanoreceptors"). 

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

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 connective tissue system (or, fascia), yet a totally new learning experience to learn about fascia in relation to the Bowen Technique! Similarly, understanding how Bowen is believed to work, through fascia knowledge.

  • Transfer into practice

    Be an effective clinician. Your depth of knowledge and understanding will be transferred into your clinical practice. When you know what is occurring behind or beneath your hands, 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.
