In 14 days of training with accredited instructors of the Bowen
Therapy Academy of Australia, over a period of at least six
months, you will learn a comprehensive health system that will
enable you to aid the recovery from a large range of internal
and musculo-skeletal conditions. You will learn procedures that
balance the body overall, plus a range of procedures that address
specific areas of the body, and still others to use in cases
where conditions don't respond readily to the basic procedures.
The last two days are a thorough hands-on assessment, by a senior
instructor, of every procedure that was taught in the first
The Bowtech procedures are taught in seven modules, each 16
classroom hours long. The modules must be taken in sequence
because each one reviews and builds on what was taught previously.
These modules are generally taught in two consecutive days each,
over a period of six months or more, with a maximum of two modules
The last seminar, "Module 7," is a thorough assessment
of the material taught in the first six modules. Requirements
for taking Module 7 include satisfactory completion of the written
assessments and case study requirements at Modules 3 through
6, and waiting at least one month after Module 6.
Each country charges a standard fee per seminar. For details,

The content of each module is standard in every country where
BTAA-accredited instructors teach. This means that you can travel
and study with any combination of BTAA-accredited instructors

as all of your classmates, regardless of their previous instructors.
Every module includes:
* Demonstration of each procedure, with detailed explanation
of anatomical landmarks
* Explanation and discussion of the procedures and indications
for their use
* Detailed notes, with photographs and anatomical diagrams
* Extensive supervised hands-on practice, with feedback from
* Ample review of procedures taught in previous modules
Practical and written assessments, with individual feedback,
are given in Modules 3 through 6. You will also be required
to submit written case studies (a total of ten) in those modules;
and you will receive feedback from the instructor on your choice
of procedures, the amount of work done, and other aspects of
your work as indicated in your reports.
Module 7 is a full two-day assessment by a senior instructor,
covering all procedures and aspects taught in the first six

* Two Practitioner Days, taken together or separately:
Part A, all lower body procedures, exercises and protocols
Part B, all upper body procedures, exercises and protocols
* Advanced Seminar
Prerequisites apply, including the completion of Practitioner
Courses at intervals of at least three months over a period
of nine months after completion of Module 7.
* Attendance at Bowtech conferences
Within each two-year period, a maximum of eight continuing education
hours may be earned by attending Bowtech conferences.
Other courses that are approved by Bowtech for continuing education
are listed in the drop-down menu on the Learn Bowtech search
page. Not every course is available in all countries. Contact
your regional office for details.
Additional courses are continually under development to broaden
the range of courses that qualify toward the continuing education
requirement of 32 hours every two years.
