The C.B.S. training course format provides students with in-depth tuition, hands-on supervision and ample time and opportunity for detailed study of the Bowen Technique. Our courses are all highly practical and very ‘hands-on’.
Class sizes are deliberately kept small to ensure you receive a high level of teacher supervision whilst you practise the moves with your fellow students. Our policy is to support you at all times. Between courses, teachers and office staff are available for help and advice.
The course is spread over a minimum period of nine months, although you can take longer if you wish. There are five modules, all of which must be completed. We encourage you to complete the course at a pace that suits you to ensure you gain maximum skills and confidence. Each module can be taken with any teacher in any venue that suits you. While the entire course of study could be completed in a MINIMUM of nine months, this is dependent upon availability of dates and venues.
Although there is no entry-level requirement for attending the course, a good grounding in anatomy would be useful. The course is taught referring to muscles and their Latin names. If you would like to do some optional pre-course reading, we can recommend any of the book titles from the ‘Trail Guide to the Body’ series by Andrew Biel.
If you prefer to work from a PC or Mac there is superb 3D anatomy software. For a free trial go to www.primalpictures.com
This software is easy to use and brings the body to life. For specific Bowen reading we suggest The Bowen Technique book and/or Bowen Unravelled, both by Julian Baker.
Module 1 - The Bowen Technique - Available in the UK and Europe
Module One in the Bowen Technique will give you a solid grounding in the theory and practice of the technique. It gives you clear and detailed instruction, visual demonstration, anecdotal information and, most importantly, plenty of supervised hands-on experience. Your course manuals are superb; they are detailed, colour-illustrated and user-friendly and designed to be used for independent practice.
Module 2 - The Bowen Technique - Available in the UK and Europe
Module Two aims to ensure that your knowledge of the basic moves is solid. By this stage, you will have gained some experience through the practice of the technique and Module Two will build on and refine this. At this point in the course, you will be in the process of compiling the case histories, so assistance and discussion will also focus on this.
Module 3 - The Bowen Technique - Available in the UK and Europe
There is a minimum interval of four months between Module One and Module Three. The submission of your 10 client case histories, four weeks before commencing this level, is a course requirement for attending Module Three. These receive a written evaluation, providing guidance and suggestions for improvement, where required.
Module 4 - The Bowen Technique - Available in the UK and Europe
Module Four revises the Bowen moves covered in Module Three and aims to consolidate all the moves you have learnt so far. You will have the opportunity to discuss your case histories and ensure that any questions you have are fully answered.
Module 5 - The Bowen Technique - Available in the UK and Europe
This level includes the Assessment & Examination.
The submission of 10 more client case histories (30 treatments) is a pre-course requirement. These receive a written evaluation and form part of the final assessment. Module Five reviews and practises all work covered. Students often comment that this is the module where everything seems to fall into place.
Module 5 costs £500.00 (£150.00 deposit then a balance payment of £350.00 one month prior to the first day of the course)
3 Day Course Including Assessment & Examination: £416.66 + VAT (Total £500.00)
