Functional Assessment – Julian Baker

Location: Hotel Campanile, 55 Ordsall Ln, Regent Rd, Salford, Manchester M5 4RS

Workshop Dates: 10 – 11 March 2020

Price: £245

Functional Assessment with Julian Baker. Where do we start when we meet a client for the first time? What are the important areas that we need to consider and how to we go about assessing what they need as against what they think they need?

Assessment is not always about body reading or finding imbalances, although these are useful tools; it’s more about finding a place that both you and the client can agree on and from which you can measure and look for change. What is function, normal or otherwise? What are the patterns that keep coming back for clients and how can you spot them? In this workshop we will show you ways to dig a bit deeper and get information that most clients won’t bring you, speeding up changes and results

Shoulder & Pelvic Workshop – Julian Baker

Location: The Blackbourne Community Centre, Blackbourne Road, Elmswell, IP30 9GY, Suffolk

Workshop Dates: 2 – 3 June 2020

Price: £245

Shoulder & Pelvic. The Shoulder and Pelvic workshop is designed to really hone our skills in these two important areas of the body.

The Shoulder procedure is one of the more tricky procedures in the Bowen repertoire. Although simple, there is a degree of timing and accuracy which can be tricky to master and easy to miss.

We will spend a day looking at the shoulder, covering assessment techniques, mobilisation and common injuries. We will get the shoulder procedure spot on and then add on some new approaches and techniques which will help hugely when addressing all kinds of shoulder presentations.

On day two we will move to the pelvis. It’s always surprising how many people have just started to drift from the location which will give the greatest results. The pelvic moves need a high degree of accuracy and we will look not just at the move, but at the reasons we make the move, and the anatomy of the area.

Again, additional moves will be taught. Shoulder and pelvic presentations represent some of the most common issues that we see as Bowen therapists. It’s vital that we keep our skills topped up and ensure that we are in the right place doing the right thing.

Lower Limb – Julian Baker

Location: Glasgow

Workshop Dates: 4 – 5 November 2020

Price: £245

Lower limb.

Your legs are made up of bones, blood vessels, muscles and fascia. They are important for motion and standing. Playing sports, running, falling, or having an accident can damage your legs. Common leg injuries include sprains and strains, joint dislocations and fractures.
These injuries can affect the entire leg, or just the foot, ankle, knee or hip. Certain diseases also lead to leg problems. Osteoarthritis, common in older people, can cause pain and limited motion.
As well as looking at the anatomy and fascia of the existing Bowen procedures, Julian will demonstrate several more new ones designed to incorporate the integral approach and explain how and why each move and procedure does what it does.

For any enquiries, or to book a place on this workshop, please contact Jane at or call on 01225 941077.
