Canine Bowen Technique - Ron with Gemma

Important Notes

Canine Bowen Technique is not a substitute for proper veterinary care, and should be used in conjunction with orthodox veterinary treatment. It is only available on veterinary referral.
Please contact your therapist for the appropriate referral form.

Canine Bowen Technique therapists do not diagnose (we leave that to the experts in the veterinary profession who have the proper training and qualifications to do so).

Under no circumstances will Canine Bowen Technique therapists prescribe medication or alter any medication already prescribed for the dog.

Canine Bowen Technique
(The Bowen Technique for Dogs)

The Canine Bowen Technique is a ‘light-touch’ therapy offering dogs a gentle,
non-invasive and effective hands-on technique that aims to promote healing, pain-relief and body/energy rebalancing.

It is based on the principles of the Bowen Technique, a successful human therapy named after it’s developer, Tom Bowen (1916-1982). Developed in Australia during the 1950’s, it was brought to the UK in the early 1990’s.

Its adaptation in the UK for use on dogs was started in 2001 by Bowen therapists Sally and Ron Askew, who started on their own dogs, and then, with the cooperation and support of their local vets, integrated their findings into their canine behavioural and rehabilitation work with great success.

In 2003, following persistent prompting, they designed a professional program of training, with an holistic approach, for people wishing to become properly skilled Canine Bowen Technique therapists, and founded the European Guild of Canine Bowen Therapists (EGCBT) to bring this exciting modality both to the UK and to mainland Europe.

The EGCBT Practitioner course in Canine Bowen Technique is currently the only course in Bowen for dogs recognised by the Bowen Therapy Professional Association (BTPA).
