The Bowen Therapy Professional Association (BTPA) was set up for the purposes of promoting Bowen Therapy (for use on humans) and for maintaining a register of accredited Bowen therapists.
As of January 2019, the BTPA committee will only be assessing human Bowen Therapy courses (Core Bowen and CPD).
However, many Bowen Technique practitioners have also applied their Bowen training for the use of Bowen Therapy on animals and some therapists have done additional training in Canine and/or Equine Bowen training.
A Full Member of the BTPA may request to list details of their Canine and/or Equine Bowen therapy clinics on the register, but you should verify that any Bowen therapist working on an animal is suitably qualified.
You may wish to check that the Animal Bowen therapist you have found:
- has received additional training in Canine Bowen or Equine Bowen, e.g. from the European Guild of Canine Bowen Therapists or The European School of Equine Bowen Therapy.
- has the relevant insurance to work with animals.
- has experience working with vets and animals and has a good track record of results.
- is committed to ongoing training in their chosen field.
BTPA is unable to make a recommendation for a particular Animal Bowen therapist and an individual's details on the BTPA register (Canine/Equine) are just there to assist you to find an Animal Bowen therapist. You should verify with the individual what training or experience they have. Find out more about Canine Bowen Training or Equine Bowen Training using the Bing Search Engine.
All Bowen therapists shown on the 'Find A Therapist' register are fully qualified 'human Bowen' practitioners and meet all the BTPA requirements for Full Members.
