A prior knowledge of basic Anatomy and Physiology (A&P) is expected from Bowen Therapy students (prior to training) who intend to work professionally in this field. Students may already have a relevant qualification but if not, there are basic refresher courses available (such as the FHT accepted course below) which can be taken online.
A more thorough knowledge of Anatomy, Physiology and Pathology (AP&P) is expected from those therapists wishing to become a Full Member of the BTPA or to register with the Complementary & Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC). This could be an ITEC or VTCT Level 3 diploma in AP&P (or equivalent diploma) which requires an exam to be passed.
BTPA recognises diploma qualifications in AP&P from the following organisations:
There are many courses that would provide the necessary A&P experience. Correspondence courses that involve a written exam at the end are also considered acceptable. If you have any queries or need help finding a course near you, please get in touch with the Membership Office - firstname.lastname@example.org.
