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.

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).
