Professional training criteria for becoming a Bowen Therapist
There are two main career paths for becoming a Bowen Therapist. You can consider either a Diploma of Bowen Therapy or a Certificate IV (or equivalent) in Bowen Therapy.
In addition to the initial training course, the industry also requires annual training to maintain your qualifications (continuing professional education) and to stay well informed of updates in techniques and service delivery models. The BTFA can support you with advice during your studies and can also help you once you graduate, as you establish a practice and maintain your qualifications.

A career in Bowen therapy can be very rewarding. There are no age and few physical limitations, as the therapy is gentle on the therapist as well as clients.
The majority of therapists operate from home-based practices with minimal overhead costs, while others work within clinics alongside allied health professionals.
