What is the Equine Bowen Technique?

Equine Bowen was adapted and devised by Beth Darrel after she was trained as a Bowen technique therapist with Julian baker principle and founder of the European collage of Bowen studies. 
For Beth it was a natural transition to work towards applying Bowen therapy to horses. Using many influences she worked closely with a vetenary surgeon "Nigel Dodnam" MRCVS and BHS Instructors to comprehensively and effectively compile this bodywork for equines.
Beth now trains many people in equine Bowen therapy and also provides workshops for the continual training (see links) of qualified therapists. It is a qualification of entry onto Beth's detailed and thorough courses that all Equine Bowen Therapy practitioners (EBT) be human Bowen qualified and hold a diploma in human anatomy and physiology.

This insures the practitioner has a thorough knowledge of the Bowen technique and its effects. All training courses take a minimum of one year to complete and involves
compiling twenty equine case studies.
Training covers a broad spectrum of subjects:


  • Equine Anatomy and Physiology
