Training, qualifications & experience
I qualified in the Bowen Technique in June 2008, after training with the European College of Bowen Studies.

Please refer to the Bowen Studies link on the BTPA website www.bowentherapy.org.uk to read some of the studies on the effectiveness of Bowen Therapy for conditions such as: back pain, repetitive strain injury, knee and ankle pain, asthma, migraine, shoulder and neck pain.
I am also registered with CNHC (Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council); CNHC is the UK regulator for complementary healthcare practitioners. Its key function is to enhance public protection by setting standards for registration.
I keep my qualifications up to date by regularly taking training days to enhance my knowledge of Bowen.
