Certification Program

The Bowenwork certification program offers a rich learning experience where students are mentored every step of the way by experienced and caring instructors.

Our modular training system includes lecture and demonstration, hands-on practice with real-time feedback, meaningful self-study assignments and plenty of review.

Professional Bowenwork Practitioners complete 340 hours of training in order to become certified by the American Bowen Academy. This training includes:

  • 212 hours in the theory and practice of Bowenwork, (including classroom training, the preparation of 10 case studies, and a minimum of 50 hours of logged hands-on practice)
  • a minimum of 100 (120 hours preferred) hours of anatomy and physiology
  • 24 hours of business and ethics
  • 4 hours CPR certification

In order to complete certification training, students are required to pass a rigorous 16 hour practical assessment of the hands-on work and a written test.

Bowenwork students, practitioners and instructors are required to abide by a strict code of professional ethics.

In order to maintain certification, practitioners are required to complete 32 hours of continuing education every two years, 16 of which must review the hands-on work.
