Teaching Bowenwork Around the World
The Bowen Therapy Academy of Australia has been dedicated to the teaching of Bowenwork® since 1987. The pioneering work of the Academy, both in Australia and overseas, has seen the spread of Bowenwork to over 30 countries worldwide.
In 1976, Ossie and Elaine Rentsch began utilizing Mr. Bowen’s methods in their clinic in Hamilton, Victoria. They held their first Bowenwork (also known as Bowtech®) seminar In Perth, Australia in 1986, and founded the Bowen Therapy Academy of Australia (BTAA) the following year. By 1990 Ossie and Elaine Rentsch were teaching full time throughout Australia. Now there are over 90 authorized Bowenwork instructors throughout the world.
To date, BTAA has taught well over 20,000 students worldwide. Many of these students remain active in their practice, and many have been in practice for over 20 years.
The Academy continually works to refine and expand the teaching curriculum to include the latest research and best practices in order to maintain high standards for instructor and practitioner training. In addition, BTAA holds bi-annual, international conferences that feature well-known speakers from the medical community and the community of BTAA instructors and practitioners.
