Welcome to the official NL information site for Bowtech Training in the Original Bowen Technique

Only Bowtech Accredited Instructors can bring you the seven modules of Basic Training, Specialised Bowen Procedures 1 (Advanced) and Specialised Bowen Procedures 2 (Masters) courses all of which we received directly from Mr. Bowen who asked us exclusively to document and chart his amazing techniques. 

Our Bowtech therapists form part of an international network of Academy-registered practitioners influencing health care in over 30 countries around the world. Only Bowtech gives access to the full range of procedures documented directly from founder Tom Bowen (1916 – 1982), who developed this unique therapy in his clinic in Victoria, Australia.

Since then, his work has been continued by Ossie and Elaine Rentsch (pictured below) ensuring more and more people can benefit from this gentle yet dynamic therapy which has been shown to have a profound effect on the body.


Bowtech is the longest established training course for Bowen in the UK and Europe

WHAT IS BOWEN?

The Bowen technique is a dynamic system of muscle and connective tissue therapy. It utilises small but measured inputs to the body stimulating to heal itself, often profoundly.

Ossie & Elaine Rentsch

Bowen Academy of Australia

Don’t miss the opportunity to learn this extraordinary method. 

Bowtech has extensive support throughout the world with over 120 accredited teachers.  Only Bowtech gives access to the full range of procedures documented by Oswald Rentsch directly from Tom Bowen himself.

Module 8 is to me the most important Module in your training as it reviews all the Basic moves plus a whole lot more. It gives you a better understanding of Bowen and as the Basics are what you do do, day in, day out then it´s important to carry these moves out to the best of your ability.

Your Instructor , Jacqui Hoitingh , Bowtech Instructor Netherlands


I started out on a Bowen course in Glasgow in 1998, never having had a treatment nor did I know much about it. For some reason I was drawn to it and I followed my intuition. Thank goodness I listened! My life has changed so much since then. I am a great believer in following your heart and Bowen has opened up a different life and work which I love doing. I qualified as an Instructor in 2005 and I just love teaching, my aim is to get the best Practitioners out there, sharing this magnificent Therapy with as many people as possible. My newest passion is teaching Intuition & Revision Workshops- the reviews speak for themselves! By combining Bowen as you tune into your Intuition just makes the treatment so much more powerful! I am always enthusiastic about teaching and seeing someone have a light bulb moment, “Oh now I understand” makes it all so much more enjoyable. I am married to Robin, also a Bowen Practitioner and my lovely twins Kai & Jay. I love travelling and just as well as I now live in Holland but still do courses in the UK. I run Basic courses in Scotland & Post Graduate course plus Workshops all over the UK as well as in Holland.

I am passionate to keep the standard of Bowen high so more people hear about the wonderful benefits.
