Certificate IV in Bowen Therapy 10533NAT
Have you been thinking about a career change? Maybe you've been having Bowen for a while and have thought about sharing its benefits? Michael Alcott is a registered Bowen Therapy instructor with Bowen Training Australia and The Bowen Therapy Academy of Australia. You can start on the road to becoming a therapist with the Certificate IV in Bowen Therapy 10533NAT, which is a Nationally Recognised Training programme through Bowen Training Australia RTO# 41134. You may choose to progress to the Diploma of Specialised Bowen Therapy 10534NAT on successful completion of the Certificate IV.
The Certificate IV programme consists of seven (7) hands-on modules (each two days) where you learn the practical application of Bowen Therapy. These are the parts you can do with me. There are also distance modules relating to the theory around anatomy, physiology, health and safety and other essential aspects of good practice. You'll also need to attain your first aid certificate along the way. The Certificate IV can be completed part-time in a minimum of one year and up to 18 months. This allows time to complete log-book hours and case studies.

An Introduction to Bowen Therapy
Are you intrigued by Bowen but not sure about committing to a full course just yet? Would you like to learn a few moves to help at home with your family? Well, this 4-hour introductory course may be what you've been waiting for. Come along and learn some simple moves for the lower back, upper back, neck and knee and get a feel for if a career in Bowen may be up your alley.
The next introductory day will be held at the clinic from 10am to 2pm on Saturday the 1st of December. You'll get notes to take home to help remind you of what you have learnt and some new skills to apply when someone at home has a bit of an ache and can't get to their regular therapist for a while for just $125. No need to bring anything bar yourself. We will be working through light clothing (anything too heavy makes it hard to learn), so no worries about being self-conscious either. Please make sure your nails are trimmed reasonably short though so there are no ouchies! Morning tea will be provided.
Please book here.
