Canine Bowen Technique

(the Bowen Technique for Dogs)

Canine Bowen Technique (CBT) is a form of soft-tissue bodywork involving ‘light-touch’ moves of fingers or thumbs over muscle, ligament, tendon and/or fascia at specific points of the dog’s body. The work is very subtle and involves no hard or prolonged pressure. It offers dogs a gentle, non-invasive, hands-on technique that aims to promote healing, pain-relief and body/energy rebalancing.
The EGCBT Practitioner course in Canine Bowen Technique is currently the only UK-developed course in Bowen for dogs approved for continuous professional development training by the Bowen Therapy Professional Association (BTPA) and the Bowen Association UK (BAUK) - the two leading associations of professional Bowen practitioners in the UK.

Important Notes

•  Canine Bowen Technique is not a substitute for proper veterinary care, and should be used in conjunction with orthodox veterinary treatment. It is only available on veterinary referral. Please contact your practitioner for the appropriate referral form.

•  EGCBT practitioners do not diagnose (we leave that to the experts in the veterinary profession who have the proper training and qualifications to do so).

•  Under no circumstances will EGCBT practitioners prescribe medication or alter any medication already prescribed for the dog.

Sally and Ron Askew, designers and teachers of the Canine Bowen Technique Practitioner training course and founders of EGCBT, decided to retire at the end of 2017. As a consequence, it was felt that it was time to restructure EGCBT and to create separate, but linked, organisations for the different countries where they had taught their course.
The creation of these new organisations, with a new name - CBTA (Canine Bowen Technique Association) - is now underway and new websites will replace this (EGCBT) website in due course.

The Contacts page of this website will be kept up-to-date with details of these new organisations as they come on-line. Please contact them if you have general queries concerning
Canine Bowen Technique, or queries about training courses, or if you need help to find a local practitioner.
