Canine Bowen Technique is an adaptation of the Bowen Technique. It is a gentle, non-invasive, light touch, holistic modality that aims to boost the natural healing capabilities of the body and thus promote healing, pain relief and general body rebalancing.
When applied to animals, the Technique is regarded as a manipulative therapy covered by the Veterinary Surgery (Exemptions) Order 1962 of the 1966 Veterinary Surgeons Act, allowing qualified practitioners to work on the animal on the referral from the dog's Veterinarian.
The European Guild of Canine Bowen Therapists (EGCBT), have been using Bowen on dogs since 2001, with a lot of success. Problems frequently presented at CBT sessions are:-
  • Acute injury - sprains & strains
  • Chronic illness and degenerative disease - improving the dog's quality of life
  • Rescue/Rehomed dogs - relaxation of tenseness from previous trauma
  • Pre and post surgery - reducing recovery times



Gwen working on Celyn who has chronic Kidney failure. Regular sessions help manage the pain enabling Celyn to move more freely.

Canine Bowen Technique is used as a complementary therapy i.e. in conjunction with, not as an alternative to, proper veterinary care, and insist that owners have their dog thoroughly checked over beforehand by their vet, and get their vet's written approval prior to commencing a Bowen session. Under no circumstances do I prescribe or alter any medication.
