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:-
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
