This workshop teaches Bowen Therapists to assess each patient in order to locate and release the specific muscle tension that is sustaining dysfunction.  It helps the therapist to develop a more holistic appreciation of dysfunction and to attain a tactile recognition of relevant soft tissue ‘pathology’.  It illustrates the significance of the meridians in the application of Bowen Therapy.  Most importantly, it highlights the importance of ‘symmetry’ as a guide to effective Bowen treatment.

Since 2013, the Importance of Symmetry workshop has been presented to more than 1300 therapists in 20 different countries and in every case it has been enthusiastically endorsed by those who participated.  This workshop will enhance your ability to locate and resolve dysfunction at its source and it will dramatically improve your confidence and your clinical outcomes.  It will forever change the way you practice Bowen Therapy.

About the Author: Graham Pennington

Graham Pennington - Bowen Therapy Book Author

For more than two decades, Graham Pennington has been practising Bowen therapy, naturopathy and acupuncture in his busy, multi-practitioner clinic in Warrnambool, Australia.

As a young naturopathic graduate, he was introduced to the Bowen technique when he took over the running of Ossie Rentsch’s clinic in Hamilton in 1989. This unique opportunity provided an intense exposure to the system of therapeutic bodywork that would become such an important component of his professional life.

In addition to his experience in Hamilton, Graham has also received extensive mentoring and invested many hours observing Dr Romney Smeeton DC in his Geelong clinic.

He has spent the last twenty-three years practising, teaching, and developing the Bowen technique. In this book he seeks to share his clinical knowledge and experience with the practising Bowen therapist.

What people are saying about the book and the seminars:

A Textbook of Bowen Technique represents ‘a quiet revolution’ in the study of Bowen Therapy.

                                          Gene Dobkin – Instructor, Author of ‘The Bowen Home Companion’

Graham’s knowledge of Bowen is unquestionable and he presents it in a very concise way with great illustrations and a good indexing system.  I would recommend that every student and qualified practitioner read his view on the Bowen Technique – not only is it informative on many levels but it challenges opinion and allows for discussion.
