Nice to meet you, I’m Jan!

I qualified as a physiotherapist in 1981, and worked in the NHS. I got my greatest satisfaction working in the Out Patient department, treating mostly muscular and joint conditions.

After a break to raise my young family, I was looking for a more holistic therapy to practice, and I found it in the Bowen Technique. I was at first amazed, and then delighted with the sheer effectiveness of the treatments.

My credentials

I qualified as a Bowen therapist with the European College of Bowen Studies (now CBS) in 2006, and enjoy developing my skills with regular advanced courses. I’m a member of the Bowen Therapy Professional Association (BTPA), and the independent UK regulator for complementary healthcare practitioners (CNHC), and I adhere to the profession’s standards of training and conduct.

Why I love Bowen Therapy

I love my work, and get a lot of satisfaction from seeing people get back to wellness, and achieve their potential. That could be helping a sportsperson get over an injury and back to their training, a child gain control of their asthma, an elderly person gain more mobility and independence, or a working person on sick leave get back to their job. I feel privileged to be doing something which can make such a big difference in people’s lives.

Why I teach Bowen Therapy

Through my work I have seen the power of Bowen to help people recover from pain and injury, both new and long-standing. I passionately believe Bowen can play an important part in the health and wellbeing of the population as a whole. So I’m delighted to be a tutor with Bowen College UK (BC UK), offering two-day workshops for people to learn how to give a whole body Bowen treatment, to support their friends, family and colleagues. 

Taking Bowen Therapy into the future

Because of its sheer effectiveness and lack of side effects, I look forward to the day when Bowen is a household skill, and more widely prescribed as a first-line treatment in the NHS. I feel everyone deserves to benefit from this very natural treatment.
