TBT is Ross Emmett’s understanding of Tom Bowen’s basic technique as it was originally taught during the early Australian workshops in 1987/8. Ross has been in clinical practise for over 20 years using this technique and spent 10 years as a Senior Instructor of Bowen Therapy. He has been encouraged and supported in developing this course by Tom Bowen’s family and by the generous sharing of notes, advice and recollections by several of Tom’s later students, most notably Romney Smeeton, who was close to Tom until his death. Romney says of Ross:
“…he has an understanding and feeling for Tom Bowen’s work that I believe is far greater than anyone I have met, including those of us who actually watched Tom work.”
The course is taught over 4 days in two parts, each of two days in duration. The course fee is €295 for each two day part.
“As a Bowen therapist I have for some time felt that the increasing evolution of the technique, in many ways understandable and commendable, has tended to obscure the effectiveness of the work Tom Bowen did at the time. If Tom did indeed treat up to 13,000 people a year then his techniques must have had some merit for such a number to seek his help. Ross Emmett’s return to the original moves used by Tom, informed as they are by his deep understanding from his own work, feels intuitively correct. Tom Bowen’s Therapy does make me feel as if I am returning to the source and connecting with the man himself.” Bob Manning, Bowen and EMMETT therapist.
“I knew from seeing the manual that this course was going to be good, but it really blew me away! It has given me a much deeper understanding of work I have been doing for several years now and has allowed me to change the parts which didn’t work as well as they might for my clients. Best of all is seeing EMMETT-type results from doing Bowen Therapy!
