On this Two Day Intensive Course you will have time to refresh and update your practical hands on skills and also have time to specifically discuss topics relevant to us as Bowen Therapists.

This is a practitioner workshop but with the added benefit of a fresh perspective!

From 2022 onwards, Jihan will bring you the latest in Fascial research as a pioneering member of the Fascial Net Plastination Project based in Guben, Germany, where she was involved in the creation of the world's fascial-focused human body plastinate FR: EIA This was a project in partnership with Fascia Research Society and Body Worlds. 

Primarily this is a hands-on workshop, revisiting and fine-tuning Bowen moves from your foundation training but then taking your work to different levels and understanding it in new and varied ways.

This workshop is aimed at all qualified therapists - from all Bowen training schools - everyone is welcome and we have something new for everyone.

We have two themes for the workshops we run. Firstly, we can work with therapists who are stepping back into the training room. It is designed to get your head and your hands into Bowen. Whether you have had a break from treating during or after lockdown or perhaps establishing your practice again after a little time out. You will gain confidence and learn something new, leaving the workshop feeling well-prepared and having more confidence to start working with your clients in new ways.

Secondly, this is the first port of call we suggest for newly qualified therapists as a space to re-evaluate the work that you have learnt to date - but also the first opportunity to start going through various ways to work differently with Bowen. To expand and upgrade your Bowen skillset. We take a deep dive into fascia anatomy and a look at the body systems that respond s beautifully to our work.

This is also a great opportunity to connect with other therapists both experienced and perhaps local to you too.

You will receive a CDP certificate and have the chance to look through a selection of the course notes that are used for our comprehensive training to become a ‘Certified Bowen Healthcare Therapist’.

“Great Day with inspiring new ideas, I will be putting into practice tomorrow!”

After some time to orientate ourselves within the complex, introductions and lunch we will then make our way to the lab. There will be a chance to explore tissue (if this is your first time dissecting) and take part in small projects within the week with the aim of giving you the experience of witnessing the continuity of form.


Evenings can be spent relaxing onsite or venturing into Guben and Gubin (Poland) to visit various restaurants that are all walking distance away.

Reset 101 - Gus de la Querra

The latest in Vagus, Lymphatics and Immune system optimisation.

Learn how to create synergy and balance within these systems for optimal health.

Reset 101 Logo.png

The three pillars of Reset 101:

The Vagus Nerve

Playing a crucial role in regulating various bodily functions, its diverse functions make it a key player in maintaining overall homeostasis on both a physiological and mental/emotional level.

Together with the lymphatic system, it plays a major role in controlling our inflammatory and immune responses.

The Lymphatic System

Oedema or swelling is not the only symptom of a troubled lymphatic system.

As a conveyor belt of everything immune-related, a problem in the lymph system will have body-wide repercussions and will present itself with an array of symptoms not necessarily recognised as lymphatic in nature.

The Immune System 

This system is relentless and needs no introduction of importance.

It can seem at times as being the enemy but it's only intention ever is to work for you and not against you. 

Knowing it's function and response, and how to guide it can lead to the possibility of change and healing.

All practical work will be available to you after the workshop on video via THE BODY REWIRED website.

"Seen 2 back patients today. Started at the neck with lymphatic work and did some vagal work, and then moved down to ribs, anterior hip and finally the back. 

Used loads of techniques from the weekend and had some brilliant results. Totally awesome! Inspirational!"


Simply Vagus - Gus de la Querra

The Vagus Nerve - Because the body can’t heal while in stress-mode.


Who is this workshop for? Anyone interested in their own health and wellbeing. The content is both practitioner- and self-help based. So whether you want to help others, or help yourself, this one’s for you!

The Vagus nerve. Our “wandering” nerve. The tenth cranial nerve (CN X).

Traditionally, our Vagus nerve has been seen to only be responsible for our rest, digest, and repair functions. Turns out there’s a bit more to it than that.

For example, overstimulation of this nerve can create serious health issues.
The optimum functioning of this nerve is key to our health – physically and mentally, and longevity.


What you will learn:

  • Anatomy of your vagus nerve.

  • Your vagus and digestion. 

  • Your vagus, inflammation & immune health. 

  • Your vagus and cardiovascular health.

  • Your vagus and social engagement – the Polyvagal theory.

  • How to test and identify problems with vagal tone & function.

Course manual included.

  • Suboccipital release

  • Neck release

  • TMJ/jaw reset

  • Tongue/Hyoid release

  • Hiatus hernia reset

  • Diaphragm release

  • And more…

“I can highly recommend the Vagus workshop; using these new skills and knowledge alongside Bowen and particularly Lymphatic Bowen is having some amazing results for my clients. They also love having easy, take home exercises to do”

Understanding Hormones - Paula Esson

This two-day workshop is designed for hands-on therapists. We will explore how over 80 hormones from 10 glands regulate and create function and behaviour. It is a remarkable silent system working hand-in-hand with the nervous system.

Hormones are the fabric of life, an orchestra of interactions. They will create feelings of extreme happiness or dump you into the depths of despair, playing you like a yo-yo emotionally and physically with testosterone and oestrogen levels.

In this course you will learn about:

  • the 10 major hormonal glands

  • balancing oestrogen and progesterone - managing symptoms for menopause, period pain, post breast cancer, endometriosis and fertility

  • male fertility - function of promotion of testosterone

  • balancing the HPA axis and adrenaline, plus cortisol loads to reduce anxiety, threat and stress

  • influencing the pituitary and pineal glands with targeted cranial work

  • calibrating the thyroid and thymus by balancing the sympathetic nervous system

  • influencing the liver and pancreas and gallbladder.​
