Whole Body Balance Case Study Forms

Here is the case study form that I use. I simply mark the corresponding letter on the diagram. You may modify it to suit your own unique way of recording. 

Or you may create your very own case study form to best suit your style!

As mentioned above you have the freedom to custom design your own case study lay out!

Remember: the more detailed you are with information, before and after pictures and video, the better for you!

Your case studies essentially create your testimonials and reputation as you begin to attract a clientele.



Here are a couple of  WBB samples from fellow ABT Practitioners when they were at Level 1 and Level2

As you will see, some are more detailed than others.

Assignment 4  (for all Students ~ Bowen Practitioners may choose to exempt) 

Write a 250 word essay about the fascinating world of Fascia. Add your thoughts on how Bowen works with this incredible webbing.

Recommended Purchase: Bowen Unravelled by Julian Baker.

As part of this assignment I highly recommend reading and summarizing from Julian Bakers book, Bowen Unravelled. This is, in my opinion, an interesting and informative book about Bowen. Julian dives into the fascinating world of Fascia and for the first time in print we are learning how Fascia and Bowen work together. Julian also shares many of his theories on Bowen, all of which should be considered.

If you choose to purchase and read this book, I caution you to stay true to what you know about Animal Bowen Therapy.  

Remember that we are unique in working with animals.

Our approach, our intuition and our experiences with Bowen differ from those who work with the Human Body.

 

Google it!

YouTube it!

Read a book on it. (Bowen Unravelled)
