Canine Bowen Technique
Carole Justice Gray is the UK Co-coordinator of the European Guild of Canine Bowen Therapists (EGCBT) and authorised teacher of Canine Bowen Technique for EGCBT. She has been working as a Bowen Practitioner since 2009 in Oxfordshire and Northamptonshire as well as travelling far afield working with dogs. In 2014 after working with and shadowing Sally & Ron Askew for two years in UK and Switzerland, Carole began running and teaching the established EGCBT Canine Bowen Technique self-Interest and practitioner course in the UK with fellow Canine Bowen Technique practitioner Eileen Smith.
Carole has grown up with dogs – mainly Dachshunds and Golden Retrievers – and is now firmly in love with Hungarian Vizsla’s. She lived without a dog only when working in London as an advertising producer in the 1990’s. During this time she satisfied her love of animals by developing a keen interest in horses later becoming involved in Equine and Canine behaviour and training. As a result of this Carole was given a somewhat ‘complicated’ Hungarian Vizsla, who, along with her own return from ill health (M.E.), firmly established her obsession with complementary therapies and creating the most positive relationships you can have with dogs.
The European Guild of Canine Bowen Therapists (see www.caninebowentechnique.com) was founded by Sally & Ron Askew who developed the adaption of Bowen for use on dogs in the UK from 2001. Bowen therapists and experienced canine professionals Sally & Ron Askew integrated their findings into their established canine behavioural and rehabilitation work and in 2003 with the collaboration of their vet, designed a professional programme of training with an holistic approach, for people wishing to become properly skilled Canine Bowen Technique therapists. The course has been running in the UK since 2004 and the EGCBT Practitioner course in Canine Bowen Technique is currently the only course in Bowen for dogs recognised by both the Bowen Therapy Professional Association (BTPA) and Bowen Association UK.
