In February 2010, the Bowen Technique achieved recognition by the Complementary & Natural
Healthcare Council (CNHC). All Bowen Association Full members are trained to the highest
standards and are eligible to apply to register with the CNHC.
CNHC was set up by the Department of Health, and is the only voluntary regulatory body for
complementary healthcare to have official Government backing. As well as providing
assurances of high standards to the public, its decision represents a major step forward
in the recognition of Bowen, and other selected therapies, as acceptable complements to
conventional medical treatment.
