Bowtech for Animals established 1990

Many people in and around Geelong, Victoria, Australia, tell stories of how Tom Bowen saved the life (or racing career) of their dogs and horses. This work continues around the globe through EMRT and CCmrt Animal Bowtech developed in 1990 by Australian Alison Goward who is fulfilling a life-long passion to help the Horse. One of our EMRT practitioners in Australia is still working in the same Trotting stables Tom Bowen worked in ...50 years on!

I hope you enjoy the page and seeing a little of the work we are doing with animals around the world

With love always

I am indebted to Ali Goward for introducing me to EMRT™. It is delightful to know that my patients will benefit so much more as a result of her work. The consequences of Ali's work are potentially experienced worldwide and revolutionary for the horse and their people. I urge all serious horse Veterinarians to learn and experience the power of EMRT™.

FROM THE PRESIDENT OF THE AHVA TO THE BHVMA
The EMRT™ seminar Proceeded well for the AAHV[Australian Association of Holistic Veterinarians]…..it's a modality I can recommend to you all … Australia's own Bowen Therapy for Horses , it can be used in all diseases, is harmless and very useful for degenerative Myopathy – ……..EMRT™ is a Muscle release technique which allows the body to realign itself … often areas that have not been directly treated respond to it and it can be used as a body therapy in association with routine western medicine for a large range of diseases
