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!

FROM VETERINARY EMRTâ¢ PARTICIPANT AND LECTURER
I am indebted to Ali Goward for introducing me to EMRTâ¢. 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 EMRTâ¢.
