BTPA Coronavirus / COVID-19 information

Reopening of Bowen Therapy clinics

The Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC) has provided advice to those therapists on its register and BTPA has adopted a similar policy for its members.

The CNHC is the holder of an Accredited Register by the Professional Standards Authority for Health and Social Care, an independent body, accountable to the UK Parliament.


Close contact services including spas, sports and massage therapy, and well being and holistic locations can open in England from Monday 13 July, in Scotland from Wednesday 22 July, and in Wales from Monday 27 July.

From 6 July 2020, 'close contact businesses' in Northern Ireland were permitted to reopen (as confirmed by the CNHC). Bowen Therapy clinics in this region could open provided that insurance is in place and appropriate guidelines are followed.

The FHT believes that those living in the Crown dependencies of Jersey, Guernsey and the Isle of Man can already return to full practice.


On 11 May the UK Government published its COVID-19 recovery strategy for England, called "Our plan to rebuild". The document sets out a three-stage roadmap to lifting restrictions.
