We regularly organize courses or workshops on the Bowen Technique, an complementary therapy related to Fascia Release, every month or 2 months, in Portugal and in Portuguese speaking countries. More often than not, these workshops are taught in English, and rely on live translation.
On average, a certain number of sessions are held in sequence and last for 4 days.
Before each course module or workshop, the full manual, in both English and Portuguese, is made available to you. This is necessary since many of the terms are related to anatomy. It is not essential to have previous experience with anatomy, since the vocabulary is easy to learn and comes in bite-sized chunks.
The vocabulary related to the therapy itself is quite limited and easy to memorize.
The type of translation we seek is 'loose': it's not about the exact interpretation of the teacher's words, but more about conveying the meaning to enhance understanding by the participating students.
