Renata’s first encounter with Bowen therapy had a significant impact on her life, and a few years later, it altered her professional path as well. She is a radiological engineer by profession, with years of experience in this field. She likes to say that she very early on discovered that there is more to people than meets the eye, and that her profession has led her to the realisation that there is also much more to people when observed from within. It was this philosophy that led her to explore the functioning of the human organism and the effects that the mind and emotions have on the body.
After finishing high school, she attained the title Graduate Engineer of Radiology at the Radiology Department of the Faculty of Health Sciences in Ljubljana. In 1985, she gained employment at the University Medical Centre Ljubljana, where she worked in several professional fields (emergency services, interventional radiology, cardiology, neurology, management).
In 2008, she acquired the Bowen therapy certificate – Bowen Therapy Essentials, and founded her company REMEDIO, where she performs therapies and provides educational services.
Renata has been a licensed instructor at the BTE School – Bowen Therapy Essentials, an EFT 3rd level practitioner in accordance with AAMET standards, a TRE Povider (for individuals and groups), an NLP practitioner (INLPTA), an Emmett therapist and Emmtech tutor. Last year, she also obtained an instructor’s license – The Importance of Symmetry and Textbook Procedures. Renata is a full member of the independent UK based international organisation of Bowen therapists, the BTPA – the Bowen Therapy Professional Association.
She compliments her expertise of conventional medical sciences, acquired through her medical education and a 27-year-long career at the University Medical Centre Ljubljana, with her knowledge of complementary medicine. Renata regularly educates and perfects herself in the field of manual and energy therapies with guidance from world-renowned therapists. She also participates in research projects led by the Centre for Clinical Physiology at the Faculty of Medicine in Ljubljana, where she currently enjoys part-time employment.
Renata was President of the Society of Bowen Therapists of Slovenia from 2012 to 2016.
