• The British Institute of Osteopathy course Fast Track to Better Practice is now available as a 3-part series

    This three-part series is specifically designed for both practicing Osteopaths and Osteopathic students who want to embrace the fuller possibilities of modern clinical practice, using a constitutional approach.

    The course is called Fast Track to Better Practice because it is exactly that. I have spent my entire career reading, distilling and evolving the great historic theories and drawing on 23 years of clinical practice, so you don’t have to start at the beginning.

    I have road tested the method over 23 years, collated illustrated cases so you can see clinical evidence of what you are learning.
