Fast Track to Better Practice
This three-part course 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.
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.
