New Practical Course for 2024

A new Practical course will now be taking place over 6 Sundays in Reading Berkshire UK which will complement the online underpinning theory and knowledge covered in films 1 – 4. Current confirmed dates of the Practical Course will be: January 14th, February 4th, 25th February, March 24th, April 21st  and May 19th 2024

The Practical Course is based around the General Osteopathic Treatment approach that has been updated to work in a modern clinical setting. Howard’s 27 years of Osteopathic practice identified that the Osteopathic approach needed to take account of the modern cohorts of patients. This Practical Course is only available to current RQ Osteopathic students and qualified registered Osteopaths and it will be assumed that you have an understanding of Anatomy and Physiology.

A key feature of this course is to convert what would be understood as ‘medical A and P’ and transform this into an Osteopathic understanding of how the body works. This will open up a world of clinical reasoning that will transform your practice.

Original Osteopathic texts on principles and practice do not take account of the modern lifestyle and the palliative approaches that modern patients present with –  two important reasons that demanded an update of how a modern Osteopath may approach modern clinical practice. This advanced Constitutional Osteopathic Course will reflect the application of practical work that will make total sense in a modern clinical setting that is firmly based on Osteopathic Principles – evolved.

This Practical Course is an extension of the original British Institute of Osteopathy Practical Course that ran in Reading for 15 years and has successfully trained over 60 Osteopaths to transform their daily practices into thriving clinics. Now instead of 10 Sundays we are able to offer a 6 Sunday super course than enables you to complete the online underpinning knowledge and theory course in advance of the 6 masterclasses of applied Osteopathic technique. This means the Practical Course can really focus on making your General Osteopathic work the best it can be. We will also cover patient management in the application of the routine involving a comprehensive understanding of treatment reactions and pathways to health using this powerful constitutional approach. The course will show you how to open up a case, develop a treatment rational and most importantly support the patient to a better level of health.

We believe that no other course offers the depth of applied knowledge that this course offers because it is based on clinical evidence of results taken from Howard’s own practice, to show you the logic, application and results from this approach. Every approach and principle can be demonstrated from a real case history base and we are really excited to be up and running this transformative course once again, but in a more accessible way.

The Practical Course offers up to 90 hours of CPD, all in one place, 45+ learning by oneself and up to 45 hours learning with others if you enrol before November 19th 2023 and take advantage of the BIO member’s day focusing on ‘Managing the cleaning and healing crisis’. This will be a gratis place for all new BIO Practical Course delegates confirmed to be enrolled for the Practical Course 2024 Starting January in Reading Berkshire UK. So make sure you enrol before19th of November 2023 to not miss out on an additional 6 hours CPD ‘learning with others’.

The course is held at a venue that is an easy 30 min taxi ride from Heathrow airport and many Osteopathic delegates have successfully travelled in and out for the day during the time we previously ran the course, with no issues.

For more details please email for the detailed course document outlining the learning programme to put your osteopathic theory into practice.

If you book before November 19th 2023 you get a free place on the BIO Members Day – a detailed look at managing the cleaning and healing crisis in the patient.

Howard will send you a gratis link for your place on the BIO Members Day on confirmation of your enrolment on the Practical Course 2024. This will boost your “learning with others” up to 45 hours CPD.
