What graduates say

Whilst delivering courses I really believe in creating peers, not followers. Passing on knowledge that is immediately useful in clinic and then seeing other Osteopaths delivering the goods and making it their own, makes it all worthwhile. Here are some comments from course delegates who have gone on to become members of the British Institute of Osteopathy.

I would like to thank and recommend The British Institute of Osteopathy’s Practical Course run by Howard Beardmore. Having graduated with a very structured approach, I have never felt that the models I use align with my technical approach. The BIO course cuts straight to the heart of Osteopathy and Howard pulls no punches when it comes to demonstrating it’s rich history. Whether it’s understanding the physiological link between patient symptoms and underlying pathology, or showing you how to pick up a limb properly, this course covers it all. I have helped patients resolve simple disc issues through to reversing amenorrhea. Using nothing but Howard’s teachings methods and techniques. I would recommend the BIO course pathways to anyone who wishes to gain an integrated treatment routine, clearly evolved osteopathic narrative and the confidence to help patients with more complex clinical presentations. Thanks Howard,

This course has been really enriching. I’ve been an osteopath for nearly 15 years and I found the course a great refresher and has restored my passion and enthusiasm for Osteopathy. Especially the illustrated real case histories and their modern interpretation. There has been a great balance of both theory and practical, and I’ve come away from the course with an enhanced understanding of Osteopathy.

Thanks for our visit in January. We had a really great time. Here are some comments from us regarding the outcome of the day, The techniques during the routine (the dorsal, sidelying and cervical adjustments) became clearer. We were also given the opportunity to work on the rhythm through the routine. It all came together as more fluent process in the routine The clinical set-up gave it a “real life”, live sensation feedback experience, which was really positive. Seeing and experiencing three different treatments and listen to the narratives in real time was invaluable! Take care and regards

Howard Beardmore has distilled his passion and knowledge of traditional osteopathic clinical practice and natural hygiene into a course fit for 21st century osteopathy. If you sometimes feel this nagging sense that there is something missing from your osteopathic education, you want to “dig deeper”, if you really want to make a difference and you want to practice in line with osteopathic principles then this is the course for you.

I completed Howard’s BIO practical course in 2019. The osteopathic narrative at the core of this course has transformed my practice. I am treating increasingly complex patients with increasingly improved treatment outcomes. I am getting referrals from other osteopaths. Clinical practice is easier and more rewarding.

To call this an online course is an understatement . It is a phenomenal contemporary and historical resource for the osteopathic profession with a practical clinical application.

Howard’s BIO course has revolutionised my practice as an osteopath. I have far greater confidence in managing patients since completing the course and this continues to improve with the ongoing mentoring and webinars – I completed the course in 2017. It has helped hugely in communicating to my patients that the journey to better health is a partnership we go on and they have an active role to play – I used to shoulder far too much responsibility for the patient’s outcomes before this course. Thank you for teaching me far more about Osteopathy in 12 months than I learned in 5 years at University.
