The course


This is an annual post graduate course providing an opportunity for deepening our understanding of the work of A,T. Still, the founder of Osteopathy, WG Sutherland and James Jealous.

Biodynamic Osteopathy has grown internationally since the 1980’s. With the biodynamic curriculum and Biobasics courses now running in many countries including the US, France, Spain and the Netherlands.

On our course we have a two student per tutor ratio with fully qualified, registered osteopaths who ore also qualified in the biodynamic field of osteopathy, which means that they have completed seven phases of the biodynamic training.

We are a group of osteopaths with shared ideals who wish to study together to develop osteopathy with mutual support from each other.

This weekend is not one of the biodynamic phases but provides an introduction to Traditional Osteopathy emerging from the biodynamic curriculum of Dr James Jealous.
