Tree of Life: A History of the ESO – buy online £12

Since its foundation in Paris in 1951, the ESO has graduated students from 30 different countries and has spearheaded the growth of osteopathy across Europe.  Much of the School’s current reputation and continued success is due to the firm foundations laid down by Margery Bloomfield, who co-founded the School along with her former husband, the late Tom Dummer DO.

Margery has put her experiences and reminiscences into a fascinating book, Tree of Life, in which Margery looks back on the the School’s first 50 years. Full of anecdotes and photographs, it is a fascinating story of how even the most challenging problems can be overcome with dedication, enthusiasm and determination.

We are delighted to say that Margery has signed the rights to her book over to the ESO, with all proceeds from sales going towards a Study Fund for students.  To purchase a copy of Tree of LIfe please click on the adjacent image or contact the Library on 01622 671558 /
