Tree of Life – A History of the ESO

Since opening 50 years ago 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 founded the School along with her former husband, the late Tom Dummer DO.

Margery has now put her experiences and reminiscences into a fascinating book, Tree of Life, in which Margery looks back on the history of the school. 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.

All proceeds from sales of the book; which is available from all good book stores and on-line from Amazon and Waterstones, go towards a Study Fund for students at the ESO.  For more details click here.
