Course overview 

This is one of two courses that will review osteopathic technique, from articulation to HVT. These are predominantly practical courses with the majority of time spent practising techniques and gaining confidence in each approach. 

Each course will begin with a theory element covering the safety implications of techniques, for example red flags and gaining consent for specific techniques and adjustments; we will then cover the latest research on how techniques work and how effective they are, followed by a review of anatomy for the specific areas, to gain an understanding of what we are effecting. The course will then move on to practical techniques and adjustments of lumbar spine, thoracic spine, C/T junction and the rib cage, covering a number of different techniques, articulation and HVT. 


  • Saturday – AM: Theory,  PM: Lumbar techniques & rib techniques
  • Sunday – AM: Thoracic techniques,  PM: C/T Junction techniques & review of techniques

The second course will take place on 5-6 December 2020. This will cover techniques for articulation and HVT of the cervical spine, pelvis and sacroiliac joints whilst also reviewing the spinal adjustments.

Each course will cover different areas of the body and may be attended independently if preferred. Courses are suitable for Osteopaths, Physiotherapists and Chiropractors
