About Osteopathy

Osteopaths treat the whole person not the condition

 

AshteadOsteo9All Osteopaths undergo a minimum of 4 years undergraduate training and must complete 1000 clinical hours in the College Clinics.

The GOSc (General Osteopathic Council) is our state regulating body. They ensure we meet a strict fitness to practice and code of practice criteria. Osteopaths must also complete extra hours annually to meet CPD requirements.

Structural osteopathy
