Highlights: The Institute of Classical Osteopathy’s Foundation Course is designed to develop the practitioner’s knowledge and understanding of Classical Osteopathic philosophies, principles, concepts and technical skills – as formulated over a hundred years ago by AT Still and then further interpreted by JM Littlejohn. 
 
This course will explore the classical belief that a body is a vital living organism with a normal tendency towards self-healing, elimination and health and that the development of disease depends on any factors which lower the vital force or vitalising processes of the patient.  The concept that the osteopathic lesion can therefore only be addressed through physiological processes is examined.  In addition, the applied anatomy and physiology of the body, along with Fryette’s and Littlejohn’s osteopathic centres and biomechanical models of the effects of gravity on the spine are reviewed.
Students are shown how to apply this approach in practice with the ‘whole body’ treatment routine practice by classical osteopaths to co-ordinate the structural and functional activities of the body.
Involvement during this 5 module course provides eligibility for clinical training and development at the Society of Osteopathic Wellness approved clinics in Ontario and subsequent progression onto the more advanced Applied Course – the successful completion of which results in a Diploma in Classical Osteopathy.
Completion of the foundation course leads to eligibility for associate membership with the Institute of Classical Osteopathy.
CPD Hours = 140 hours of practical training
 
Cost: $6500 plus HST – payment plans are available
