A Perceptual Journey in Osteopathy: ‘Wholeness, Flow and Form’ 

This is an interactive osteopathic postgraduate course witnessing the River of Life’s influence on form and function, guiding the growth and development of the extremities. Trauma to limbs can have far reaching effects on psychosocial behaviour, postural awareness, proprioception and locomotion. This course will continue the theme of ‘Where is the Power for Change’.

Through acknowledging the River of Life, the osteopath and patient begin to sense the original organisational spatial geometry of the Health communicating with the restorative embryological memory reorganising form, and restoring a sense of spatial proportion, improved function and wellbeing,

One will witness the Invisible Formlessness informing the Form.
