Phase 1 overview:

The biodynamic view of osteopathy in the cranial field recognises that the embryological forces, that created the embryo, are also the forces of growth and development and the sustaining restorative forces throughout life. Working with these therapeutic, homeostatic forces, the practitioner is able to observe the reorganization of the body as a whole, through the internal disengagement and transmutation within tissue, fluid and potency
Phase 1 will cover
  • Identifying osteopathic biomechanical, functional and biodynamic methodologies through: Start points and end points.
  • Motion testing vs motion permitted vs ‘motion present’
  • The physiology of the lesion field
  • Thoracic and Primary Respiration Biodynamic methodology of Patient’s Neutral
  • Synchronisation with the Health
  • The prevention of side effects. Rebalancing
  • C.N.S embryological development, metabolic fluid fields, motion and function
  • Natural Disengagement within: Tissue –balanced Membranous tension (B.M.T) Fluid – Balanced Fluid Tension (B.F.T.)
  • Fluid fulcrums, Intra-osseous lesions and patterns of motion.
Eligibility: Osteopaths with an interest in communicating with the natural laws and inherent therapeutic forces within the body.


What is Osteopathy

Dr. Still, the founder, an American surgeon described it as: “Osteopathy is a scientific knowledge of anatomy and physiology in the hands of a person of intelligence and skill, who can apply that knowledge to the use of the man when sick or wounded by strains, shock, falls, or mechanical derangement or injury of any kind to the body. An up-to-date osteopath must have a masterful knowledge of anatomy and physiology… By our knowledge of physiology, we can comprehend the requirements of the circulation of the fluids of the body as to time, speed and quantity, in harmony with the demands of normal life.”Dr. Still, Philosophy and principles of osteopathy, published in 1892, Kirksville. Like many clinical investigators of his time, Still considered the patient to be his field of study and spoke of Osteopathy as: a Science, a Philosophy, and an Art. As the profession developed, osteopathic principles evolved as: 1. The body is a unit; the person is a unit of body, mind and spirit. 2. The body is capable of self-regulation, self-healing and health maintenance. 3. Structure and function are interdependent: This concept avoids the artificial separation of physiology, anatomy and biochemical and electrical fields. 4. The rationale of treatment is based upon an understanding of the basic principles of body unit, self-regulation and the inter-relationship of structure and function.
