Osteopathic and Functional Manual Medicine Education
Embodied, somatophysiological osteopathic care - continuing the legacy of Dr Still and Dr Littlejohn.
The CNMO, founded by Caroline Stone D.O.(Hons), MSc(Ost), MEd, MClinEd, focuses on osteopathic medicine approaches - and how hands on care, and the application of osteopathic principles may help a range of systemic, visceral and pathological problems, and help people suffering with a range of non musculoskeletal presentations improve their function and quality of life.
Why "Non Musculoskeletal"? Because Osteopathy is about health, using bodywork to support homeostasis and self-regulation, and engaging with physiological processes to help functional and emotional integration. Osteopathy is not a biomechanical science but a physiological one which using somatic dynamics for health communication and restoration.
Some programmes are restricted to qualified osteopaths, chiropractors, physiotherapists and allied health professionals, but the College has other programmes in our 'somatophysiological bodywork' section that are open to general bodyworkers, massage therapists, complementary and natural medicine practitioners and other healthcare professionals interested in using touch base care in their work, or simply understanding more about these approaches and how care can be integrated.
