Advanced Course in Complementary Osteopathic Techniques

Osteopathy is a manual therapy with a holistic view of the human body – with benefits recognized by the World Health Organization – with the aim of restoring the balance of structures and systems of human anatomy (joints, muscles, ligaments, fascia, viscera, nervous tissue , vascular and lymphatic). It is an effective non-invasive therapy not only in case of illness but also in the preventive phase. His holistic view of the organism, in which everything is connected and related, makes the therapist focus not on the problem, but mainly on its causes.

In this Advanced Course in Complementary Osteopathic Techniques, a line of teaching is created centered on students, promoting a culture of research and critical reflection that develops and integrates knowledge and skills of basic sciences, osteopathic principles and Ayurvedic knowledge. This learning model has an evolutionary character in which a bridge is built between scientific knowledge and clinical practice as the different modules of the course progress curricularly.

Through supervised training, it is intended that students acquire professional skills in the field of musculoskeletal care, in order to become able to exercise in different professional contexts, individually or actively participating in multidisciplinary teams, with a responsible and ethical attitude in performance, ensuring the safety, effectiveness and quality of its services to users. This advanced course allows a functional integration of practical knowledge that will enable trainees to complement their knowledge and act in different areas of specific intervention, including: sports, paediatrics, obstetrics and geriatrics.

The Advanced Course in Complementary Osteopathic Techniques is a 222-hour training course and can be attended as a whole, or each module as an individual and independent training.

As the name implies, this course is not intended to replace a degree in Osteopathy, nor does it allow access to the profession of Osteopath, but rather to provide knowledge of the most used complementary techniques.
