Osteopathy students learn methods of utilizing hands-on (manual) and natural treatments. Being able to merge, assess, and affect any tissue structure at a deeper level with precision, sets osteopathy apart from all other healing disciplines. This course will incorporate all three synchronistic flow; CranioSacral (John Upledger), visceral manipulation (Jean-Pierre Barral), and vascular manipulation (Frank Lowen).

Advanced Osteopathy 3 (IET EQ OSTEO3) 3-Day Course

Visceral Manipulation


Students will focus on becoming proficient at resetting diaphragm spasms, organ dysfunctions, urogenital system, and lumbar pelvis constrictions.
Diaphragm spasms are common and often the primary cause of debilitating symptoms that are difficult to resolve without therapeutic intervention. Symptoms like physical lameness, metabolic, and emotional indications are caused by diaphragm spasms and are also cleared when treating the diaphragm. Students will focus on visceral manipulation techniques, lumbar torsions, subluxations, and resetting pelvic and sacral dysfunctions. Clearing soft tissues, joint dysfunctions via vascular, neural, lymphatic, and manipulations will be addressed.
Advanced Osteopathy 3 (EQ OSTEO 3) Course is the third course in the Advanced Osteopathy Series & Certification Program. Each Osteopath Course builds on the previous course and it is important to take each course in order. Students interested in becoming certified in the Integrated Equine Therapies Advanced Osteopathy will need to complete all 4 courses and enroll in the Certification Program. These courses are suitable for horse owners, trainers, equine therapist, veterinarians, and all equine professionals. Techniques taught in this clinic will increase your skill set and enhance your effectiveness.
