Through advanced techniques of consciousness programming and quantum neurolinguistics the skills beliefs and competencies will be installed in the student on both a conscious and unconscious level leading to unconscious competence.

The four stages of competence, also known as the four stages of learning, is a model based on the premise that before a learning experience begins, learners are unaware of what or how much they do not know (unconscious incompetence), and as they learn, they move through four psychological states until they reach a stage of unconscious competence. Unconscious competence is the state in which, the individual has enough experience with the skill that he or she can perform it so easily they do it unconsciously. The goal of this course is to produce Master clinicians with the ability to create and expand the field of Osteopathy.

Month 1

Andrew Taylor Still MD

I am simply trying to teach you what you are; to get you to realize your right to health, and when you see the cures wrought here, after all other means have failed, you can but know that the foundation of my work is laid on nature’s rock.
—Autobiography of A. T. Still

We will study the work of Andrew Taylor Still and the beginnings of Osteopathy.  We will learn in depth the little known underpinnings of Osteopathy and how they shaped the profession. Exploration of Life and times of Dr Still, his beliefs and techniques that led to  many previously unheard of cures and examine his techniques and methodologies.

Month 2 William Garland Sutherland DO

As a newspaper reporter he was assigned to debunk the  supposed miraculous cures attributed to a Lightning Bonesetter—- Dr. Andrew Taylor Still. After countless eyewitness  experiences Sutherland became convinced that the cures were real. Sutherland becomes enamored by Dr Still’s  teachings and philosophy. So convinced of the validity of the Science he quit his job and became one of Still’s most ardent students. As he completes his studies he  is not convinced that he has acquired all of Still’s secrets. Querying Dr Still, he is told to investigate  the highest known element—- the cerebrospinal fluid. Beginning with the bones and the work of Charlotte Weaver DO, he investigates osseuos movement of the cranium. This begins years of painstaking research and  experimentation. With the help of quantum physicists closely linked to Albert Einstein,  an expanded form of Osteopathy emerges which is departs from the Newtonian physics model used by Dr Still  and embraces the quantum theories of Einstein and Walter Russell. The student will learn the thought processes , reasoning,  and techniques of this master.

Month 9 Evaluation and Treatment of Potency

The body has the capacity to express health through  inherent potency.  We will examine inherent potency as it is found within the intricate matrix of the brain and spinal cord and how to direct resources and resolve  dysfunction . Dr Sutherland said at the very core of total health there is a potency with the human body manifesting it in health. At the very core of every trauma or disease condition within the human body there is a potency manifesting its relationship with the body in trauma or disease. It is up to us to learn to feel this potency. It is relatively easy to feel the tensions and stresses of trauma and disease as they are manifesting their patterns. But within these manifesting elements there is a potency that is able ‘to control or influence, having authority or power.’ It centers the disturbance. It can be sensed and read by a feeling touch. In this month we learn about fluid function, motion and learning to correct these inherent restrictions which limit the ability of the organism to express its inherent potency.

Month 11 Principles of Energetic Treatment

Osteopathic treatment with the goal of gaining access to the central nervous system begins with the physical structure. This may include spinal mobilization, visceral manipulation and treating the fluid system. to ensure that all structures are free of restriction. Once the physical structure is free cranial techniques are used to on remove strain patterns, restoring the fluid balance and restoring inherent therapeutic potency. We will review these avenues of treatment and explore other avenues avenues of and treatment approaches to the subtle body..

Month 12

Physical and  Emotional Traumas As A Cause of The Osteopathic Lesion

1874, Andrew Taylor Still, MD, the founder of osteopathy and its clinical, diagnostic, and therapeutic implementations, developed a theory that the disease process arises when the flow of life is interrupted. In this unit we will discuss the origin of the Osteopathic lesion physically, emotionally, and energetic imprints which may  be responsible for the maintenance of long term dysfunction. We will examine diagnostic and methodological approaches to address the Osteopathic lesion.

March 21-24, 2022

Clinical Rotation: Sedona, AZ, USA

Year 2

Month 1

Addressing the Underlying Lesion through Dialogue with The Living Organism

We will further refine our skills in the ability to interact with the body as well as the psyche of the organism. We will explore ways to dialogue with the body systems to discover trapped or retained dysfunctional patterns.

Month 2

Palpation and the deep primitive immune system.

Osteopathy has long been associated with an improved healing response in the cellular tissues and improved immune response. We will examine the role of Osteopathy in immune system enhancement, the glympatic system, the role of deep cervical lymph nodes and immune function. We will present keys ways to increase the total body immune system by, increase the immune response, and enhance the function of the deep immune system.

Month 3. Biomedical Approach to the Osteopathic Lesions.

Genetics, nutrition, physicial trauma, toxic exposures, significant emotional events all contribute to the  maintenance of the Osteopathic Lesion we will examine dietary approaches and detoxification protocols that aid in resolving Osteopathic lesions and  making Osteopathic treatment more effective.

Month 4

Osteopathic Approach to Energy Medicines

In this unit we will examine plant based medicines and their effect on Osteopathic Treatment including common plant based remedies and how to safely  and effectively recommend them to enhance Osteopathic care.  We will examine the use of acute care homeopathy and its use in treatment.

Month 5 Persistent Primitive Reflexes as A Cause of Persistent Osteopathic Lesions

A persistent problem seen in patients with long standing Osteopathic lesions is that  primitive neurological reflexes may not integrate during the typical developmental stages which are documented in the literature. Unintegrated reflexes can interfere with many aspects of learning, physical movement, development, and behavior. Integrating a reflex connects nerve nets or repairs them to allow rapid and efficient transmission of impulses along nerve cells. Individuals long term Osteopathic Lesions such as as autism, ADD/ADHD, brain injuries, cerebral palsy, T-21/Down syndrome, dementia, learning disabilities, strokes, and pain are finding a reduction of symptoms when we address these reflexes.

Month 6

Resolution of Trauma Stored In The Tissue

Andrew Taylor Still stated that the memory is stored in the fascia. We will learn techniques to resolve and eliminate these memories which are often responsible for long standing dysfunction. The practitioner will learn ways to address trapped emotions, limiting decisions, and dysfunctional metaphors that may limit the patients innate ability to manifest total health.

Month 7

Time Line Integration and Osteopathic Lesion

Through working with the perception of time within the body, locating emotions that have become trapped within body tissues we can resolve longstanding conflicts and behavior that are responsible for the maintenance of the Osteopathic Lesion. We will address how to locate, identify, and release trapped significant emotional traumas that may be the cause of long standing dysfunction patterns.

Month 8

Addressing the Gut-Brain Axis

This nervous system is located inside the wall of the GI tract, extending from the esophagus to the rectum. Technically, it is known as the enteric nervous system, or ENS, but it has been given other labels, too: “second brain. Its treatment was first mentioned in the early Osteopathic literature. Disruption of this axis has been associated with Pain, Anxiety, Depression, Multiple Sclerosis, Autism and many other conditions. We will study the role of osteopathy in restoring the well-functioning of the disrupted physiological system due to toxic exposure and its influence on the gut-brain axis. We will learn therapeutic manual techniques that may be used to assess and reduce the effects of toxic overload in the gastrointestinal system.

We will address ways integrated Osteopathy can assist and resolution and balancing of this important axis.

Month 9

The Brain & Spinal Cord

As the lungs breathe and the heart beats with a rhythmic alternating expansion and contraction, the central nervous system (CNS) also has its own involuntary rhythmic motion. Dr. Sutherland described this inherent activity of the CNS as a respiratory motion with “inhalation” and “exhalation” phases. The hands of a skilled osteopathic physician connect directly with the primary respiratory mechanism to bring about a therapeutic response. We will examine Systemic Central Nervous System Issues that can cause a multitude of effects. Seizure disorders, stroke, developmental delay are all the consequence of Central Nervous System Dysfunction .

Month 10

Osteopathy & The Vagus Nerve

Since the early days of Osteopathy and continuing with the work of William G. Sutherland the vagus nerve has been identified as a key lesion in whole body dysfunction. Emerging evidence has begun to depict the molecular mechanisms by which inflammation is regulated via the vagus nerve. Specifically, inflammation can be controlled by neuro immune circuits upon vagal afferent and efferent fibers, operating in a reflexive continuum.  We will examine the vagus nerve, polyvagal theory, and far reaching techniques and at will resolve these dysfunctions.

11 Special topics

Special topics selected by the  master clinicians will be presented.

Month 12. Integration

We will examine key areas of integrated Osteopathy and how these are best used in practice working with specific cases. A comprehensive review of everything learned in the program and graduation.
