Sunday 12 to Friday 21 September 2021
With Christian FOSSUM, David LACHAIZE and Prof Renzo MOLINARI
Christian Fossum: 12, 13 and 14 September 2021 -  The Containers and their Environs
This course will examine the role of the two major “containers” (pelvis and thorax) and their multidimensional interaction with the body as a whole in function and dysfunction. It is divided into multiple parts which will all follow with theoretical and practical sessions.
Prof Renzo Molinari:  15 September 2021- Clinical Approach of Post-Covid patients
David Lachaize: 16 and 17 September 2021 -  The Thrust - an expertise and an essential skill in Osteopathy
Application within the concept of "Structural Tissue Manipulation"

The aim of this course is to develop the hands-on skills of the thrust.

The thrust technique can occasionally be quite forceful which has led many osteopaths to avoid its use. This technique is however part

of our osteopathic heritage and it is very efficient provided it is well practised respecting the tissue. Contrary to what we may think, the technique does not need any force and it isn’t painful! The thrust, how we will consider it, is a technique of energetic manipulation. We will work on its practical position and the fundamental elements involved.

We will demonstrate this work by addressing the entire lumbar-sacral region and the thoraco-lumbar junction within the concept of

«Structural Tissue Manipulations».

Our aim is that you can use these new skills in the manipulations that you already practise. It’s not about having a list of manipulations. We will take our time to break down the techniques and work on the quality of the hand positioning and on the precision of the technique.

The cost of each seminar includes:
- Course and handouts
- Six nights in a twin bedroom with en-suite bathroom

How to get the the island of Ios: there are daily direct flights to Santorini with Easyjet and British Airways and  other low cost airlines.
It is then a 30 minutes crossing in a speed ferry to Ios.

Santorini is the closest island you can go by plane, but you can also choose to fly to Mykonos or even Athens (the port of Rafina is the closest to the airport) and from there take a ferry.  We suggest you travel 1 or 2 days before the start of the course to allow you time to connect your flight and your ferry. 


Several ferries companies sail to Ios: please visit the websites below for itineraries and timetables:

Once registered, delegates will receive more information and support to facilitate their travel arrangements.
