 "Countdown. Men’s health, a duty in the Osteopathic practice" 

"Introduction to the body organisation" 

Plus a presentation: " Is Osteopathy about Women's Health?" 


Course Outline

Saturday 19 November 2022

Men have poorer health outcome than women.

Osteopathy has the knowledge and skills to help this to change. Promote prevention and support men’s health symptoms.

Be part of the men’s health care system that is under enormous strain.

Prostate cancer nowadays kills more than breast cancer.

Nearly half of all men suffer from chronic pelvic pain syndrome at some stage in their lives.

50% of man by age 50 have erectile dysfunction, prostate enlargement, and lower urinary tract symptoms,

but symptoms arise at earlier age and thus increase with age. Osteopathy has the knowledge and skills to help to 

change this, and promote prevention and supporting men’s health.

It is concerning how the modern world's threatened sperm count is altering male and female reproductive development.

Over the last 30 years, sperm concentrations decreased up to 57%, increasing rates of infertility in couples.

Male patients ignore warning symptoms, deny health problems, which is why it is an osteopathic duty to improve men’s health

knowledge and skills. Osteopaths can help in prevention, improve symptoms and educate male patients to look after their health and be

part of the men's health care system that is under enormous strain. 


To give advanced knowledge to osteopaths that want to help men’s health issues.

To allow osteopaths to educate their patients, explaining how osteopathy can help men’s health.

"Osteopathic Considerations of

 Intra-Abdominal Pressure and Hypopressive Zones"

Course Outline

In this course we will look at the pressure compartments with main emphasis on the abdominopelvic cavity and intra-abdominal pressure (IAP). IAP variations may contribute to a variety of pathophysiological problems, ranging from musculoskeletal dysfunction, functional visceral complaints to medical problems such as intra-abdominal hypertension. Focus will be on IAP variations as they related to patients seen most frequently in osteopathic practice.


The IAP fluctuates according to the respiratory cycle, abdominal wall tension and its interaction with the viscera. Musculoskeletal, fascial, and visceral structures act as “hypopressive zones”, contributing to reducing pressure, improving the distribution of pressure, and support other structures to resist pressure. This course seeks to take an integrated approach to look at evaluating respiratory capacity and circulatory dynamics, intra-abdominal pressure and the hypopressive zones, with osteopathic therapeutic strategies to integrate these views in clinical practice. It will cover anatomy, physiology, clinical considerations, evaluation, and treatment strategies.

Venue: The Alexander Technique, 13 The Boulevard, Imperial Wharf, London SW6 2UB

Price: £300 including refreshments - MIH Members: £250
