One year in advance we are happy to present you the program of our conference that we organize every other year.

This time we choose to dive into the fascinating cranial field. Osteopathy has a long history of working on the human cranium. Of course WG Sutherland but also Charlotte Weaver were important for the development of osteopathy in the cranial field. Much changed in medicine and science since the times of our osteopathic ancestors. In the age of technology and informatics many tools and devices are developed to scientifically study the osteopathic models.

In this conference we combine science with the osteopathic practice. In the morning scientist and osteopaths are giving theoretical lectures about many aspects of the human cranium. The scientist will present to some recent insights, the osteopath will link these insights with the osteopathic practice. At the end of the morning program there will be a forum discussion and there will be time for questions.

In the afternoon there will be practical demonstration workshops. The osteopath will give a theoretical introduction about a topic and then demonstrate how this can be used in the osteopathic practice. Next to this there are two theoretical presentations where a scientist gives a deepening presentation about a certain topic. This is interesting for osteopaths that want to learn more about the science behind their work.

We are convinced that this format makes the conference interesting for every osteopath. There is a limit of 300 places due to the maximum of people that can be in the workshops. Attention: first come, first served….

When you are interested in a specific workshop, be early with you subscription, so that you have more chance that you have a place in this workshop.

You will receive more information about registration for the workshops later this year.
