The purpose of this website is to promote traditional osteopathic practice as first disseminated by Andrew Taylor Still in June 1874 and his followers. It will be contributed to by practitioners who are inspired to work this way, and by patients who have sought out this approach as an alternative modus - all wishing to disseminate their experience. This will provide a unique opportunity to re-establish an understanding of basic biological truths with regard to the restoration and maintenance of health.
The British Institute of Osteopathy is a recognising body as opposed to a registering body. Its aim is to recognise contributors to the therapeutic of traditional osteopathic practice, and those who have established basic biological truths by the work that they have done or degree of reflective criticism that they have offered; that has in turn contributed to aspects of traditional osteopathic principles and practice.
