    Expand Your Osteopathic Skills with a Deeper Understanding of the Central Nervous System

    Highly regarded by its practitioners and patients, cranial osteopathy studies the anatomy and physiology of the cranium and its inter-relationship with the body as a whole. Find out how this method may be applied for the prevention and treatment of disease and enhancement of health. What You Will Learn
    • Explore the five components of the primary respiratory mechanism, including articular, cerebrospinal fluid, fascial/membranous and nervous system anatomy.
    • Deepen your understanding of the body as a dynamic unit with a capacity for self-healing.
    • Establish the basis for palpatory diagnosis and treatment.
    Course Director: Richard F. Smith, DO Assistant Course Director: Annette Hulse, DO Registration Fee: $1,895 The OCA has developed a hybrid format for this course with both online and in-person components:
    • Virtual Lectures and Group Discussions: Lectures will be presented online, with 4.5 hours of video recordings delivered each week beginning Sept 12th. At the end of each week, participants will join in a mandatory 1 hour-long discussion group via Zoom on Sept 18, Sept 25, Oct 2 and Oct 9, 2022 (multiple time slots will be available).
