Pilates and its Inter-relationship with Osteopathy
Saturday, September 8, 2012 from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM (BST)
London, United Kingdom
This one day workshop, designed specifically for osteopaths, provides information on the history and evolution of the Pilates method and its potential benefit for patients. Consideration will be given to patient environment and activities in addition to postural and movement assessment, in order to help identify poor movement patterns, areas of potential weakness and compensation strategies.
Participants will be introduced to a selection of exercises and methods of delivery, that may assist patients on the 'road to recovery' until they can identify a Pilates class/1:1 tuition to attend.
Course Leader Richard Budd is fully studio qualified and part of a small team of teacher trainers presenting in the UK and abroad. Having trained at the British School of Osteopathy, Richard works with patients of all ages, integrating body awareness and exercise elements into each consultation, where possible.
When & Where
British School of Osteopathy (BSO)
The British School of Osteopathy (BSO) is the UK’s oldest and largest school of osteopathy. Located at the heart of central London’s cultural and commercial life, the BSO is easily accessible via major transport networks. In 2010, the BSO was shortlisted in the Charity of the Year (income £1m+) category of the Charity Times awards.
Since 2008 the BSO has offered a Master of Osteopathy degree – an integrated undergraduate master’s programme validated by the University of Bedfordshire. The course has recognised qualification status which allows graduates to apply for registration with the General Osteopathic Council, a legal requirement for anyone practicing as an osteopath in the UK.
The BSO also has a pioneering osteopathic research department supporting research at all levels, including undergraduate. It houses one of the best osteopathic libraries in the world, consulted by health care practitioners worldwide.
