What our students say

I’m so happy I did this course! So many pieces of my practice came together this weekend developing into a beautiful picture and state of awareness and allowance. The teacher’s and tutors were amazing and held such a loving and supporting space for us students to dig deeper into the RTM, bringing so much knowledge to the theory presented. Thank you!

“ ...the learning environment is really supportive. The tutors are fabulous; they take the time to gauge what each student needs and provide plenty of guidance and tips for personal development. ”

Maria Robinson

Recent Graduate
“ I warmly recommend SCCO courses to those who would like to explore osteopathy and treatment methods more deeply. The practicals in small groups (four students to one tutor), the well prepared lectures, as well as the wonderful locations, really make the courses worthwhile. ”

“ The diploma is hard work and you need to be committed and organised, but I have found it to be more than worth the effort. My practice has been changed by the experience. I am definitely a better osteopath now. ”

“ I could simply not imagine how I could work without the approach that I have learned at the SCCO. It has permeated every aspect of my treatment and fundamentally changed my osteopathic approach. Last but not least, my results with patients have never been better. ”
