This practical course is a truly unique opportunity for any osteopath seeking to understand the breadth and depth of the role of the lymphatic system in the physiology of health and disease.

It is founded on three decades’ worth of Dr Hugh Ettlinger’s clinical experience of applying osteopathic principals to critically ill patients in a hospital setting.

Recent research has revealed the critical role of inflammation and the interstitium in virtually all disease processes and helps us understand the wide ranging success of the early osteopaths.

We are truly honoured to welcome Dr Ettlinger to the UK and look forward to an exciting and important course.
