If you answer yes to any of these questions, then the Rule of the Artery (ROA) course is a 'must' for you. Many of the students at our previous UK ROA courses have found it to be a total 'game changer' in how they think and work osteopathically! The ROA courses were developed by Maxwell Fraval and Anthony Norrie who were students at the BSO and ESO before emigrating to Australia and New Zealand.
Anthony Norrie has been travelling the world teaching these courses so we are very fortunate to be able to offer it here locally in the UK.
There are three Rule of the Artery courses - Parts 1, 2 and 3; so completion of this course will entitle you to progress to ROA 2.
We look forward to seeing you on this significant step forward in your osteopathic development.
* Residential accommodation at Hawkwood is in shared rooms, a limited number of singles are available at a supplement and allocated on a first-come-first-served basis.
