Osteopaths Training and Qualifications
Undergraduate osteopathy students can follow a four-year full time or five year part-time course that involves combining academic work, technique classes and over 1000 hours of clinical  practise. Osteopaths will qualify with a Masters degree in osteopathy MOst, BSc (Hons), Bachelors in osteopathy BOst. Prior to this a DO (diploma in osteopathy) was awarded but has now been overpassed university awarded degrees.

After graduating osteopaths are required to do 30 hours of CPD (continual professional development) each year. This can consist of self-study, attending workshops, courses or seminars. This ensures we are kept up to date with current research, treatment protocols and techniques.
How many treatments will I need
The number of treatments varies depending on the conditions and the person being treated. We aim to keep appointments to a minimum. We look to see if treatment is making a change. We may recommend long term maintenance treatments are regular intervals, depending on the individual and their lifestyle; this could range from once a month to once every six months.
Does it hurt?
Some techniques may cause some discomfort during treatment. We, of course, try to keep this to a minimum. We will tell you what to expect, and do let us know if you are in pain. You may feel a little sore after treatment; this is a healthy and normal reaction. 
Do I need to see my GP first?
If privately paying for your treatment, you do not have to see your GP first. However, some insurance companies require you to get referred from your GP first. 
What if i need to cancel my appointment
