The Definition of Osteomyology
The wording of our profession is Osteomyology or Neurosteomyology, which is a term defined either to mean the study of bone and muscle, or the study of the nervous system, bone and muscle which put together as Osteomyology defines a method of safely treating and healing patients using many and varied safe protocols. We bring together disciplines discovered and refined by some of the world’s greatest manual medical practitioners, which we have combined to produce and mould to our own specific philosophy (see practitioner details).
Osteomyology is a healing art
It can be experienced by anyone in the normal course of their life, and can bring help and comfort to patients suffering from a range of conditions. It does not necessarily mean that it is a cure for such conditions, but as a hands-on natural form of healing, can support and help coupled with other forms of treatment.
The method by which we treat
The Practitioner requests the patient to be comfortable (either dressed or un-dressed). A complete case history is taken from the patient and a series of tests are performed to elicit certain results in relation to the problem that the patient presents with. From these tests and further examination, both standing, sitting and couch lying, our Practitioners will then develop a diagnosis and prognosis, which will encompass the patient as a whole and not just as a symptomatic entity, ensuring that the patient is safe, warm and comfortable at all times.
The patient will then be given a form of treatment which best suits his or her problem using all the varied disciplines at the Osteomyologist’s command. The patient will be given a complete explanation as to what treatment will be most appropriate and 'permission to treat' will be asked. When this authority is obtained the treatment will commence.
Osteomyologists are governed and disciplined by a group of Committees which receive and investigate any complaints from the public and their peers. They are required to continue their professional training by attending CPD (continuing professional development). These are mandatory, and a required amount of hours are devoted to reflective practice and furthering their professional skills.
