Evolution of dysfunction as a whole and on a timeline

Human development is based on movement to achieve the desired evolution. What role do dysfunctions play in this development over time? What is the importance of clinical history from pregnancy onwards and what global implications could it have for the future, as a child, young person and adult?

Relating the Lines of force models to long lever treatment principles - A technical framework

The ‘Lines of force’ models that were passed down to J.M.Littlejohn, an early student of Still’s and instigator to a great extent of Osteopathy in Europe. These are models of the forces at the centre of the spinal mechanics. They have provided a working blue-print for Classical Osteopaths following in Littlejohn’s footsteps since. John Wernham, former president of the Institute of Classical Osteopathy published, taught and practiced these mechanical concepts with absolute finesse. With John Wernham as my mentor, I have taught these mechanical principles and how valuable they are in practice for over 30 years. This webinar will examine the relationships of the Lines of Force to the long lever technique approach of Still and Littlejohn and encourage you into bringing these into your practice to help with even the most complex of cases.

Reality depends on my Imaginary

This work will address the intersection of Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy and Psychosomatics. I will present a clinical case where the relationship between Imagination and somatization was explored through a creative and imaginary consciousness. We will comprehensively explore the coexistence of three aspects in psychosomatic pathology: the relational dimension, the bodily dimension, and the imaginary. Understanding how a limitation of access to the imaginary can compromise the relationship that exists between how the relational experience is interpreted, and simultaneously the body.

Physiological requirements of life - The philosophy and practice of Nature Cure and Classical Osteopathy

In this talk, Alex will explain the philosophy, practice and modern lifestyle of Nature Cure. Osteopathy was founded on a bed of Nature Cure and Natural Hygienic principles in the late 1800s, where Nature Cure hospitals treated thousands of patients with a full spectrum of health conditions and diseases. These principles and practices have not changed over time, yet their employment in the modern day world needs nurturing and development. This talk will give you the tools, confidence and inspiration for your own self development, as well as how to manage patients in practice.

About the Speaker

Alexander Johnson DO

The son of principal dancers at the Royal Ballet, Alex grew up with osteopathy playing a prominent role in maintaining his family's overall health. This strongly influenced his initial desire to become an osteopath and he subsequently began his training at the BSO - British School of Osteopathy in 1999. From 2000 he also began studying classical osteopathy at the Institute of Classical Osteopathy, as well as the philosophy of Nature's Cure.
He completed his first studies in 2003, and began working for a prestigious member of the BSO He and later also opened his own clinic in Chiswick. He completed his postgraduate training in Classical Osteopathy in 2006.
Starting in 2009, and through various family circumstances, Alex continued his in-depth study of Natural Healing, Natural Hygiene and Biogenic Living with his mentor, John Fielder, at the Academy of Natural Living in Australia. He was awarded full membership of the ISRN in 2015.
He currently works at his Osteopathic clinic in West London, practicing Classical Osteopathy and “direct” Natural Healing methods. He advocates the natural management of all acute crises without suppression. And, in managing patients with chronic illnesses, he focuses on eliminating the causes of toxicity in order to promote the ideal environment for the body to heal itself.

Some Common Themes in the Osteopathic Philosophy of JM Littlejohn and WG Sutherland

Drs Sutherland and Littlejohn represent the two main streams of osteopathic thinking emerging from the original teaching of Dr AT Still, both of them having had close contact with him before the American School of Osteopathy dramatically expanded after 1900. Although their technical approaches appear to differ, the principles and philosophy underpinning the richness of their work and profound contribution share the same essence, transcending the apparent divisions in our osteopathic profession. In this webinar, I look forward to exploring both the blending and the differences in emphasis in their osteopathic philosophy.

Mensagem do Director

Apesar de sermos uma instituição muito jovem, nem por isso nos devemos esquecer de que o que aqui fazemos é muito antigo, vem de muito longe e vai para muito longe: começou naquele dia perdido nos tempos em que pela primeira vez um ser humano percebeu que por detrás da biomecânica existia uma fisiologia imanente perante a equação da estrutura versos função e era obrigatório passar à geração seguinte a experiência e o saber que «o labor, o trabalho e a ação», como diria Hannah Arendt, lhe tinham proporcionado. Nesse dia longínquo, há dezenas de anos, esse ser humano deu início a uma das atividades mais belas e mais nobres da Humanidade: o ensino da Osteopatia.

 

É com o compromisso e o dever para com os nossos antecessores e alunos, que assumimos o ensino da Medicina Osteopática segundo os seus primórdios Princípios, com intuito na evolução e progresso do conhecimento.

 

Bem hajam ao IPOC.

 

O Diretor,
Marco Silvestre
