Osteopathy and Naturopathy

What is Osteopathy?

BCOM is known nationally and internationally for its naturopathic approach to osteopathy. Osteopathy is a patient centred approach for a wide range of medical conditions.

Osteopathy is based on the  principle that good health  and harmonious interrelation  of skeleton, muscles, ligaments  and connective tissue are  crucial to an individual’s well being. Osteopathic care commences with the  identification of the cause/s of  the complaint and then uses  soft tissue work and gentle  physical manipulation and appropriate self care advice on dietary intake, exercise/life-style, emotional/psychological well-being  to  improve function, aid health  and reduce the risk of  reoccurrence of the presenting complaint.

What is Naturopathy?

Naturopathy (aka naturopathic medicine) is a system of treatments and healthcare that support the body’s innate ability to heal itself.  It is a holistic system that believes that promoting a general state of wellbeing through dietary principles, lifestyle, exercise and mental wellbeing are effective ways to manage our physiological systems.  Naturopathy uses a wide range of therapeutic disciplines or modalities.

In addition to physical treatment, BCOM’s students are taught to consider dietary intake, psychological/emotional states and lifestyle/exercise whilst managing a patient.

Successful completion of BCOM’s Master in Osteopathy also entitles the graduate to register as a Naturopath as well as an osteopath.
