The purpose of the School of Structural Therapy (SST) is to provide allied health professionals ie. physiotherapists, massage therapists and chiropractors with continuing education opportunities on an ongoing basis. Currently, there is no branded academic institution offering such a variety of courses in osteopathic technique, with classroom instruction from classically trained osteopaths. The highest level of academic instruction, by reputable professors with a pedigree of learning in drugless manual osteopathy, makes the School of Structural Therapy unique and unmatched.
The School of Structural Therapy provides an avenue for therapists who are looking to enhance their treatment skills in a dynamic learning environment without the commitment of full-time intensive osteopathic training. Our courses teach leading edge techniques, at bottom-line prices, that transfer seamlessly into clinical practice for improved patient outcomes.
The School of Structural Therapy is committed to being the academic institution of choice for continuing education, and will continue to be recognized for exemplary classroom instruction and performance that is second to none.
