Diploma in Animal Osteopathy/Manual Therapy 2017- 2018

Starting October 2017 

This course is ideal for anyone who has already undertaken one of the Foundation Courses that are run with the ESO or for those who have undertake a foundation (structural) level course with Stuart McGregor. It is also ideal for those with a professional level massage or bodywork (for animals) qualification.

Exploring the use of truly osteopathic techniques, this course is aimed at those who want to use more than massage and general manual techniques to treat their animal patients.

Please note: A conversion course is required for those without an osteopathic/chiropractic/physiotherapy background to ensure that all our students start with the same base knowledge. 


Association of Animal Osteopaths AGM 

Location: Best Western Hotel, Reigate Hill, Surrey, RH2 9PF

Date: September 1st 2017 @ 1930hrs


If you are wishing to attend or have AOB please email the secretary at as soon as possible and by the latest 25th August.  Full members have the opportunity to vote at the AGM.

If you are not attending and wish to submit your proxy vote to a committee member or an attendee, please email the secretary with the name of the person you wish to vote on your behalf and a declaration that you hand this individual your voting rights to use as they see fit.

Once again we have reached that time of year when we are looking to recruit new committee members to move the AAO forward.  Our committee meetings are held by Skype, many of our discussions and decisions are made via email and most work is done outside of committee, so location is no problem and the more people we have involved, the more representative we will be and the more we can do together, to register your interest please contact the secretary at  by the latest 25th August.

You can be proposed or put yourself forward for any of the posts on the Committee, including those where people are putting themselves forward for re-election. Committee meets 7-10 times a year by Skype conference call (including 2-4 times a year face to face) and committee members need to be prepared to carry out tasks in between times for the benefit of the Association on a voluntary basis. If you wish to stand for committee, please notify the Secretary by email or telephone by Friday 25th August stating which role you wish to apply for, and providing a brief statement as to your relevant skills for that position. In the event of more than one person standing for a position, you will need to say a few words about yourself before a vote is made by Members.
