“For over twenty years now I have had the great good fortune to share my vision for osteopathy with many extraordinarily gifted colleagues through working in the clinics of the Foundation for Paediatric Osteopathy. Nothing in my experience can compare with the insights gained in sharing the joys, tragedies, treatment successes and exposure to unusual and severe conditions that happen in the open clinic setting on a daily basis.”
