Following on from his successful course on Neural Manipulation OSS is pleased to announce the return of experienced Osteopath and Lecturer Richard Twining to talk about Fluids.  The World Health Organisation recognises the Osteopathic 5-Model Concept as making a unique contribution to health care. One of the models, the respiratory/circulatory (or fluid) model, is often under-represented in UK formal osteopathic education, despite being important to much of A.T. Still’s teaching and writing and being an effective treatment approach to tissue dysfunction. Fluids comprise some 55-65% of the adult body and they are essential to the understanding of tensegrity biomechanics. Taking many forms – blood, lymph, extracellular, intracellular, digestive, serous and CSF – they are moved by a number of mechanisms, which need to be understood for effective treatment.

This highly practical post-graduate weekend will explore the importance of the concepts, main restriction points, and the effectiveness of fluid based approaches and techniques. As the bulk of fluids are in the visceral system, some knowledge of visceral osteopathy would be an advantage but not essential.


RICHARD TWINING is a graduate of the European School of Osteopathy (ESO) and holds a Postgraduate Diploma in Osteopathy.  He is an Associate Member of the Royal Society of Medicine.  


He led the visceral osteopathy programme and teaching team at ESO from 2006-12 and was a student clinic tutor 2009-12. At he same time he taught for the ESO’s partner colleges in Russia, Poland and Spain. He took a break from  the ESO in 2012 and taught across Europe which took him to Poland, Greece, Italy, France and Turkey He also taught in the Pacific (Japan and New Zealand) and Caribbean returning as head of the  ESO’s international department in 2015, a post from which he retired in 2022. He remains on the UK register and now teaches in Denmark, Greece, Poland and Germany​.
