Edward gained a first-class applied masters degree in osteopathy from the world-renowned European School of Osteopathy. He was a student of leading osteopaths, learning osteopathic techniques including visceral, structural, myofascial, functional and cranio-sacral. His anatomy tutors included multi award-winning Osteopath Gerry Carter and internationally esteemed Professor of Anatomy, Frank Willard. In addition to other osteopathic courses, Edward’s training incorporated three years of medical imaging. As a result he is qualified to refer for diagnostic ultrasound, MRI, X-ray and CT scanning. This vastly improves his diagnostic capability, enabling a more accurate prognosis and safe selection of appropriate treatment.
