Edward gained a first-class applied masters degree in osteopathy from the world-renowned European School of Osteopathy.

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.
