“We look at the body in health as meaning perfection and harmony, not in one part, but in the whole. Health holds dominion over the body by laws as immutable as the laws of gravity.”

Welcome to The Osteopathic Alliance

The Osteopathic Alliance is an organisation formed to represent the philosophy and principles of osteopathy. In a fast moving regulatory and political landscape, osteopathy needs to be proactive if it is to maintain a full breadth of practice, whilst meeting contemporary demands.

Formed of osteopathic professional development colleges and osteopaths dedicated to promoting and preserving the breadth and diversity of osteopathy, the Alliance will engage with the Profession, GOsC, Institute of Osteopathy, COEI and other stakeholders to promote and preserve the fullest possible scope for osteopathic practice and education.

Our mission is to engage with regulatory and development initiatives to ensure that osteopathic philosophy, principles and scope of practice are fully preserved.
