When searching for an Osteopathic Practitioner, there are a few things you should know:
Osteopathy is not yet regulated in BC (although we are working on it!) and as such, it is important to verify that your practitioner meets certain criteria such as:Having graduated from a program that meets or exceeds the World Health Organization's benchmarks for training in osteopathy (which refers to "in-person" training with a focus on practical, hands on learning rather than online training)
Following a Code of Ethics and Professional Standards of Practice
Having professional liability insurance
Being part of a provincial association that is affiliated with the Canadian Federation of Osteopaths (CFO)
Regularly pursuing continuing education studies
OsteopathyBC takes all the guesswork out of finding an Osteopathic Practitioner as all of our members are required to meet and follow the above criteria.
You know you’re in good hands with OsteopathyBC.
