Date: Saturday/Sunday January 17-18, 2015
Time: TBA (Hamilton, ON)
Dr. A. T. Still – The Mechanical Mind behind all Motion.
Jamie Archer holds a Bachelors Degree of Osteopathy with Distinction from the British School of Osteopathy (London) and a Postgraduate Certificate in Applied Clinical Anatomy from Keele University. After graduating, Jamie worked as clinical assistant to a 96 year old Osteopath, John Wernham (a one-time student of Dr J.M. Littlejohn) before then setting up his own private practice in Derbyshire, UK.
Along with being a member of the teaching faculty for the Institute of Classical Osteopathy (UK), Jamie is one of the key historical researchers for the Museum of Osteopathic Medicine, Kirksville, USA (formerly the Still National Osteopathic Museum), researching, publishing and teaching the manipulative methods of Dr. A.T. Still and the early osteopathic pioneers. In the past few years Jamie has produced working replicas of some of Dr. Still’s inventions including the famous ‘treating chair’ and ‘saint’s rest’ which can be found in the museum.
Jamie has lectured all over the world on Dr. Still and his methods, including at the founding school of Osteopathy (A.T.Still University) in Kirksville, Missouri, USA. Jamie is a member of the British Osteopathic Association and the American Academy of Osteopath.
This lecture will involve lecture & lab work over a 2 day period.
This weekend will focus on Dr. Still and his early graduates’ manipulative methods. Regions that they considered important will be discussed and demonstrated, such as the hip, ribs and clavicles, along with the applied anatomy. Delegates will be encouraged to explore methods of manipulation from their own understanding of Osteopathic principles just as Dr. Still intended.
Attendance at Part I of this lecture (November) is highly recommended. By the end of the two weekends, delegates will have a deeper appreciation of the history of their profession its founder and early pioneers. They will see how, through principles, they can apply their Osteopathy intelligently to the sick and injured, therefore avoiding routine or procedure and becoming free thinking Osteopaths just as the ‘old doctor’ expected.
This event is open to the CICO community only. Cost for the 2 days of lectures is $100 including HST. The CICO is free to join. To register for the event contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
