This is where you can enrol on different memberships.
There is a lot of freely available information on the Understanding Osteopathy page. This will help you begin to understand how osteopathic approaches may help women and children.
Basic membership is available for everyone who wants to explore osteopathy for women and children in more depth, including where osteopathy fits in, how to consider evidence, what the role and aims of osteopathic intervention is and what it consists of. This will help people consider how osteopaths may help them and their families, and will help health professionals osteopathic practice in more depth. This membership will help people and other health professionals understand the osteopathic approach in more depth than the free resources available elsewhere on this site. It gives access to various courses to take the learning journey further.
Higher level memberships are available for osteopathic practitioners, where evidence based practice, clinical dynamics, reflective practice and osteopathic concepts are explored in depth. There are two tiers here, the Osteopathic Community membership, for additional training and support, and the top level tier, for those who deliver specialised care, have had their training and skills assessed, and who offer advanced care and case analysis, operating in a critical reflective and evidence informed advanced level dynamic. In the higher level tiers there are a number of additional courses available, resources to download, forums and clinical training, mentorship and support.
Please note higher tiers of membership require osteopathic qualifications / training to be confirmed.
Osteopathic Members who have undergoing additional training and who are part of the WHOMBS membership community are identified by our WHOMBS FRIENDLY badge, which they can display on their website.
Osteopathic members who have undertaken our credentialing / certification process are identified by our WHOMBS CERTIFIED badge, which they can display on their website.
We do not currently hold a register of members but may seek to add this in the future.
