  courses in Australia, New Zealand and Europe 

are currently cancelled until 2023.


We thank you for your support over the years. 



as designed by Dr. James S. Jealous D.O.

The purpose of this program is to observe the laws of Nature at work throughout the body.

Phase 1 will cover:

Dr Sutherland's approach to Osteopathy in the later years of his life, when he was working with Balanced Fluid Tension (BFT).

This course will also review

  • Biomechanical and Functional methodology of Balanced Membranous Tension (B.M.T.)
  • Explore Motion present.
  • Biodynamic methodology of Patient's Neutral, natural boundaries,
  • Synchronization with Primary Respiration,
  • Sutherland perceptual odyssey,
  • C.N.S embryological development and function,
  • Natural Disengagement with B.M.T and B.F.T.,
  • Fluid fulcrums, Intraosseous patterns of motion.

Phase 2 will cover:

  • The concept of the 'fluid body' through an in-depth perception of fluid dynamics and its clinical significance.
  • Appreciation of the therapeutic and diagnostic use of Balanced Fluid Tension (BFT) around the fulcrum incited by the tidal forces.
  • Observation of the Longitudinal Fluctuation will be used as a diagnostic tool. CV4-EV4 treatment and its clinical relevance will be demonstrated.
  • At the end of the course, the osteopath will acquire a methodology to develop a sensory experience of the spontaneous therapeutic process of Automatic Shifting, occurring after the neutral.

Phase 3 will cover:

  • The embryological dural development up to a full adult including the anterior dural girdle and its clinical significance.
  • Diagnosis and treatment of intra-membranous shearing will be appreciated with the Long Tide.
  • This course will also enhance perceptual skills to distinguish between periosteal dura, meningeal dura and CNS, by finding the presence of the Therapeutic Forces of the Long Tide in the lesion.
  • The principles of treatment and clinical significance of the peritoneal sac are discussed.
  • The clinical significance and principles of treatment of the neuro-immune-endocrine connection and CV3 - the Bird- will be explored.
  • Throughout the course, the skill of tempo, humility and synchronizing with the Health will be developed.

Phase 4 will cover: 

  • The history of the midline in Osteopathy
  • Midline as a therapeutic force and its relationship to the soma.
  • Perceptual studies
  • The reciprocal tension of the potency
  • Treatment of the pre and post-natal maternal pelvis
  • The function of the neuro-immuno-endocrine system
  • Potency and Ignition 

Phase 5 will cover:

  • The embryological development of the head and upper neck.
  • The evaluation, diagnostic and treatment of the face and cranium
  • The upper, middle and lower face - anatomical, functional and biodynamic fluid fields and their importance in growth and development
  • The principles of treatment in clinical cases such as entrapment neuropathies, migraines, infection, dental work and trauma.
Phase 6 will cover
  • Treatment of the extremities with Sutherland's power points
  • Dr. Ruby Day's explanation of W.G. Sutherland's use of potency inside bones
  • Vomer and midline
  • Palatines and midfacial fluid fields
  • Craniometrics 
  • The facial treatments and endpoints.
Phase 7 will cover


  • management of pain in chronic and terminally ill patients, in conjunction with ongoing medical treatment
  • elevated allostatic load from chronic stress
  • Neutral of the health
  • Feeling the physical presence and substance of the perfect form
  • ‘Pregnancy brain’ in pregnant or post partum patients and age related cognitive decline (ARCD) in geriatric patients
  • head trauma and memory of matrix of the health


Phase 8 will cover 
  • Wholeness and the Osteopathic Philosophy applied through a patient with an osteoporotic spine
  • Neutral in the Whole, a journey back to Cause
  • Wholeness as a living reality
  • Functional reserve and elevated allostatic load from chronic stress; exploring the relevance of osteopathic treatment to re-establish a state of rest (homeostasis) in the whole patient.
  • The physiological effect of the first breath on the whole patient
  • Biodynamic principles to assess the function of the central nervous system
  • Embryological development of the paranasal sinuses.
  • Paranasal sinuses endothelium; one unit of function. The clinical relevance in treatment.

Phase 9 will cover

  • Dr Rollin Becker's legacy of Afferent History taking and shakedown.
  • Biodynamic assessment and evaluation of the inherent motion of the CNS.
  • Embryological development of the eye and the clinical significance of the optic axis and spatial dynamics.
  • Neutral, nature of Ignition and regeneration.
  • Natural boundaries; an overview of natural progression in the development of skills from Phase 1-9
  • Perceptual studies: the flow of attention in treatment.
