Nicolas Mariette and associates are putting on another osteopathic course, 'abdominal visceral'.  We'll start with some theory (motility vs mobility, core-link etc.) and then practical. Nic had the benefit of being taught by some of the great osteopaths who are considered the masters of the visceral world, John- Pierre Barral and Pierre Mercier. We will work on the stomach, duodenum, lesser omentum, liver, small intestine, ascending and descending colon, duodenal-jejunal junction, ilio-cecal valve, gallbladder, bladder and kidneys. By the end of the weekend you will have a good repertoire of techniques for all the digestive tract and some of the urinary system. 
 
We always spend loads of time doing techniques and will have plenty of assistants to help out, to ensure a high level of hands on tuition. It is a relaxed and fun environment and you will take away a lot of new or revised techniques.
