Hello All,

I was curious if anyone had opinions about the Osteopathic Health and Wellness Institute.

http://www.ohwi.org/1.htm

It seems to basically be osteopathic education exclusively focused on OMM without the rest of the med school curriculum. Obviously, this is not the first time osteopathic techniques have been pulled out and presented to wider audiences - (ie. Upledger and craniosacral), but this is the first time I have seen techniques presented as "the art and science of osteopathy" outside of a 4 year DO school.

Personally, I have mixed feelings about it, but my first response is that this is one more step toward the splitting of OMM from modern DO practice. I'm sure some would be happy to see OMM go, while others (myself included) are looking forward to someday incorporating it with other therapies.

Anybody have any thoughts on the OHWI program?
