About Us

Making Education Accessible and Affordable

The most important thing to know about us is what it is that we stand for. We believe passionately in the sharing of knowledge and we're all about playing our part to make that happen.

We also believe that continued education should be about exactly that - education - and not just an exercise to meet regulatory requirements.

It's generally true that attending live workshops and seminars is the best way for manual therapists to learn new techniques and improve their knowledge. The reality however, is that live training is simply too expensive and inaccessible for most therapists.

So we focus our resources on sourcing, creating and providing the best home study materials available, from the world's leading practitioners. 

Our commitment to you, is that every home study course that we release is designed to be practical, affordable, and immediately beneficial!

Our Mission

The internet and social media allows for greater sharing of information than ever before. This means greater sharing of ideas and knowledge between therapists around the world, and allows consumers to become better informed than ever about the options available for their healthcare.

We are committed to providing freely available information from the best sources and the most recent research studies to enable therapists to keep up to date with the latest concepts in manual therapy, and to help consumers make better informed choices when it comes to what matters most to them .... feeling well!
