Since 1995 after finishing CSMT (Chicago school of massage therapy) I was always looking for continuing education programs that will improve my skills in manual therapy.
By 1996 I had completed several programs but in just about all of them there was one fundamental problem, too much time was spend to talking about anatomy and not enough time about about techniques. Additionally some of the teachers use only one technique in their practice. I had a problem with it.
There are a lot of factors involved in determining which school is right for you, but if you like to be comfortable and would like to learn many Osteopathic manual techniques and somatic evaluation, you need teachers and a school that will teach you full-circle. I advise you to visit the O-C-O. It was very interesting, I learned much and there are plenty of students from O-C-O who are willing to share their opinions and similar successes.
Good luck! Michael Pys Dipl. OMT, Chicago, Illinois
As a CRNA (Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist) practicing full time pain management for acute, chronic and cancer-related pain, I have advanced practice status and am able to order a variety of diagnostic tests, prescribe medications and perform a variety of therapeutic injections.
I had been searching for an Osteopathic educational program that would help me develop, as a clinician, a true Osteopathic perspective while training me in Osteopathic techniques.
I found the program through the Osteopathic College of Ontario leading to a diploma in Osteopathic manipulative theory and practice to be an ideal program for accomplishing these goals.
This is an ideal pathway for medical physicians, physical therapists, advanced practice nurses, and advanced massage therapists to acquire a clinical framework and skills in classical Osteopathic holistic patient care. Jeremiah Loch, CRNA, PhD, DO (Can), DAAPM, Sycamore, Illinois
As a newly qualified Osteopath I found it difficult to transfer the techniques offered in an educational setting into real-world treatment methodology which was meaningful to me.
Once I saw Dr. Sanet lecture I realized that he was a teacher who had the ability to transfer his knowledge, not by implication and analogy, but by an experiential approach. Now I felt I could develop confidence and trust in your own sensibilities and thus create a bridge between what I wanted to do in I mind and real-world treatments.
If we understand that Osteopathy is practiced by individuals and that each practices accordingly, then it will be understood that the Quantum Course is one unique individuals' methodology of treatment. The approach Steve gives is 'this is how I do it and this is why I do it this way'.
You then have an opportunity to try out those methods under his direct guidance so that you are taken on a journey through his years of experience in treating patients. Even if you have a portfolio of techniques already to hand, you will review those methods in a much more structured way so that theory and anatomy are combined effectively in practice. Energetic concepts of how meaning and intention might direct treatment are also explored with insight. Ancient theories are also drawn upon for new applications to treatment.
Whilst the uncertainty of treating patients is always present however many years you have in practice, the course helps you, with insight and humour, to develop a clear methodology for treating the patient which you can make your own. Marcia Hugall, Osteopath, London, England
I have taken numerous Continuing Education courses over the last 24 years and without a doubt Dr. Sanet has been the best teacher. Dr. Sanet makes learning FUN and every time I've taken a course by Dr. Sanet I've taken away a pearl of wisdom. These pearls are Dr. Sanet's treatment philosophies and you're immediately able to make an impact on patients with the most challenging situations.
As a private practice owner what sets me apart from my competition are the results I see when using Dr. Sanet's treatment philosophies. I have been so impressed with Dr. Sanet as a mentor and teacher that I hired him to train my entire staff. Michael P. Healy, Physical Therapist, East Providence, Rhode Island
I first met Dr. Sanet in 1999 when he was invited to Korea by KAOMT (Korean Academy of Orthopedic Manual Therapy). for a four day about Craniosacral therapy. That course change my career...a starting point for a great journey in my practice.
If you want to truly learn what Osteopathy is all about you need to learn from real Osteopath, Dr. Sanet. For ten years I have been practicing with the Dr. Sanet's techniques and and it has been a true blessing to me and to my patients.
Always grateful ... Dr. Sanet... My teacher... Haihoon Choi, Physical Therapist, Seoul, Korea
The Osteopathy, Craniosacral Therapy and Manipulative Therapy Education Quantums presented by Dr. Steve Sanet in 2005-2007 presented an integrated method for both the diagnosis and treatment of somatic and visceral problems manifesting in the human body. Demonstration of cases of Osteopathic concepts integrated into the management of some commonly encountered conditions were demonstrated throughout the quantums.
The Osteopathic approach to diagnosis and treatment was emphasized on each quantum.
The combination of acquired knowledge and clinical experience by Dr. Sanet over the years treating patients has evolved into a unique philosophy apply during each quantum. His body of knowledge produces a concrete system of evaluation and treatment acceptable to the medical field so that each clinician will become more effective treating their own patients and helping people to restore its baseline homeostasis.

I found OCO's learning environment perfect for me. The smaller class size allowed much more personalized attention to ensure that I was performing the techniques properly. I am currently using Osteopathy daily and have found success with clients for whom massage therapy just wasn't able to help. I would recommend the program to anyone looking to advance their practice.Denis Lariviere RMT, DO, St Marys, ON
I embarked on the OCO training to understand osteopathy more fully as a key root of my Ortho-Bionomy practice. The small classes and high teacher/ student ratio allowed lots of individual attention and hands on practice with a variety of instructors. The program format respected the background and training I already had after 17 years as a practitioner. It allowed me to continue my practice and teaching at the same time as I learned skills that enhance my ability to help my clients and help me to understand the scientific underpinnings for the work. I enjoyed learning.Judith Miller, Registered Advanced Ortho-Bionomy� Advanced Practitioner and Advanced Instructor
