Description

Preface

Shortly before his death on 9th February 2007, John Wernham had selected a number of his recent lectures to make up Volume III of his “Lectures on Osteopathy.”

In those last years of his life, he had been very prolific in his writing and lecturing both in the UK and abroad, some of which is recorded in the “Lectures on Osteopathy” series.

I would like to quote from the Introduction to Volume I in which John Wernham wrote:

“Classical Osteopathy has its foundation in the work of our Founders, supported by a hundred years of research and clinical evidence, and from which there is no reason to deviate.  We continue to look forward with our contribution to the art of healing intact and well-informed for the future generations of osteopathic practitioners.”

It is with pleasure and pride that The John Wernham College of Classical Osteopathy presents this current Volume in John Wernham’s memory.
