Registered nurse writes about NAO

Registered nurse & manual osteopath Candace Terry, RN, DOMP writes about why she chose National Academy of Osteopathy:

After twenty-two years of nursing, I was at a point in my career that I needed a change. I met a Manual Osteopath during a training session for concussion analysis and treatment. I was very interested and started to look up what Manual Osteopathy was and quickly discovered that manual osteopathy coincided with my beliefs of treating a person as a whole.

So I started to look into the different schools that offered manual osteopathy. Finally deciding on NAO (National Academy of Osteopathy) and I am so happy I did. I first selected NAO because it allowed me to do full time courses online. It also had very good reviews from past students, even students that had attended other Manual Osteopathy schools then went to NAO.

When I started, the passion for manual osteopathy Dr. Pourgol conveyed when he was teaching made it feel like he was right in the room with you. His love for Manual Osteopathy made me want to learn more and more. Then when I went to Toronto for the 2 week hands-on, seeing the team in-person made me feel like I was part of a special family. The love I have for my new profession just increased tenfold.

The business classes were above and beyond what I was expecting. There were many times I said “I wish I knew that before” or “Wow. That makes so much sense.” I even caught my husband hanging around when I was watching my classes and saying quietly “Hmm”, “Okay”, and “Yes”.

I am looking forward to doing the dual degree BSc (O) and DO (Spain).

Thank you.

NMOS approves NAO

We are happy to announce that after many months of investigation, the president of National Manual Osteopathic Society (based in Alberta, Canada) informed us that National Academy of Osteopathy has been approved as an accredited school by NMOS and therefore our graduates from all Canadian provinces can join it as it is a national association.

NMOS is a national osteopathic organization approved by many extended health plan insurers in all Canadian provinces.



Another successful manual osteopath

A letter from a National Academy of Osteopathy student in Uxbridge, Ontario:

Hey Dr. Pourgol;

………It’s been an incredible journey thus far practicing and building a business... My decision to study Osteopathy at NAO was one of the best! You have truly given me the power and ability to carve out my own path in life. The tools that I have acquired though your guidance has already changed the lives of many!!! I am forever thankful :)

I am ready to continue my education through NUMSS. I am contemplating between the DO or the DO/BSc (osteopathy) combo…….

Thanks so much!!
