Letter from a Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Master

A letter we received today from a graduate of NAO in Vancouver:

I just wanted to write this testimonial to say thank you to Dr. Pourgol, and everyone at The National Academy of Osteopathy. Being one of the first graduates from BC in 2012, I have seen the tremendous growth of osteopathy thanks to his efforts. The one key lesson that I always remembered from Dr. Pourgol is how to build a business.

With this in entrepreneurial spirit in mind, I used my credentials from NAO to open doors outside of a traditional practice such as professional speaking, author, and now information products. His guidance helped me think outside of the box for business this is missing from other osteopathy programs out there. For this, I will always thankful for having the opportunity to study at NAO.

Sincerely,

Professor Raz Chan, BA, DOMP
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Black Belt, Bestselling Author & Speaker

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.
