European Academy of Traditional Osteopathy (EATO)

Belgium – Netherlands

We like to welcome you on our website of the European Academy of Traditional Osteopathy EATO BNL.

EATO BNL is organised by two enthousiast osteopaths and provides post-graduated courses in osteopathy. Our mission is to spread the osteopathic principles as it was taught by Dr. Still. By lecturing theoretical concepts, hands on practical exercises in class and in clinics, students can explore the principles and deepen their awareness and sensing skills.

EATO BNL guarantees high level courses by inviting excellent international teachers, extra-ordinary accommodation in the quiet of nature with time for reflection and integration and a transparent communication with their students. In addition, EATO BNL is recognised by the Flemish government whereby Flemish self-employees can have up to 30% of the course fee subsided. For more information, see
