The Osteopathy was unveiled during the eighteenth century by the American Dr. Andrew Taylor Still (1828-1917), who developed a new global medical system, confronted with the medicine practiced in those days and dissatisfaction with the exaggerated prescription medications, the practice of bloodletting and other medical methods.

From the hand of JM Littlejohn, the Osteopathy was also introduced in Europe, so the first school in Europe was founded in 1917 in England: The British School of Osteopathy. By 1957 he founded the “École Française d’Osteopathie” under the direction of Paul Geny, which later, for reasons of state repression was moved to England in 1960, becoming the “European School of Osteopathy” in Maidstone. From the 80, the Osteopathy has resulted gaining presence and visibility in Europe, based several institutes for training and continuing education.
