For know the school is active only in Italy, while in the rest of Europe we teach singul seminars. We are looking forward to develop the school throw out the rest of Europe as well.  The technique do to its’ peculiarity like: The utilization of specific diagnostic points, the extraordinary facility of execution, the immediate response on the patient, the long lasting therapeutic effect and the absolute a-traumacity of the technique. SCS is considered by the American Osteopathic Association (AOA) the most advanced and innovative manual technique in osteopathic medicine. It’s applicability in fact is not directed to the musculoskeletal dysfunction itself, but the neurologic reprogramming of the circuit α-γ and similar, which maintains the dysfunction. This approach permits the immediate and lasting correction of the erroneous neurological outflow at the base of the innerved structure.
