The IAO® was founded in 1987 by Michel Janssens († 1995), Grégoire Lason and Luc Peeters. In the same year, the first training courses were started in Belgium, the Netherlands and Germany. Over the years, the IAO® has grown into the largest academy of osteopathy in Europe. The IAO® has a rich history:
We want to train our students to be safe, competent and independent osteopaths. That is why we offer modern courses that meet the highest possible academic standards. We attach great importance to good scientific evidence (Evidence Based Practice). Our students are expected to always act from a broad scientific knowledge.
