NAO has World Class Professors such as Professor Abazar Habibinia

Intercontinental Wrestling Champion; WWE Tag Team Champion; United States Wrestling Champion & WWE superstar Santino Marella thanking National Academy of Osteopathy professor Abazar Habibinia

NAO faculty are world class and we are proud of them.

NAO students learn more than osteopathy

Along with clinical sciences, osteopathy skills and business management principles, I also want my students to be well versed in life improvement skills. I spent a good portion of my lectures on self improvement topics. Your thoughts make your reality. Improving your brain improves your thoughts and brings you closer to achieving your goals. It takes five minutes a day of meditation to improve your brain, decrease stress, improve health, and increase your focus and creativity. To make it even more effective do the meditation outside in nature. Nature is the key to creativity. And creativity is a key to success.

Can osteopathy be learned online?

Can osteopathy be learned online?

Yes. There is no difference between online and campus based education. In some ways the online education is even superior to the campus based because students have the ability to pause the lectures and watch any techniques over and over again. Many successful manual osteopaths are practicing around the world who studied osteopathy through an online on-demand program. 

The professions of osteopathy, chiropractic, athletic therapy, massage therapy, physiotherapy and even medicine and dentistry have offered at one time or another correspondence courses. With the technology NAO uses students feel they are sitting in a classroom watching the lectures. They have also the ability to contact NAO at any time and ask any academic questions they may have. 

Some universities in United Kingdom have started offering medical specialty courses such as orthopedic surgery to Medical Doctors through online programs, and some universities in the USA offer masters program in nursing through online lectures. As technology advances delivering high quality videos become easier and permits students worldwide to watch the lectures easily and comfortably. And more universities are embracing the online teaching as it eliminates the need for campus attendance and enables education to be spread internationally.

Dr Pourgol Develops Osteopathy Technique

Osteopathic Sports Energy Technique (SET) developed by Dr Shawn Pourgol, a professor of National Academy of Osteopathy, is a form of advanced osteopathic technique designed to improve athletic performance by increasing speed. This is achieved by working on the fast twitch type IIb skeletal muscle fibres.
Athletes can achieve dramatic increase in speed often after the first session. They can run, kick, jump or punch faster often after doing the first set of S.E.T. techniques.

Muscle tissue consists of fibres (cells) that are highly specialized for the active generation of force for contraction. Because of this characteristic, muscle tissue provides motion, maintenance of posture, and heat production. Based on certain structural and functional characteristics, muscle tissue is classified into three types: cardiac, smooth and skeletal. Based on various structural and functional characteristics, skeletal muscle fibres are classified into three types: Type I fibres, Type II b fibres and type II a fibres.

Type IIb fibres, also called fast twitch or fast glycolytic fibres; contain a low content of myoglobin, relatively few mitochondria, relatively few blood capillaries and large amounts glycogen. Type II b fibres are white, geared to generate ATP by anaerobic metabolic processes, not able to supply skeletal muscle fibres continuously with sufficient ATP, fatigue easily, split ATP at a fast rate and have a fast contraction velocity. Generally people are born with an average of 50% slow and 50% fast twitch fibres. Sprinters with proper training change this ratio to 80% fast twitch fibres in the leg muscles while marathon runners change the ratio with advanced training to 80% slow twitch fibres in the lower limbs muscles.

Because fast twitch fibers use anaerobic metabolism to create fuel, they are much better at generating short bursts of strength and speed than slow muscles. However, they fatigue more quickly. Fast twitch fibers generally produce the same amount of force per contraction as slow muscles, but they get their name because they are able to fire more rapidly. Having more fast twitch fibers can be an asset to athletes since they need to quickly generate a lot of force.

Words from Dr Pourgol.....

When your passion becomes your profession, success follows.

왜 정골요법을 공부해야 할까요?

정골요법은 건강관리입니다. 다른 어느 직업도 이런 기쁨을 주지는 못합니다. 사람들에게 통증을 없애주는것은 최고의 느낌입니다.

정골요법은 세계에서 가장 빠르게 성장하는 건강관리 관련 직업입니다.

정골요법은 아래 쪽 허리 통증 환자들에게 최선의 선택입니다. ( 척추 교정 지압법, 마사지, 물리치료, 침술 과 약물 치료와 비교하여도 그렇습니다. )

많은 연구도 정골요법은 허리 통증에 가장 효과적인 치료법이라는 것을 보여 주고 있습니다.

정골요법은 근육, 뼈, 관절 및 신경 질환에 부드럽고, 고통이 없고, 안전하며, 검증되었고 매우 효과적인 치료입니다.

실업률도 제로입니다. 정골요법사는 취직이 잘 됩니다.

정골요법사는 평균 일년에 90000 달러를 범니다.

정골요법사는 재활 클리닉, 의료기관, 헬스 클럽, 스파 등에서 시간당 30달러로 일하기 시작합니다.

갖 졸업한 정골요법사는 캐나다, 미국, 유럽, 아시아, 아프리카 및 호주를 포함한 세계 어디에서나 자신의 클리닉을 개업 할 수 있습니다.

환자들은 정골요법 치료를 좋아합니다. 캐나다 온타리오에 있는 리치몬드 힐에서는 정골요법사를 보기위해 2달을 기다려야 합니다. 이란에서는 6개월을 기다려 치료를 받습니다.

척추 교정 지압사가 되는데 7년, 마사지치료사가 되는데는 2년, 그리고 물리 치료사가 되는데는 6년이 걸리는데 비교하여, 정골요법사는 4개월이면 되지만 수입은 똑같습니다.

Words from Dr S. Pourgol

I have learned that everyone wants to reach the top to find happiness, without knowing that the real happiness is in every moment of the journey in reaching the peak.

Dr Shahin Pourgol
NAO president

Words from Dr Shawn Pourgol

My personal interpretation of the foundation of osteopathic philosophy is that structure governs function. Move the structure & you will change function. This in my opinion is the main component of osteopathy and how osteopathy is found to be so effective in treating disorders of mechanical origin such as posterior facet syndrome, the most common cause of low back pain.

Osteopathy Graduate Hired at $50/hour


National Academy of Osteopathy wishes to congratulate NAO graduate, Mr S. Hussein for being hired as a manual osteopath by a rehabilitation clinic in Richmond Hill, Ontario, Canada at a salary of $50 per hour.

This is the second time an NAO graduate lands a job at $50 per hour. At the time when chiropractors in Toronto, with 7 years of education are hired at $30 to $40 per hour, or massage therapists with 2 years of education are hired at $20 to $25 per hour, being hired at $50 per hour after studying 4 months is quite an achievement.

Join NAO, become a manual osteopath & secure your future.

NAO Graduated Osteopath Hired at $55 per hour


After congratulating the NAO graduate Mr S. Hussein for landing a job at a rehab clinic at $50 per hour in Richmond Hill (the 2nd NAO graduate to do so), we were just informed by another NAO graduate that he is receiving $55 per hour as a manual osteopath in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. This is the highest salary we know of any of our graduates. If anyone is hired with a salary more than this please let us know.

We congratulate Mr F. Azevedo for becoming the NAO graduate with the highest salary & being the best paid NAO graduated manual osteopath.

This is just amazing. Making $55 per hour after 4 months of study is a great achievement. There simply is not another profession that offers such high rewards in such short time. It takes 7 years to become a chiropractor, 4 years to become a physiotherapist & 2 years to become a massage therapist. And their starting salary for a new graduate ranges from $20 to $40 per hour while manual osteopaths are hired at $30 per hour on average.

We are honored to help people become productive members of the society. And we continue to provide you with unique, innovative & affordable osteopathic education.

NAO graduates successful manual osteopath!

Thank you Dr. Shahin Pourgol for being a constant inspiration in my life. In such a short time under your tutelage the cobwebs have been taken off my life, and success continues to follow me. Reformulation of thought through simplicity and application.

Words from Dr Pourgol

People generally connect their results to the amount of time they spend achieving them. The more time they spend, the greater the result they think. They assume the relationship between time and result is a linear one. By changing this perspective & looking at it as
an exponential relationship, you are introduced to a world of new possibilities where you can get great results in no time at all.

Dr Shahin Pourgol
