The Functional and Integrative Manual Medicine Society

A voluntary self-regulatory body for practitioners using osteopathic concepts and philosophy in their healthcare practice.
 
FAIMMS is a body for independent practitioners who do not use the title ‘Osteopath’ but who wish to use osteopathic philosophy, concepts and approaches in patient care, as well as functional and integrative manual medicine dynamics. 

Education

We aim to support the community of independent practitioners using osteopathic concepts of care, as well as functional and integrative manual medicine approaches by discussing and establishing standards, competencies and clinical guidelines which engage with osteopathic concepts framed in a sound evidence informed approach.

Healthcare Practice

As a voluntary self regulatory body we seek to establish standards for professional life and protection of the public that support the practice of osteopathic philosophy in healthcare. Members no longer use the title 'Osteopath' and instead practice as independent healthcare professionals - as functional and integrative manual medicine practitioners. They may use a variety of similar titles to identify their healthcare practice.

community

The community of practice FAIMMS provides a voluntary regulatory body for is separate to statutory regulated communities of osteopaths. Many independent and osteopathic practitioners though explore the application of osteopathic approaches to healthcare and so members of FAIMMS are part of this wider community of healthcare practitioners sharing osteopathic concepts of care, outside the boundaries of statutory regulated practice of 'osteopaths'.

Our Focus

Supporting the exploration and development of healthcare based on osteopathic philosophy and concepts.  We wish to support independent practitioners whose primary healthcare mode of practice is hands on care, and who apply a range of integrative, functional, manual and osteopathic approaches to healthcare practice.
 
We recognise that practitioners, and the public are best supported by having a voluntary self regulating body.  The Functional and Integrative Manual Medicine Institute has been established for this purpose.
 
The FAIMMS is part of the Society for Osteopathic Healthcare C.I.C.
 
The Society is a not for profit Community Interest Company, Limited by Guarantee.
