After practicing as a physiotherapist from 1965 to 1983, Alain Auberville qualified as an osteopath in 1984. He then went on to complete his professional development by studying naturopathy and Chinese medicine. He was involved in founding the osteopathy schools Eurostéo and InSO-Aix-en-Provence, where he taught the visceral approach to osteopathy. He now practices at Pélissanne, in the south of France.
Dr Auberville has developed his embryology-based motility concept over the last 30 years by experimenting and clinically validating his hypothesis. He has extended the concept for all the structures and the visceral, neurologic and musculoskeletal systems of the body. He has been teaching this concept and its applications for more than 15 years to students of the schools he co-founded in France as well as to those attending courses at the Centre Ostéopathique du Québec, Canada. He teaches postgraduate courses, notably in France, Italy and Russia.
