Osteopathy deserves higher worldwide public recognition. Osteopaths can be the biggest advocates for building osteopathy’s reputation. We believe that equipping osteopaths with business and marketing knowledge is the key to achieving higher status, acceptance and awareness of our profession.
In every facet of the Osteohustle makeup, we ask ourselves: is this first and foremost in the interests of osteopaths? Our success is totally determined by the success of the osteopaths who use our take our courses and work with us to turn their clinic around. Your needs are priority number one, always.
Regardless of who you are, your age, race, gender, where you call home, if you’re an osteopath, we’re doing this for you. We don’t care how you practise osteopathy or which school you graduated from; we treat everyone with total respect and offer our undivided attention. The same goes for our business and marketing courses – 100% ethical, ASA and AHPRA safe.
Your dream clinic choices are limitless. We’ve helped osteopaths build multidisciplinary clinics and practices with a yoga pilates studio, personal training gym and even a wedding venue! No matter how you envision your dream clinic, we’re here to make it a reality.
When I graduated, I dreamt of endless possibilities for my perfect osteopathic clinic. However, I realised that I’d spent 4 years learning how to be an osteopath but had no idea how to run a business and get new patients through the door. I didn’t know where to start and felt scared to invest time and money into marketing methods without knowing if they’d work, taking risks and failing.
Clinic building knowledge and getting direction from someone who understood osteopathy was priority number one. While working as an associate, I felt ready to control my career to become the local go-to osteopath without stepping on anyone’s toes.
If you’ve got big clinic dreams but don’t know where to turn to make them happen, Osteohustle is for you.

Alan has always loved business. But it was highlighted while in his second year at Swansea University while attending an Osteopathy business lecture. Reading as much of the module’s reading list as possible. While researching for his business essay, Alan searched for some marketing resources that catered specifically for Osteopaths, but failed to find anything that resonated with him. After graduating from Swansea University in 2017, he tried again and found the same result – not much.
After continuing to talk to hundreds of Osteopaths all over the world and the nomination for the iO Practice of the Year 2019, Alan created Osteohustle.
Now an international speaker to Osteopathic institutions and Universities, Alan is determined to bring the profession closer together to get Osteopathy on the map in the public eye, exactly where it deserves to be.
Andrew’s involvement in healthcare began back in 2008 when he trained as a personal trainer, sports massage therapist, and rehab coach. Whilst he appreciated helping keep his clients fit and healthy, he found he had a specific interest in helping those recovering from injury and providing support. Deciding to further his knowledge in this field, he decided to become an osteopath due to the professions all-encompassing approach to health.
In 2016, Andrew qualified from the British School of Osteopathy. He created his own clinic At Health and worked as head osteopath at Bodylogics, where his role was to help mentor and build the list of the other osteopaths on board at the clinic. Whilst both clinics were based in London, At Health in central London and Bodylogics in the suburbs, he was surprised at how different the marketing strategies needed to be, purely because of their location. Not afraid to put in the graft, Andrew did everything from Groupon to speaking with other osteopaths and colleagues to work out the fastest ways to grow his patient list. Through this, Andrew managed to treat over 1000 patients in his opening year of At Health and increase the osteopathic patient list at Bodylogics.
In 2019, running his own business, deal with an Ankylosing Spondylitis diagnosis, having to move home and dealing with the death of his mother meant that Andrew eventually suffered from burnout. He had the drive to work and implement lots of ideas but lacked the energy to do it all. He joined up with Alan to work out where best he needed to focus his energy so that it was spent in the most efficient way possible.
During the Covid-19 pandemic, Andrew was keen to make sure other osteopaths did not experience the same burnout that he faced. Part of this involved being part of David Cohenschurz-Schmidt’s team, who won the Institute of Osteopathy’s Community of Practice award in 2020. The award was for helping musculoskeletal professionals deliver high-quality virtual consultations for their patients. This meant that even whilst osteopaths closed their practices during the pandemic, they could continue working and provide support for their patients during an unprecedented time.
