“A Tale to Tell” – working in West End Musical Theatre with Fabi Waisbort & Osteopathic Practice Life with Coronavirus

November 20 @ 10:30 am - 5:30 pm

Toynbee Studios, 28 Commercial Street LONDON E1 6AB

Saturday 20th November (10.30 -17.30)

Fabi Waisbort trained as a classical dancer, Pilates instructor and massage therapist before he became an Osteopath.

Over the last 30 years Fabi has dedicated his clinic to the performing arts, looking after many West End shows, dance companies and dance schools.

In the second half of the day we will have two open discussion sessions on how coronavirus has affected your practice and treatment approach. We envisage this as a ‘safe space’ to discuss the issues that have arisen: how are you managing your practice, are you adapting your treatments, are you dealing with instances of ‘long COVID’? What have been the challenges and potential benefits of the current situation. Feel free to share your thoughts in a supportive environment so that we can learn from each other. In this instance the issues shared don’t need to be only be related to any performing arts patients that you might see. The discussions will potentially engage CPD areas of communication & consent, safety in practice and professionalism.

The study day will amount to 6 hours of CPD covering all 4 areas of the Osteopathic Practice Standards. Please note that we will not be providing refreshments/food but there are plenty of local cafes including the onsite: Arts Bar & Cafe.

To register please email by 5pm on Monday 15th November – £50 for OPACA members £75 non members BACS. BACS remittances to:

performing artists and aims to provide a forum for sharing new ideas and offering mutual support.
