Federazione Sindacale Italiana Osteopati – Fe.s.i.os


The Federazione Sindacale Italiana Osteopati (Fe.S.I.Os.), founded in early 2004, is a non-political and non-profit federation with no religious affiliation. Fe.S.I.Os was formed with the aim of offering a guaranteed, high professional standard, something that was not available in Italy due to the varying levels of osteopathic training. To fulfil this aim, Fe.S.I.Os members must have attained either a Bachelor of Science in Osteopathy, or a Masters in Osteopathy, either accredited from a university based in a country where Osteopathy is legally recognised as a primary healthcare profession.
The Fe.S.I.Os. has as its main objectives the representation and the protection Italian osteopaths, and to promote osteopathic medicine.
In Europe, Fe.S.I.Os. is a founding member of the European Osteopathic Union, then becoming a founding member of the Forum for Osteopathic Regulation in Europe, which then merged with the EFO to become the European Federation & Forum for Osteopathy.
While on the world stage, Fe.S.I.Os. is a proud founding member of the Osteopathic International Alliance.
