The osteopathic association of South Africa (OASA) is the body representing the interests of osteopaths, osteopathy as a profession and consumer rights to access osteopathic services.
OASA was founded over 40 years ago and today represents osteopaths across South Africa. The core external focus of the association is raising awareness for osteopathy, lobbying, policy development and clinical quality. Its internal focus for members includes a wide array of information and advice, clinical excellence and guidelines, continuing professional development, healthcare business and support.
All osteopaths in South Africa are registered with the Allied Health Professions Council.
