I am a registered manual osteopath. I was born in Iran in 1966. In 1986 I moved to Canada spending 32 years in Toronto (Ontario, Canada). In 2018 I moved to Panama to help set up the Spanish language National University of Medical Sciences (Panama). However I fell in love with the country and decided to move there permanently. I received permanent residency status from Panamanian government in 2018.


I am founder, president and one of the professors of the National Academy of Osteopathy (Canada) since 2010, National University of Medical Sciences (Spain) since 2012, National University of Medical Sciences (USA) since 2016, National University of Medical Sciences (Panama) since 2018, and California Health University (Los Angeles) since 2023. I am also founder of the non-profit, charity based Pourgol Osteopathy Chronic Pain Hospital in Panama and the Pourgol Osteopathy Chronic Pain Research Center in Spain (since 2023).

I am an adopted tribal member of the Southern Cherokee Nation & the Red Fire People and a past Minister of Education for this Nation.

We are the largest provider of manual osteopathic education in the world with alumni in 72 countries. Most manual osteopaths in Canada and the United States and many other countries are my students.

In 2017 I founded the nonprofit company, Osteopathy Chronic Pain Clinics of Canada (www.osteopathypainclinics.com). OCPCC has now over 378 clinics in 34 countries (Canada, USA, Spain, France, South Korea, Thailand, Czech Republic, Greece, Singapore, Malaysia, India, Morocco, Namibia, Bermuda, Trinidad & Tobago, Israel, Iran, etc.). All manual osteopaths working for OCPCC are chronic pain specialists who have taken postgraduate fellowship program in chronic pain management at National Academy of Osteopathy (Canada). Only my students are permitted to work for OCPCC.

In 1989 I attended the Eastern High School of Commerce in Toronto and became Ontario and Toronto scholar of the same year. Later on, in I continued my predoctoral education at Ryerson University in Applied Chemistry and Biology and managed to obtain the highest academic average of 97% (A+) between 11,000 university students, for which I was rewarded with the Merit Award, from Honorable David Peterson, the premier of Ontario. Subsequently, I was accepted to the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College (CMCC) where I finished the Doctor of Chiropractic (DC) Degree program in 1995 (I resigned as a chiropractor on March 06, 2014 to focus exclusively on providing osteopathic education).

My osteopathic education includes a number of postgraduate certificate and continuing education programs including a diploma in osteopathic manual practice, a bachelor of science in osteopathy, a Doctor of Osteopathy, and a PhD in Osteopathic Clinical Rehabilitation - PhD.

In 2011 I founded June 22nd as the World Osteopathy Day. Now for the first time in over 140 years osteopathy has a day of its own. In November 2014 Canada Post published a postal stamp celebrating the World Osteopathy Day.

If you are looking to change your career, I highly recommend you to study manual osteopathy. It is an amazing profession that does wonders treating chronic pain. My osteopathy students make $150,000 per year on average which is $60,000 more than what other manual osteopaths make in Canada. This is because I teach them all I know in over 250 business management lectures and also their ability in treating chronic pain as we heavily focus on chronic pain management.

Join us, study osteopathy and secure your future.
