Interface: Mechanisms of Spirit in Osteopathy
R. Paul Lee, D.O.
See Reviews Below
At the core of Dr. A. T. Still’s 19th-century osteopathic philosophy is the understanding that the living being is an inseparable unit comprising body, mind, and spirit. Interface illuminates this feature of Still’s philosophy and further clarifies his ideas using those of other great thinkers from ancient and modern times. The book then synthesizes current scientific understanding to explain the mechanisms by which body, mind, and spirit interconnect, forming a model for osteopathy’s approach to healing.
