Rachel E. Brooks, M.D.
Rachel E. Brooks, M.D. is the editor of the Stillness Press books: Life in Motion, The Stillness of Life, and Treating Visceral Dysfunction. Her initial editorial effort was to assist Anne Wales, D.O. in the editing of Teachings in the Science of Osteopathy by William G. Sutherland, D.O. and she helped edit the second edition of Sutherland’s Contributions of Thought.
Dr. Brooks’ dedication to osteopathy began when she met Dr. Rollin E. Becker in 1975, just before she entered the University of Michigan Medical School. That first meeting with Dr. Becker inspired her to pursue the study and practice of osteopathy.
After completing a residency in physical medicine and rehabilitation in 1982, she began her private practice in osteopathy the following year. She was a member of the board of trustees of the Sutherland Cranial Teaching Foundation from 1988 through 2004. Over the years, she has continued her work of teaching courses in cranial osteopathy and undertaking publication projects.
Dr. Brooks currently is in private practice in Portland, Oregon.
