Thoughts on osteopathic diagnosis and treatment by Robert LEVER

The art of osteopathy has always been based on a body of anatomical and physiological theory and data but it has recently been expanded in exciting ways involving contemporary thinking in physics and biology that tell us more about disease causation and tissue function. This book brings these two fields of thinking together.

The author is now recognised as deep thinker in the field of osteopathy and has developed an international following since the publication of his first book At the Still Point. He puts into clear and understandable prose the ideas and feelings that many osteopaths experience but find difficult to express.

The application of concept, theory and, above all, principle, is the real challenge and it is by addressing these with penetration and relevance that the book allows the practitioner to ‘find the health’ rather than merely attempting to confront disease.

Robert Lever BA DO is a highly-skilled and well-respected practising osteopath with over 40 years’ of experience in providing holistic and compassionate care.
