What is osteopathy?

Andrew Taylor Still, MD.
Founder of Osteopathy


"Osteopathy is a science which consists of such exact exhaustive and verifiable knowledge of the structure and functions of the human mechanism, anatomy and physiology & psychology including the chemistry and physics of its known elements as is made discernable certain organic laws and resources within the body itself by which nature under scientific treatment peculiar to osteopathic practice apart from all ordinary methods of extraneous, artificial & medicinal stimulation and in harmonious accord with its own mechanical principles, molecular activities and metabolic processes may recover from displacements, derangements, disorganizations and consequent diseases and regain its normal equilibrium of form and function in health and strength."

The Health does not end at death…the body is the second placenta    – A. T. Still MD, DO, paraphrased

When every part of the machine is correctly adjusted and in perfect harmony, health will  hold dominion over the human organism by laws as natural and immutable as the laws of gravity.  — A. T. Still MD, DO
