Inner Peace Osteopathy

Happy 191st Birthday to Dr. Andrew Taylor Still! 🎈
We mark this occasion by sharing his insights into the healing power of osteopathy:

“Sickness is an effect caused by stoppage of some supply of fluid or quality of life.”

“The rule of the artery is absolute, universal, and must be unobstructed or disease will result.”

“We strike at the source of life and death when we go the lymphatics.”

“The cerebro-spinal fluid is one of the highest known elements that are contained in the body, and unless the brain furnishes this fluid in abundance, a disabled condition of the body will remain. He who is able to reason will see that this great river of life must be tapped and the withering field irrigated at once, or the harvest of health be forever lost.”

“Venous blood,..., should not be tolerated to remain long enough for stagnation, fermentation and inflammation, because when it is detained by any sort of ligation, pressure or constriction, it loses its vitality and is in a condition that allows it to set tip the process of decomposition. Thus we have the irritation caused by a venous congestion in the parts, which soon passes on to inflammation . . .”

“I know of no part of the body that equals the fascia as a hunting-ground. I believe that more rich golden thoughts will appear to the mind's eye as the study of the fascia is pursued than of any other division of the body.“
