Críticas:

Can you recommend a book that I should read before I start? It is a question I am often asked by would-be students on the cusp of the College of Osteopaths degree course in osteopathy. A difficult one to answer. The book that most new entrants crave is entitled How to be an Osteopath . It is packed with easy to read chapters and images explaining each of the techniques in the osteopath s toolkit: step by step guidance to competency. This book does not exist. Neither does the DVD. In Robert Lever s words to his students I cannot teach you how to do osteopathy...but what I will try to do is plant enough seeds of thought and orientation that the skills, attitudes and approach will begin to develop in you such that you can make the craft your own.... As Lever wryly notes, the more mature and patient students can accept this, the others fume with frustration. Although relatively slim, the Lever opus At the Still Point of the Turning World was 40 years in the making. The design on the front cover evokes the iconic prism and rainbow emblem of Pink Floyd Dark Side of the Moon, and reminds us that when this album was released in 1973, a young Robert Lever was just setting out in his osteopathic career. That it took the author so long to make sense of osteopathy might give a clue to the book s scope and depth. Challenging concepts are swiftly unpacked one after the other and deftly fitted together into a 3D matrix: holism, reciprocity, quantum theory, tensegrity, placebo, ritual, chaos, paradox, the intelligent fulcrum.....There is certainly the sense of a turning world: it is like watching a scrambled Rubik cube being snapped into order at full pelt. To attempt it in a single sitting could be akin to unwittingly harnessing oneself into a seat on Smiler at Alton Towers. A rush of intensity. One could imagine the uninitiated reader stepping off at the end feeling unsteady and slightly unwell. This book should be right at the top of the reading list for any aspiring osteopath. --Elizabeth Elander, Head of Programme Operations, College of Osteopaths

This is a unique text. It contains a remarkable mix. The scientific perspectives have probably never [before] been gathered together in one place. This is priceless, and makes the book essential reading for the intelligent osteopath. --Harold S Klug DO, Osteopathy practitioner, London, UK.

This book is long overdue and is a contribution to osteopathic thought and philosophy which has never before been so eloquently stated. --Gerald Lamb BSc(Lond) DO, Osteopathy Practitioner, London, UK and International Lecturer.

Reseña del editor:

The healing arts involve a complex range of skills which each practitioner draws together in a unique way. These skills, attitudes and perspectives complement the scientific basis underpinning each discipline to create the wisdom and artistry of any therapeutic approach.The practice of osteopathy is no exception. It involves a growing field of scientific knowledge in physics and biology that couples with an extraordinary range of human qualities to give the work depth, as well as relevance, and which can be tailored to the individual patient holistically and with compassion.At the Still Point of the Turning World examines and explores both the art and the science of osteopathy through the eyes and approach of a devoted teacher and practitioner. The true value of holism, vitalism and osteopathic principles are discussed as part of the approach that each practitioner brings to the patient/practitioner relationship.
