    Provides an important contribution to the ongoing debate about the scope and approach of osteopathy (mechanistic vs psychological/spiritual). Looks at the dichotomy between the spirit and the science within osteopathy. Argues that the most effective care is given when a skilled practitioner combines technical skill with empathy, compassion and a still, listening attitude. Suggests that while hard research and clinical evidence provide important underpinning it is the human qualities of wisdom and compassion which can develop osteopathy into an art. Based on over 40 years' experience as a dedicated practitioner and a gifted teacher. At a time when the debate is more open and lively than ever this book is very timely.
