Product Description


A comprehensive text and reference book for osteopaths, Osteopathic Energetics covers the underlying principles of osteopathic palpation from a biodynamic and morphodynamic perspective and their application in the cranial and the spinal cord. It emphasises the importance of considering the patient’s inner consciousness as well as their physical self, discusses epigenetic influences and explores new insights into the role played by biological rhythms. It views osteopathy with respect to the development of paradigms within the healing arts as well as acknowledging the importance of conceptual foundations to practice. The resulting implications for therapeutic interaction, the principles of diagnosis and treatment form the core of the book and these fundamental principles are then applied specifically to the cranial sphere primarily focusing on the brain itself. The original German version of this book has been very successful and is now in its second edition. This translation makes this informative and authoritative book accessible to an English speaking audience. Liem has gathered a highly qualified team of internationally acclaimed teachers and practitioners to bring their insight, principles and approaches to practice.
