Osteopaths: The Philosophy, The Spirit and The Art of Osteopathy
by Anne Canarelli, osteopath D.O. (Qc) and Laurent & Lucas Theillet (photographers)
All the osteopaths featured in this book are recognised for their personal contribution to the profession. They have introduced osteopathy into their respective countries and have either created or led the schools. They invented techniques or treatment methodologies, and have written major works. They have also taught in several countries and it is therefore highly probable that you will have encountered many of these highly-respected osteopaths either in person or by repute.
We asked them how they came to osteopathy, what they find the most exciting thing in osteopathy, and also to tell us a significant anecdote for them and for osteopathy, to give us an advice and what they would like to leave behin them, in legacy. And their answers have been always eloquent, often surprising, and occasionally moving. They spoke to us about themselves; their hopes, their approaches – both osteopathic and human, their lives as men and women of this earth and we were more than charmed. We were enlightened by what they had to say.
They have passed on a heritage: the authenticity of the purest osteopathic tradition and the art of osteopathy. A portrait of osteopathy’s current reality emerges from this mosaic of portraits. And of course, its clinical philosophy and its original spirit as described by its founder, Andrew Taylor Still, D.O.
By Anne Canarelli, D.O. (Quebec) graduated from the Collège d’Études Ostéopathiques in Montreal, Canada in 2011, she was awarded the A.T. Still thesis prize for her dissertation: Vitality, modes of expression and mechanisms of production, which explored the motor origins of the Primary Respiratory Mechanism (PRM).
