by Paul Chauffour, Eric Prat, Monique Bureau

Developed in the late ’70s by French osteopath Paul Chauffour, Mechanical Link is a gentle manual therapy that encourages the balance of tensions in the fascial system—that complex web of tissue that interconnects and affects all other body systems. It spreads throughout the body uninterrupted, providing physical stability while also allowing flexibility and mobility.
Based on the principle that traumatic stress affects the interconnecting tissues of the body by forming patterns of tension called lesions, Mechanical Link therapy has successfully treated fibromyalgia, migraines, asthma, and other conditions. Extremely popular in Europe, it is rapidly gaining adherents in North America. This book, complete with 44 black-and-white photographs and 20 color illustrations, is a comprehensive manual for diagnosing and treating patients.

by Walter Llewellyn McKone

This is the first textbook on osteopathic medicine to complement the dominant 'medical' model of education. Drawing from the achievements and ideas of the past as well as present-day practice, it provides an organic yet scientific approach that is uniquely osteopathic.
Using the work of its founder, Dr Andrew Taylor Still, and the philosophy of Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, McKone shows how true osteopathy is a philosophy, leading to principles and ultimately to a unique form of treatment.
This style of thinking brings the philosophy, principles and clinical practice to life for the student and qualified practitioner. Anatomy, physiology, signs and symptoms all merge at the point of treatment. Students and practitioners will find this book invaluable as it will allow them to bring together all their osteopathic training into a coherent osteopathic system of practice.
