"Osteopathy is based on the perfection of Nature's work. When all parts of the human body are in line we have health. When they are not, the effect is disease. When the parts are readjusted disease gives place to health. The work of the Osteopath is to adjust the body from the abnormal to the normal; then the abnormal condition gives place to the normal and health is the result of the normal condition."
~ A. T. Still
