Osteopathy emphasises the importance of making therapeutic pauses during treatments. But it is not explained why a pause should be incorporated into the treatment session, just that it is important to do so. This book is based on research which attempted to understand and identify the physiology that might justify the inclusion of pauses during treatment. It also looked at how much the pause was used within osteopathic treatment in general.
Louise’s great interest has always been medicine. She studied acupuncture and has practised classical homeopathy for 20 years. Her interest in manual therapy started in 1996 with Bowen therapy. To understand the amazing results of Bowen, she studied osteopathy for six years. She also teaches Niromathe method with contagious enthusiasm. Louise strongly believes that understanding human physiology is essential to the quality of the “moves” in any manual therapy. Studying physiology makes us realise that all manual therapists are in fact doing “the same”, i.e. stimulating the central nervous system. Only techniques are different. However, to reach optimal efficiency with one technique, one must know the physiology behind it. Quality of move demands a quality of attitude from the therapists and a general quality of life.
