Motility, relating to the vital energy of the human tissues, is a basic concept in osteopathy. This book presents a simple and systematic definition of motility, based on the movement of all of the body’s structures during embryogenesis.  The book describes a new model of practice based on motility and developed by Dr Alain Auberville.

Illustrated in two colours with clear and original line drawings and photographs. The book was first published in French by Elsevier Masson.
