Robert Lever is now recognised as a deep thinker in the field of osteopathy and has developed an international following since the publication of his first book At the Still Point of the Turning World: The Art and Philosophy of Osteopathy. He puts into clear and understandable prose the ideas and feelings that many osteopaths experience but find difficult to express. This book is a companion volume to his previous work and continues his exploration of the art and philosophy of osteopathy. The art of osteopathy has always been based on a body of anatomical and physiological theory and data but it has recently been expanded in exciting ways involving contemporary thinking in physics and biology that tell us more about disease causation and tissue function. This concise, well organized and highly readable book brings these two fields of thinking together. The application of concept, theory and, above all, principle, is the real challenge and it is by addressing these with penetration and relevance that the book allows the practitioner to 'find the health' rather than merely attempting to confront disease.
In China, the rhythms of time and nature are understood to affect
the body and general health and wellbeing. Traditional Chinese
medicine incorporates the ebbs and flows of time into achieving and
maintaining good health. The cycle of four seasons is a complete
circulation and the same is true of the 24-hour day. Understanding
this kind of "body clock" is what "The Body Clock Guide" is all
about, regardless of whether or not you are a practitioner of TCM.

An accompanying DVD features a video demonstrating the form and additional information on its history and origins, and a CD provides options for verbal instructions to lead the practitioner through the exercises, or music to accompany them. Through integrating breathing exercises into Yangsheng, the 12 steps are effective for promoting good health, preserving life and cultivating the spirit, and they are suitable for all ages.
