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 bodys 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.

Alain Auberville practiced as a physiotherapist from 1965 to 1983 and qualified as an osteopath in 1984. He then went on to complete his professional development by studying naturopathy and Chinese medicine. He was involved in founding the osteopathy schools Eurostéo and InSO-Aix-en-Provence, where he taught the visceral approach to osteopathy. He now practices at Pélissanne, France. Dr Auberville has developed his embryology-based motility concept over the last 30 years by experimenting and clinically validating his hypothesis. He has extended the concept for all the structures and the visceral, neurologic and musculoskeletal systems of the body. He has been teaching this concept and its applications for more than 15 years to students of the schools he co-founded in France as well as to those attending courses at the Centre Ostéopathique du Québec, Canada. He teaches postgraduate courses, notably in France, Italy and Russia.
