Quote of the day:
To know Osteopathy one must live it in practice, this is the proving ground it is not a theory but an art based in an oral tradition.– James S Jealous DO
Joke of the day:A man goes to visit his osteopath to ask about a pain he's feeling in his knee. He gets on the table and the osteopath sets to work massaging and stretching his muscles.
"That feels nice," the man says. "What are you doing?""Well," the osteopath says, "I'm working through all the tensions and problems in your life. This knot here is your marriage, this bump is your career and this tendon is your family."
"Really?" the man says. "You can solve all those problems just by doing this?""Nah," the osteopath says. "I'm just pulling your leg."
