At the core of Dr. A. T. Still’s 19th-century osteopathic philosophy is the understanding that the living being is an inseparable unit comprising body, mind, and spirit. Interface illuminates this feature of Still’s philosophy and further clarifies his ideas using those of other great thinkers from ancient and modern times. The book then synthesizes current scientific understanding to explain the mechanisms by which body, mind, and spirit interconnect, forming a model for osteopathy’s approach to healing.

"Interface is a wide-ranging and highly engaging exploration of both the historical roots and the modern science underlying some of the most important ideas in therapeutics. In it, Lee describes the origin of form, the blueprint of the body, in a manner that is both scientific and poetic. Those who use their hands to nurture their fellow beings will find on these pages precious insights, validation, and inspiration." — James Oschman, PhD
