Anatomy of Potency 2nd Edition

Anatomy of Potency
Nicholas Handoll D.O.
Stillness Press
Book Description: 

To help further our understanding of cranial osteopathy, Handoll undertakes the challenge of distilling the current knowledge of quantum physics into a digestible form. Within this context he raises and attempts to answer the questions: What is reality? What is sense perception? and How do the two interact? In the same spirit he also addresses many of the seeming incongruities and controversies in osteopathy in the cranial field. In the practice of Cranial Osteopathy, one must understand the essentially linear concepts of anatomy and physiology as well as the nonlinear concepts related to the energy that binds and operates the system. This book explains much of this dichotomy by way of quantum physics while challenging our perceptions of reality. A great read.

This new edition was printed in the USA rather than the UK so the price has been reduced from $64 to $49 due to the lower printing costs and the books not having to be shipped from the UK. The new 2nd Edition has been expanded and as different aspects of physics have changed, these points have been updated as well.


Nick [Handoll] has given us a seminal text on Osteopathy and the New Physics.
This is a must read book. It can open and inform the mind of any practitioner with a commitment to the principle of vitalism, whatever their osteopathic persuasion, and invite them to enjoy greater trust in the vast forces that are involved in our interaction with our patients.

Ostensibly this is a book about osteopathy and the perception and interpretation of reality. More specifically, it is about the “cranial osteopathic concept” in practice and our interpretation of the world.
. . . [Handoll] rightly questions not only our cultural perspectives on the nature of substance, but also questions our theories as osteopaths and tries to provide some answers on the subject of the cranial osteopathic concept itself. This latter is, as most of us in the field know all too well, essential if we are to truly interpret the words and modes expounded by Sutherland, Becker, and all those wise men and women who helped to drive this intriguing part of our osteopathic heritage forward.. . . The way of our bodies blend with our cosmic environment is most elegantly expressed in the book in a way that provides a therapeutic orientation that potentises the work we do.
