Our Philosophy

At the Osteopathic Center, we are dedicated to helping an individual achieve a higher level of wellness. In general, this is best accomplished by a highly-motivated person working together with the health practitioner, rather than unquestioningly taking his/her advice.

Toward this end, Dr. Lee utilizes Osteopathic Manipulative Treatment, especially Cranial Osteopathy.  Dr. Lee reads the patient’s body to guide his treatment and to find the diagnosis, addressing the uniqueness of each individual.

Dr. Lee’s Book

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: Mechanisms of Spirit in Osteopathy 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.
