A first publication by Canadian osteopath and teacher Scott Sternthal, D.O., "Melting Bone, Healing Tide" shows us how to reanimate inertial bone tissue through therapeutic touch. This book introduces a simple treatment approach called Biodynamic Skeletal Therapy (BST) which integrates the wisdom of both craniosacral biodynamics and structural manual therapy into the same maneuvers and can be applied anywhere throughout the skeleton. The fundamentals of BST emerged from the author's unwavering belief in the indwelling therapeutics of the human body and in the profound intelligence of the natural world. These ideas have the potential to lead us into exciting, uncharted levels of therapeutic dialogue and to help make other bodywork modalities even more effective. "Melting Bone, Healing Tide" outlines, in accessible yet descriptive terms, the evaluation and treatment protocols of BST, including an efficient way to evaluate the skeleton, called Touch-testing, and a comprehensive 6-step treatment plan. BST can be practiced by all bodyworkers, including massage therapists, physiotherapists, athletic therapists, craniosacral therapists, osteopaths, and chiropractors.
