Arteries are essential structures, vital and omnipresent with surprisingly important functions. Their roles include those which are well-known, such as providing nutrition to tissues. There are some functions which are often underestimated and overlooked. Arteries also serve as conduits for information to the autonomic nervous system as well as providing biomechanical function of the extremities, spine and the viscero-organic system. In fact, the vascular system along with its accompanying autonomic nervous system unite the whole body and provide the osteopath with “the link” which is simultaneously fluid, mechanical and neurological.

This publication is the result of 15 years of work and clinical practice by the authors. Their work makes a complete manual approach to examination and treatment of the vascular system possible.
Undeniably, this osteopathic approach to examination and treatment of arteries offers new perspectives to traditional medicine. This work serves as a clear and didactic reference to allow our readers to finally access a means of putting the original concept proposed by A.T. Still into actual clinical practice. “The rule of the artery is supreme”.
