The postcard for today is a circa 1905 view of The American School of Osteopathy in Kirksville Missouri. The school was founded in 1892 by Dr. Andrew Taylor Still. This was the first institution of osteopathic education and continues today as A. T. Still University. Dr. Still developed the system of therapy based on the concept that the body can develop its own cures for diseases when the body is in a normal structural relationship, has a normal environment and has good nutrition. Osteopathy takes a "holistic" approach to medical care but also embraces modern medical knowledge when needed. This postcard is available in my Missouri listings along with 10,000 additional post cards on my website Moody's Postcards.
