Dr Andrew T. Still, founder of osteopathy worked for 2 decades in the Shawnee Tribes Reservation Land in the US. There he was introduced to Cherokee Healing Arts. He selected the physical body work techniques that included manipulation, mobilization, and soft tissue therapy techniques and organized it into a new manual therapy profession called osteopathy.
