List of Mechanical Link Practitioners

The French osteopaths who created, developed and teach Mechanical Link intend it to be used alone, following Andrew Taylor Still's principle - "Find it, fix it, and leave it alone." Of the approximately 30 people who have studied Mechanical Link in the United States in recent years, only a tiny fraction are utilizing ML exclusively.

Barry Craig

Barry Craig doesn’t practice Mechanical Link, but his work has been strongly influenced by Paul Chauffour, and with the scarcity of ML practitioners, I feel he is worth including as a resource for the Pacific Northwest. Also, his FAQs equally apply to Mechanical Link, and I wish I had expressed it so well!
