Dr. Krishna Murari Modi is a leading osteopath and , perhaps, the first one to qualify from India. He was a practicing orthopaedist within the tradition of allopathy till he found himself dissatisfied with the inadequacy of this method in treating various types of aches and pains. He delved deeper and discovered that osteopathy, a therapy which could give tremendous relief to the sufferer, remained untapped.
Widely travelled through the US - the birthplace of osteopathy, European and Scandinavian countries, the erstwhile USSR and the Middle East, the author has gained firsthand knowledge of the latest advances in manipulative therapy. He has also written extensively on the subject.
He now runs a 100-bed hospital of alternative medicine – Dr Modi’s Karjat Health Resort at Karjat, Village Wanjale, Dist. Raigarh, Maharashtra. He plans to open a training centre for osteopathy and natural medicine shortly.
