In context of the ancient Greek culture from which many modern philosophies and methods of healing originated and developed, Ligeros describes the progress of knowledge evidenced by writings associated with Hippocrates, Aristotle, Galen, Homer, Aesculapius and others. Trained as a medical doctor and a chiropractor, Ligeros applied his skills in Greek language to his extensive research. He references the origins of manipulative therapies including bone-setting, massage, traction, osteopathy, and especially chiropractic throughout the text.
