Art of Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine - Dr. Alex King
2 days ago
OMM is a pure expression of my artistry. I want to push the limits of my own creativity in terms of healing others. Introduction As a recent graduate of the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine (PCOM), our next guest, Dr. Alex King, expresses how his passion of art has worked synergistically with his work healing patients utilizing osteopathic manipulative medicine (OMM). In the interview, Dr. King describes how his mother noticed an aptitude for art from a very young age. He was encouraged to draw illustrations of what he saw in his imagination, including the monsters he saw in his dreams as a child. This skill has ultimately enhanced Alex's ability to be a better physician. As Dr. King states, "I think the creative process and being comfortable in the unknown helps me think out problems and see things outside of the box." Despite Dr. King's pursuits in his medical career, he continues to run his website displaying artwork and blog posts.
