This softcover book serves as a primer for professionals, such as doctors, physical therapists, osteopaths, massage therapists, and fitness professionals, to give them a good grasp of what fascia is and what it does in the body.
It gives the reader an understanding of fascia as a tissue, its role in the various systems of the body and its clinical significance.
By the end of the book the reader will have a solid working knowledge of fascia. This book is complete unto itself, but also serve as a springboard to deeper explorations should the reader choose to do so.
The book has a strong storyline, with each chapter logically connecting to the next, rather like fascia itself!
It is informative and satisfying to read.
