Fascia is currently the hot topic among manual therapists of all persuasions. All are anxious to improve their understanding of its anatomy and dysfunction. This is the first book to explain and illustrate fascial anatomy relating it specifically to manual therapy techniques by demonstrating what effect such techniques have on body structures.
The author describes in detail the technique of myofascial induction. The text is supported by over 500 spectacular full colour photographs as well as nearly 200 line drawings. In addition to the highly illustrated text there is a DVD containing video clips demonstrating the application of the techniques to dissections of fresh cadavers and showing how the tissues move in response to the manipulation.
