Fascial Release for Structural Balance, Revised Edition
By: Thomas Myers(Author)
This thoroughly revised edition of the authoritative reference Fascial Release for Structural Balance
brings the book up to date with all of the most current research on the role of fascia and myofascia in the body, and how treatment affects it. This edition takes advantage of more sophisticated testing to explore in greater detail the relationship between anatomical structure and function, making it an even more essential guide. Offering a detailed introduction to structural anatomy and fascial release therapy, including postural analysis, complete technique descriptions, and the art of proper assessment of a patient through "bodyreading," the book features 150 color photographs that clearly demonstrate each technique. The authors, both respected bodywork professionals, give any bodywork practitioner using manual therapy--including physiotherapists, osteopaths, chiropractors, myofascial and trigger point therapists, and massage therapists--the information they need to deliver effective treatments and create long-lasting, systemic change in clients' shape and structure.
Fascia, the soft tissue surrounding muscles, bones, and organs, plays a crucial role in supporting the body. By learning to intelligently manipulate it, a bodyworker or therapist can help with many chronic conditions that their clients suffer from, providing immediate pain relief as well as reducing the strains that may contribute to the patient's ongoing aches and pains, leading to rapid, effective, and lasting pain relief. James Earls and Thomas Meyers argue that approaching the fascia requires "a different eye, a different touch, and tissue-specific techniques."
"With a wonderful blend of art and science, this text brings together many aspects of structural change grounded in anatomical precision.It lets you see the relationships surrounding the body and how they link to produce the various patterns you will see in your clients, equally importantly, it gives you the strategies to address them." --Robert Schleip, PhD, MA, Director of Fascia Research Project, Institute of Applied Physiology, Ulm University. Research Director of the European Rolfing Association"What a great idea to combine James Earls' expertise and philosophy with Tom Myers' classic contributions to structural bodywork. This is the long-awaited expansion of the Anatomy Trains theoretical concepts into a clearly written, functional `how to' manual that is a must-read textbook for all bodyworkers of all ranges of experience - not just structural integrators." --Art Riggs, Certified Advanced Rolfer® and massage therapist, author of Deep Tissue Massage: A Visual Guide to Therapy Techniques"Fascial release has never been made more understandable and achievable - a well illustrated and excellent read." --Leon Chaitow, ND, DO, Honorary Fellow, University of Westminster, London Editor-in-Chief, Journal of Bodywork & Movement Therapies"This book is a thorough and refreshing approach to regional fascial release technique." --Erik Dalton, PhD, author of Myoskeletal Alignment Techniques®--This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.
