Fascia, the biological fabric surrounding muscles, bones, and organs, plays a crucial role in both mobility and stability.

The authors show that approaching fascial restriction requires a different eye, a different touch, and tissue-specific techniques.
This book offers a detailed introduction to structural and functional anatomy and fascial release therapy, including bodyreading global postural analysis coupled with complete technique descriptions. The book features 150 color photographs that clearly demonstrate each technique. Earls and Myers, both respected bodywork professionals, provide any manual therapist physiotherapists, osteopaths, chiropractors, myofascial trigger point therapists, and massage therapists the information they need to deliver effective treatments and create systemic change in clients posture and function.

Research Director of the European Rolfing Association
