WALPOLE, Maine, May 8, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- This revised edition of the authoritative reference for myofascial therapy Fascial Release for Structural Balance brings the book up to date with the most current research on the role of fascia and myofascia in body posture and movement, and how treatment can improve it. This edition takes advantage of more sophisticated functional testing, 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 palpatory tissue assessment," the book features 150 color photographs that clearly demonstrate each technique. The authors, both respected bodywork professionals with a combined 70 years of practice experience, 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 Myers argue that approaching the fascia requires "a different eye, a different touch, and tissue-specific techniques."
