“Alfred Pischinger’s work in matrix regulation gives us not just a glimpse, but a detailed panorama of the vital, dynamic, regulatory terrain of the body: the human fascial system. This refutes the prevalent understanding of connective tissue as inert filler, or packing material. With Pischinger’s work we’re transported to a whole world of function taking place on a cellular level. To better understand many of the operations that manual therapy interacts with, we’d be hard-pressed to find a more relevant and significant resource.”
—Frank Lowen, founder of BioValent Manual Therapy, Albuquerque, NM
“Pischinger’s classic book gives alternative health-care practitioners the scientific evidence and detailed physical structure of the basic principle of their disciplines. In chiropractic this principle is called the ‘innate intelligence’ of the body to heal itself; in naturopathy, homeopathy, and other natural healing arts, it is called the ‘terrain’ of the body, and is considered crucial to health. Manual therapists (physical therapists, massage therapists, and others) will gain new insight into how touch affects fascia and other connective tissue. There is a large section on how acupuncture regulates the extracellular matrix, and the mind-body connection is explored.
“This new revised translation deepens the health-care professional’s understanding of both the complexity of fascial relationships and the simplicity of the healing process.”
—Ingeborg Eibl, translator, DC, ND, Rochester, NY
