Editorial Reviews

Review

“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

Despite the abundant bibliographic references, which though appropriate and thorough, make for a thicker reading experience, this book is a tour de force that compels one to expand any previous perspectives concerning the meaning of excellent health in the human body. A must for anyone interested in or involved in any healing art.

This book was introduced to me by my teacher Frank Lowen, founder of Lowen Systems & Dynamic Manual Interface. As a manual therapist on the cutting edge of understanding and experiencing what the body's capacity for self-regulation is about, AND the ability to assist the body's mechanisms of self-regulation with the use of the hands, this book is a MUST. It gives new light and new hope for the emerging fields of manual therapy, gives support to the founders and early pioneers in the field of manual therapy, and provides a well balanced foundation for a practitioner who practices. With new findings and wisdom from the likes of Hans Seley and Alfred Pischinger, this will surely become a resource in all massage and manual therapy programs who know deep in their hearts the benefits of hands on healing.
Thank you to Frank Lowen for facilitating the reproduction and publishing of this book with a great risk from Richard Grossinger at North Atlantic Books!

This should be required reading for MDs, PTs, MTs, Chiropractors, and every health professional dealing with pain and chronic illness. Eye-opening, to put it mildly

Dr. Pischinger has solved the mystery of the Traditional chinese medicine"s Acupuncture point.

This paves the way for the BioInformation medicines that we we shall see in the near future.
