Editorial Reviews

Review

"A very in-depth resource ideal for professionals with an interest in fascia & human movement, the book offers comprehensive coverage ranging from clinical conditions & associated therapies, to recent developed research techniques."

International Therapy, January 2013 (Issue 103)

"This book provdies a comprehensive collation of information regarding fasica by authors and contributors from diverse clinical and professional backgrounds. The text covers the structure and function of fasica, the related disorders, an indepth overview of therapies through to their applications. The most up-to-date research techniques are discussed along with directions for furture research...In short, this is a book that will become a classic text and should find its way onto the bookshelf of anyone with a therapeutic interest in the humnan body."

Posture and Mobility, January 2013

"The editors have successfully integrated current scientific knowledge of fascial anatomy and physiology with clinical applicationas...Helpful videos are available via the book's website to complement some of the chapters...The website also provides opportunity to report typographical errors, and as a first edition of a very wide subject, these are probably unavoidable...The book should be of interest to various health practitioners, including physiotherapists, osteopaths, and chiropractors, to improve understanding of different clinical concepts while not aiming to provide detailed information regarding specfic manipulative techniques."

Physical Therapy Review, October 2013
