Overview

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 clients with many chronic conditions, providing immediate pain relief as well as reducing ongoing aches and pains. In Fascial Release for Structural Balance, authors James Earls and Thomas Meyers—both respected bodywork professionals—argue that approaching the fascia requires “a different eye, a different touch, and tissue-specific techniques.” Designed for any bodywork practitioner using manual therapy, including physiotherapists, osteopaths, chiropractors, myofascial and trigger point therapists, and massage therapists, this book offers a detailed introduction to structural anatomy and fascial release therapy, including postural analysis, complete technique descriptions, and the art of proper assessment of a patient through “bodyreading.” Featuring 150 black-and-white photographs, Fascial Release for Structural Balance provides the information therapists need to give effective treatments and create long-lasting, systemic change in clients’ shape and structure.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“What a great idea to combine James Earls’ expertise and philosophy with Tom
Myers’ classic contributions to structural bodywork. This is the long-awaited expansion of the Anatomy Trains theoretical concepts into a clearly written, functional ‘how to’ manual that is a must-read textbook for all bodyworkers of all ranges of experience – not just structural integrators.”
—Art Riggs, Certified Advanced Rolfer® and massage therapist, author of Deep
Tissue Massage: A Visual Guide to Therapy Techniques

 
“Fascial release has never been made more understandable and achievable – a well illustrated and excellent read.”
—Leon Chaitow, ND, DO, Honorary Fellow, University of Westminster, London
Editor-in-Chief, Journal of Bodywork & Movement Therapies
 
“This book is a thorough and refreshing approach to regional fascial release technique.”
—Erik Dalton, PhD, author of Myoskeletal Alignment Techniques®
 
“With a wonderful blend of art and science, this text brings together many aspects of structural change grounded in anatomical precision. It lets you see the relationships surrounding the body and how they link to produce the various patterns you will see in your clients, equally importantly, it gives you the strategies to address them.”
—Robert Schleip, PhD, MA, Director of Fascia Research Project, Institute of
Applied Physiology, Ulm University. Research Director of the European
Rolfing Association
