This book is for people who have knowledge of anatomy and experience doing other forms of body work, but other people can take advantage of the information in this book. If you are not a body work practitioner, you may want to read this with an anatomy book open alongside it.The book talks about why and how body rolling works, and goes on to describe several routines for different parts of the body. Special issues such as pregnancy or lack of mobility are addressed as well. Detailed photos are provided showing the steps of the routines.The book served as a good introduction to body rolling. I am ready to give it a try, and I feel better prepared after reading the book. However, I will still probably seek out a DVD or class just to get additional visual help.
