"Myofascial Release Manual ", Carol J. Manheim.
'The Myofascial Release Manual' is a valuable resource for learning the skills of myofascial stretching and release. Carol J. Manheim introduces the theory of myofascial release, then guides the practitioner into interpreting the appropriate feedback from the patient and responding to it with specific releases. The text features over 150 photographs which clearly illustrate the key steps of each release. Look at the amazon.com page (right) to see inside the book.
"Anatomy Trains", Tom Myers.
Anatomy Trains: Myofascial Meridians for Manual and Movement Therapists by Tom Myers is an extraordinary work for bodywork practitioners, describing a 'whole systems' view of the connections between muscles within the fascial net. Myers explains how patterns of strain are communicated through the web of connections to contribute to stability, balance and compensation in posture and movement. Very highly recommended.
