Book Description

This thoroughly revised edition of the authoritative reference Fascial Release for Structural Balance expands its extensive library of techniques and includes all of the most current research on the role and treatment of fascia and myofascia in the body. James Earls and Thomas Myers offer the reader more sophisticated testing to explore the relationship between anatomical structure and function, making this updated edition an essential guide for every practitioner.

Fascia, the biological fabric surrounding muscles, bones, and organs, plays a crucial role in both mobility and stability. By learning to intelligently work with the variety of fascial tissues, a bodyworker or therapist can help with many chronic conditions, providing immediate and lasting pain relief, as well as reducing the strains that contribute to movement limitations. The authors argue that approaching fascial restriction requires “a different eye, a different touch, and tissue-specific techniques.”

This book offers a detailed introduction to structural anatomy and fascial release therapy, including “bodyreading”—global postural analysis—coupled with complete technique descriptions. The book features 150 color photographs that clearly demonstrate each technique. Earls and Myers, both respected bodywork professionals, provide any bodywork practitioner using manual therapy—including physiotherapists, osteopaths, chiropractors, myofascial trigger point therapists, and massage therapists—the information they need to deliver effective treatments and create systemic change in clients’ posture and function.

Book Description

Anyone who wants to be active, mobile, and pain-free in everyday life should be aware of the importance of their connective tissue!

A greater knowledge and understanding of connective tissue has been gained in recent years in the fields of physiotherapy, sports science, and medicine. Muscular connective tissue, known as fascia, plays a large role in health, well-being, and mobility—it transmits the power of the muscles, communicates with the nervous system, and serves as a sense organ. Fascia ensures the protection of internal organs and forms the basis for a naturally beautiful body shape.

Connective tissue can perform in a similar way as your existing muscles. Fascia responds to stress and nerve signals, and if it becomes tangled or stuck together, pain and movement problems can occur. The fascia should therefore be specifically targeted by exercise, and 10 minutes twice a week is all you need.

In this book the leading German fascia researcher and Rolfing practitioner Robert Schleip describes how new findings in practical exercise programs for the fascia can be translated to everyday use.

About the Author

Robert Schleip directs the Fascia Research Project at Ulm University, Germany, and is Research Director of the European Rolfing Association.

About the Author

Suzanne Wylde is the founder of Moving Stretch®, which grew out of her years of experience as a stretching trainer and more than ten years’ experience as a therapist. She explains how moving with tension engages the fascia and re-conditions it, freeing our bodies from tension and limitation. She has worked with clients from many backgrounds and with very different bodies, and found one thing to be universally true; a strong and flexible body with good posture, capable of powerful, subtle and coordinated movement not only helps you fulfill your physical potential, it is the basis for reaching your potential in all other ways as well. Through stretching she helps people to get rid of old patterns of tension and pain which can hold us back and make us look and feel older than we are, once again uncovering the youthful, relaxed and powerful bodies that we deserve.
