David Lesondak’s highly successful book serves as a primer for massage therapists, physical therapists, osteopaths, yoga and Pilates teachers, fitness professionals, and medically qualified professionals, giving a good grasp of what fascia is and what it does in the body. Its success derives from the fact that it explores and explains scientific material in a way that is readable and applicable in practice to therapists, teachers, and clinicians.
The book has a strong storyline, with each chapter logically connecting to the next, rather like fascia itself! Informative and satisfying to read, it gives the reader an understanding of fascia as a tissue, its role in the various systems of the body, and its clinical significance.
By the end of the book, the reader has a solid working knowledge of fascia.
