Unreliable 14 Mar. 2004
By myoman - Published on Amazon.com
The first page I turned to was a section on a positional release for pectoralis minor. She claimed its origin was on ribs 2-4. Hertling & Kessler, McGee, Snell, Grays, Netter, Trevel, Beil, Tortora, 2 different muscle testing books, two different kinesiology books, and personal experience with cadavers say that pectoralis minor originates on ribs 3-5!
This would have been inconsequential except that her reason for treating pec minor was to SPECIFICALLY MOBILIZE THE SECOND RIB. This means she was using pec minor's erroneous attachment as a BASIS for treatment. Upon further review of this book, I have found it is littered with simular errors. With all of the author's training, she doesn't seem to have a grasp on rudementary aspects of knowledge. With that being said, I cannot trust the knowledge contained in this book or any of her volumes.
One other point: Throughout the book she constantly "buffs-up" her form of treatment; as if to try to convince me on how revolutionary this method is. She has many many trademarked names for new things (all of which have been found in other disciplines; specifically craniosacral therapy/myofacial release and any routine positional release book), and many instances where she reiterates how new and involved IMT is. Her self promoting actually makes her look unconfidant about her treatment; that it cannot hold up on its own merit without promotion. Recommended books: Postional Release Therapy by D'Ambrogio, Spinal Manipulations by Bourdillan, and Principles of Manual Medicine.

great book for the clinician 25 Feb. 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
I use this book alot in the clinic (outpatient PT). The strain/counterstrain techniques are illustrated and very effective. Alot of theory, but lots of practical applications with muscle energy, strain/counterstrain, and even tendon/ligament therapy. Highly recommend it!
