Jane Johnson is a chartered physiotherapist with a passion for helping massage therapists and other health and fitness professionals to understand common assessment and treatment methods. As a former massage therapist and fitness instructor herself, she appreciates the challenges and opportunities facing these professionals. She is the author of four titles in the Hands-On Guides for Therapists series. These are, Postural Assessment, Therapeutic Stretching, Soft Tissue Release, and Deep Tissue Massage. Jane grew up in central London where she had worked all of her life. In 2012 she bought an unmodernised house and moved to the north of England in order to spend more time writing. She currently works part time as a musculoskeletal physiotherapist in occupational health. She can frequently be seen walking along the coast in the early hours of the morning with her three large rescue dogs, or late at night ambling up and down the alleyways with her canine companions. At other times she is wrapped in blankets drinking tea and writing her latest book.
