5.0 out of 5 stars Highly Recommended, 14 Dec. 2011
This Practical handbook has been skillfully written by the author with the student and therapist's needs in mind. Initial Chapters cover musculo-skeletal anatomy, postural dysfunctions as well as core stability and myofascial sling systems so that MET are put into perspective for their uses.
However in my opinion the MET section is the highlight of the book, its fantastically clear photos and well structured presentation allow easy understanding for the student as well as easy referencing for the already experienced practitioner.
The author goes through assessment of the area/muscle, which includes functional assessment before clearly demonstrating the specific MET move and its variations if appropriate. Care has obviously been taken to demonstrate good delivery of the technique which takes into consideration the importance of practitioner s posture.

Highly recommended.
