5.0 out of 5 stars An essential guide for osteopathic techniques~Brilliant, 13 Feb 2001
By 
Miss.NK Matharu (Sparkhill, Birmingham United Kingdom) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Handbook of Osteopathic Technique Third Edition (Paperback)
Laurie Hartman is more than well known in the osteopathic field for his work. Students of Osteopathy and practitioners of Osteopathy aspire to be like him and to have the skill he has developed. In this book he uses his extensive teaching and clinical experiences to guide the reader through their learning and developement of ideas and techniques. The book is set out with lots of pictures showing technique positions and understandable discriptions. He discusses all aspects of osteopathic techniques and emphasizes the most and least suitable techniques for the different body types and areas. The book is designed for students of osteopathy and used as a core book for study. It is also a useful book for pysio's and manual therapists. I would highly recommend this book to anyone in the field of osteopathy and manipulative therapies. A definate must if you are a student of osteopathy.

This review is from: Handbook of Osteopathic Technique Third Edition (Paperback)
Laurie Hartman is Associate Professor of Osteopathic Technique at the British School of Osteopathy. He has taught at the BSO since 1965, and also at osteopathy schools in the USA, France, Japan, Belgium, Spain, Australia, Canada, Germany and Scandinavia.
This excellent book is a compendium of photographs and full descriptions of osteopathic techniques. Every practitioner of any manual therapy will find this book of absorbing interest, but it will be indispensable for the osteopath.

5.0 out of 5 stars The classic osteopathic technique book, 23 Oct 2011
This review is from: Handbook of Osteopathic Technique Third Edition (Paperback)
If you only buy one osteopathic technique book, this has to be it. Describing in detail, with clear photos, a huge range of LAHVT, articulation(mobilsation) and soft tissue techniques for every spinal and limb joint. The theory behind the techniques is also clearly described. The emphasis is on safe, comfortable, non-traumatic technique. LAHVTS are set up using multiple minimal leverages so the a joint can be gapped with the minimum of force. A must-have book from a master of toughtful osteopathic manipulation
