4.0 out of 5 stars Great view of connective tissue as a physical structure
Before I read this book I had never really considered the functioning of connective tissue as a "web-like" structure within which bone and muscle articulate. The authors contend, starting with embrionic anatomy and onward, that the c.t. forms a bed within which cells differentiate. From this view point of c.t. being a primary base for physical form, we are...

3.0 out of 5 stars good insight
This book provides a good general overview into the relationship between the myofascial structure and the bones and joints. Good background reading for anyone who wants to better understand how our body is designed to work as a single integrated unit.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great view of connective tissue as a physical structure, 25 Dec 1998
By A Customer
Before I read this book I had never really considered the functioning of connective tissue as a "web-like" structure within which bone and muscle articulate. The authors contend, starting with embrionic anatomy and onward, that the c.t. forms a bed within which cells differentiate. From this view point of c.t. being a primary base for physical form, we are shown how all parts of the web are connected, and create "bands" that ideally are nether too tight or too loose. I didn't know much about Rolfing either, but apparently this bodywork deals specificly with c.t. Good book, great publishing company.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great little book, very accessible and interesting and only half way thru!, 18 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was recommended this book by a tutor on my anatomy course and it's an easy read, super interesting and love that it has all the embryological development. Good little book and a nice foundation into the ever developing subject of connective tissue

4.0 out of 5 stars endless web, 28 Sep 2010
By 
I found this book very interesting as there is very little to read on the subject of fascia. The only irritating thing was the tendency to use terminology such as "tail-bone" and "back-bone" instead of coccyx and spine, there are others, but maybe thats an american thing. It was interesting to revisit embryology and to look at the body tissues as they develop through the matrix of connective tissue. A good introduction to Rolfing but also useful to osteos, chiros, physios as it gets you thinking outside of your comfort-zone and questioning what tissues you are treating/ influencing in patients.

5.0 out of 5 stars Deep and atleast to me new information about our bodyminds, 10 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book really has helped me to understand more about the nature of how our body(minds) store emotional body armourings. Information like this , if you ask me, should be taken into consideration when considering the form of exercise one is going into and what rehabilitation and getting into shape might mean from the viewpoint of myofascia. Lots of helpful illustrations and good reading.
