Soft Tissue Release (STR) is becoming an increasingly popular soft tissue treatment technique. It is being used as a therapy itself and alongside other modalities in the treatment of a range of soft tissue problems. This unique book clearly shows the reader how STR can be used to treat common injuries and conditions. Packed full of colour photographs and anatomical drawings, the book integrates the use of STR with an understanding of how dysfunction in the body's essential movement patterns can impact on everyday life and sporting activities. The reader will be able to employ STR quickly to restore pain free movement and sporting performance. --Embody magazine

As well as being an excellent "Hands on" book, I also found that the notes on the underpinning principles and musculoskeletal anatomy are sufficiently detailed to challenge the reflective practitioner to develop their own clinical practice.
I would say it's essential reading on a popular technique for any therapist, whether newly qualified or experienced, and excellent value for money.
The book is very concise and yet simple to follow. The results from my patients have been fantastic and I have reduced the amount of adjustments needed as a result. I stronlgy recommend this book to anyone who works with disorders of the muscular-skeletal system.
There are a few books on ths subject on the market. This, and "Soft Tissue Release (A practical guide for Physiotherapists)" are by far the easiest to understand
