Product Description

Review

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

Format: Paperback
The Soft Tissue Release Handbook is a comprehensive, practical manual of STR technique, with detailed instructions and clear photos that enabled me to transfer STR from the page to my clients in a more precise and specific way than previously.

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.

I purchased this book with the intention of using the techniques to enhance the chiropractic adjustments I already apply.
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.
