Anatomy Trains: Myofascial Meridians for Manual and Movement Therapists, 2e
by Thomas W. Myers

Understanding the role of fascia in healthy movement and postural distortion is of vital importance to bodyworkers and movement therapists.

Written in a style that makes it easy to understand and apply, Anatomy Trains provides an accessible and comprehensive explanation of the anatomy and function of the myofascial system in the body.
