As the title suggests, this book presents a clear and easy to understand explanation of what the fascia is and the role it plays in the body. As the importance of fascia is increasingly recognized it became obvious that there was a need for a book that clearly and concisely presents the facts. This is that book. It has a strong storyline, with each chapter logically connecting to the next, rather like fascia itself! It is informative and satisfying to read.
Fascia - What It Is and Why It Matters serves as an essential primer for professionals, such as movement educators, physical therapists, osteopaths, massage therapists, fitness professionals, and doctors enabling them to attain a solid grasp of what fascia is and what it does in the body. It provides an understanding of fascia as a tissue, of its role in the various systems of the body and of its clinical significance. The book is complete in itself, but also it may also serve as a springboard to deeper explorations should the reader wish to go further.
"David's book is an enthralling clarification of all things fascia related. He distills the anatomical history, evidence and modern day practices of this lesser-known body part and weaves all threads together with a rock and roll sensibility. It's must read non-fiction for movement educators, clinicians, manual therapists and anatomy geeks."—Jill Miller, author of The Roll Model, and Body by Breath
"I love the way David tells his story by first relating the facts and theories we all need for such a complex subject as fascia. Yet he covers extensive but essential material in a way that leaves you refreshingly in a state of wonderment instead of exhaustion. From there he departs from other authors by weaving in his own perspectives and unique experiences with fascia: as an experienced clinician; as a videographer of anything fascia; and as a genuinely thoughtful, feeling person who cares deeply about what he writes. I thoroughly enjoyed it and so will you."—Chris Frederick, PT, Co-Director Stretch to Win Institute, Creators of Fascial Stretch Therapy™ www.StretchToWin.com
"I've had to translate the chapters of most fascia books for my clients and students—until now. Thank you David, for simplifying this complex subject and doing it in the most entertaining of ways. Fascia fundamentals at its absolute best!"—PJ O'Clair, Master Instructor Trainer at Merrithew, Senior Master Instructor TRX™, Owner of ClubXcel and Northeast Pilates
