Description

Providing an advanced introduction to the field of structural bodywork, this valuable resource combines coverage of both skills and theory into one comprehensive guide to this specialized form of bodywork practice. Featuring numerous illustrations with photographs and drawings, it provides extensive information on the theory of structural bodywork related to human anatomy and clinical presentations. Focusing on issues related to dysfunctions of structure, posture, and gait, this reader-friendly text also discusses the background of structural bodywork, how it has developed, and how it is understood today.

Reviews

"The author displays an in-depth knowledge of all the currently taught philosophies, presenting many paradigms of manual medicine that are concurrent with contemporary care: massage, yoga, acupuncture, Pilates, Alexander technique, Rolfing, Feldenkrais, osteopathy and chiropractic. Smith has ably summarised the work of other practitioners, individualised some of his own contributions and produced a practical 'how-to' manual with a clear and simple working protocool." Complementary Medicine

"This is an essential purchase for chiropractors that focus on soft-tissue technique, as it provides an intelligent, yet highly readable, discussion on structural bodywork, building on the theories of Ida Rolf (Rolfing) and Feldenkrais. It focuses on the issues of posture and structure and the functional limitations that arise from them and presents a broader context of discussion that includes chiropractic."

Chiropractic Journal of Australia, December 2005
