    • Thank you to Valeria A Ferreira DO MSc Ost PGCAP, lecturer at the British School of Osteopathy, for this thorough review of Til Luchau’s ‘Advanced Myofascial Techniques Volume 1‘. We anticipate publication of Volume 2 (Head, neck, spine and ribs) in March this year.’Luchau’s book offers a great choice of visually attractive anatomic pictures, photos, diagrams as well as a well-edited text, with clear and simple explanations. Most of the author’s quotes and descriptions are supported by research studies, making this book both informative and useful to the reader. The attention to details with “Clear Key points charts” and user-friendly study guide at the end of each chapter also helps to consolidate the subject covered.’
