David Lesondak’s highly successful book serves as a primer for massage therapists, physical therapists, osteopaths, yoga and Pilates teachers, fitness professionals, and medically qualified professionals, giving a good grasp of what fascia is and what it does in the body. Its success derives from the fact that it explores and explains scientific material in a way that is readable and applicable in practice to therapists, teachers and clinicians.

The book has a strong storyline, with each chapter logically connecting to the next, rather like fascia itself! Informative and satisfying to read, it gives the reader an understanding of fascia as a tissue, its role in the various systems of the body and its clinical significance. By the end of the book the reader has a solid working knowledge of fascia.

 

What leading bodywork and movement teachers say about Fascia: What it is and why it matters:

 

  • ‘For everyone interested in getting a better overview of the workings of fascia, this book will become your road map.’ Professor Andry Vleeming
  • ‘Sensitively written with an admirable understanding of fascia’s clinical importance and complex functions, this important book strips away myth, and provides clarity.’ Leon Chaitow
  • ‘I found Lesondak’s writing style to be rich, insightful and engaging. I highly recommend his book as a must have for any fascia library.’ Eric Franklin
  • ‘It’s what every student of mine needs!’ P J O’Clair, Master Instructor Trainer, Merrithew Pilates
