Postural Correction presents 30 of the most commonly occurring postural conditions in a comprehensive format, providing hands-on therapists and body workers the knowledge and resources to help clients address malalignments. Focusing on treatment rather than assessment, it takes a direct approach and applies specific techniques to improve posture from an anatomical rather than aesthetic perspective. Techniques vary for each posture correction, including deep tissue massage, simple passive stretches, soft tissue release, common trigger points and gentle limb traction. Postural Correction, a valuable adjunct to any joint-manipulative technique, will help professionals do both by correcting malalignments at a specific joint and with a more holistic approach.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"An ideal instruction reference for students, therapists, and the non-specialist reader with an interest in postural correction issues. "Postural Correction" is as informative and educational as it is thoroughly 'user friendly' in content, tone, organization and presentation. "Postural Correction" is very highly recommended for professional, community, and academic library Health/Medicine instructional reference collections."

--The Midwest Book Review

"Therapists will use different techniques for different clients and this book helps guide them through the possibilities. It also helps therapists think outside the box and approach clients in a different way, if one technique is not working. The photographs are very helpful... Having a book like this will help therapists take the skills they already have and apply some new theory and techniques to help their clients. The book is written at an appropriate level, not going into too much scientific detail that might be beyond the needs of some massage therapists. Yet, it still challenges therapists to approach their treatments differently."

--Doody's Book Review
