The book, Functional Release for Structural Balance, Revised Edition, is now updated with current research and functional testing on the role of fascia and myofascia in body posture, and how treatment can improve it.

Written by Thomas Myers and James Earls, the book is a detailed introduction to structural anatomy and fascial release therapy. More than 150 color photographs demonstrate each technique explained in the book.

Fascia, as described in the release, is the soft tissue that surrounds the muscles, bones, and organs, and it plays a crucial role in supporting the body. It is suggested that by learning to manipulate it, a physical therapist can help their patients relieve their chronic pain.
