Positional release techniques by Leon Chaitow( Book )

42 editions published between 1996 and 2018 in 5 languages and held by 565 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Osteopathic positional release techniques (PRT) are gentle manual treatments for muscle pain and spasm which involve resetting muscle tone and enhancing circulation. They are amongst the simplest soft tissue techniques to learn and the most useful to practice. A variety of modalities of a similar nature (also described) have emerged from physiotherapy such as 'unloading' taping, Mobilisation with Movement (MWM) and McKenzie methods, as well as chiropractic's sacro-occipital technique (SOT)." "The value and importance of positional release methods lies in their non-invasive nature, their ease of application, and their potential for instant response in cases of acute spasm and pain. They also allow chronically tense tissues to relax and can be used as part of integrated therapeutic interventions that employ other soft tissue and joint normalization procedures."--Jacket

The self-assessment tests can also be used to measure progress." "By addressing the needs of both the therapist and the client Maintaining Body Balance, Flexibility and Stability recognizes that today many individuals want to take responsibility for their own body fitness.
