Health practitioners and body workers need a firm understanding of the significance of fascia in human performance. The role nutrition plays in fascial health, how injuries and diseases influence fascia, and the rehabilitative techniques to restore functional capacity of the affected tissue are essential components of improving performance. This book starts with a basic overview of fascia and its biological underpinnings, and progresses through clinical treatment applications, nutritional and pharmacological support information, and techniques for managing fascial conditions and injuries.

Product Details

Product Description


One of the strengths of this text is the amount of research evidence used to support the theory behind the concepts presented. I believe this text could be used for a wide range of health care practitioners/programs. The photos and diagrams are excellent.

This is cutting edge information and will be useful for all manual therapists, allopathic doctors, and health/wellnes providers. This text should be required reading for all healthcare professionals. It will help them understand the role connective tissue (fascia) plays in health and wellness. The nutritional information in chapters 12 & 13 and the chapter on water will help healthcare givers understand why proper supplementation and hydration is needed in the tissues.

About the Author

Dr. Mark Lindsay is one of the most sought after chiropractors and soft tissue specialists by professional, world, and Olympic athletes, and by organizations such as the NHL, NFL, NBA, and MLB. He is a graduate of Palmer Chiropractic College and Guelph University, where he earned a Bachelor of Science and Kinesiology. In 1996, Lindsay was named "Outstanding Field Doctor" by the Canadian Chiropractic Sports Fellowship through his intensive work with Olympic Champion Donovan Bailey. Lindsay's work benefits from the personal understanding that he gained as former athlete. Like his clients, he strove to push physical boundaries and had to overcome serious injury from time to time. Throughout his years in the field, Lindsay has developed a strong network of clients and professionals, each working at the top of their fields. Readers are offered the opportunity to take advantage of this network of knowledge and experience through this cutting-edge text that explores the exciting and significant field of fascia.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disconnect on Connective Tissue. April 6 2012
By Richard Krug - Published on Amazon.com

Simply put, the book did not meet my expectations and I returned it to the private book seller I purchased it from (through Amazon), for a full refund. No problems there. I was hoping to find personally useful information on fascia tissue, a type of connective tissue found throughout the body. I did not find it in this book.

There are two aspects to the book. The first aspect consists of several case studies which seem to go into significant detail. Not being a bodyworker myself, it is beyond the scope of my ability to analyze how helpful these case studies would be to a professional body worker. It seems to me, however, that since the case studies deal with very specific body problems, they might only be helpful to a professional bodyworker who is looking for information on one of those specific problems.

The second aspect of the book consists of an overwhelming myriad of tidbits of information (none of which go into any great detail) about fascia tissue. The problem here is that the book bites off more than it can chew and there seems to be no cohesive intent or purpose to the book. It uses a shotgun approach to the subject of fascia tissue, covering a wide range of material, not all of which relates to fascia tissue in any apparently meaningful way. For example there is a section on "earthing." Earthing basically is nothing more than walking barefoot on the ground. Though I found earthing to be interesting in and of itself, the authors did not relate it very well to the subject of the book - fascia tissue.

Judging by the large number of references in the book, most of the authors' energy seems to have been utilized in the collection of the material, only to leave the reader hanging, in the sense of wondering how it all relates to an understanding of fascia tissue. Simply throwing information at the reader, does not, a good book make.

The book touts itself as a textbook on fascia tissue, but in my opinion, the body of material, aside from the case studies, is too superficial to be considered serious textbook material (compared to college level human anatomy textbooks I've used). The book is expensive for what it offers. I have several books on fascia tissue and my favorite thus far is The Endless Web: Fascial Anatomy and Physical Reality by R. Louis Schultz, for a fraction of the cost.
