Myofascial Stretching is a book written about self-help aspects of the John Barnes method of myofascial release therapy that patients can utilize on their own to supplement treatments with a therapist or to self-treat. Fascia (connective tissue) can restrict and pull the body out of alignment, causing pain and dysfunction including pelvic floor issues. This book describes techniques to help patients release their own fascia, restoring normal tissue length and optimal health to the body.
