Knowing how to touch the human body when it is in distress is the skill that links bodyworkers with physical- and oriental-medicine practitioners. Nowhere is this knowledge more developed than in the seminal work on trigger-point release of Drs. Janet Travell and David Simons. Their magnum opus now becomes eminently accessible in this clinically pragmatic manual. Informed Touch belongs in the office of every professional practicing a physical medicine of any kind.
• Detailed colour illustrations of pain patterns and trigger-point locations.
• First accessible reference manual for acupuncturists, chiropractors, osteopaths and physical, occupational and massage therapists.
