Postural Correction by Jane Johnson

9781492507123_zoomPostural Correction presents 30 of the most commonly occurring postural conditions in a comprehensive format, providing the knowledge and resources to help clients address their malalignments.

These vary for each posture correction, including deep tissue massage, simple passive stretches, soft tissue release, common trigger points and gentle limb traction.

Postural Correction is part of the bestselling Hands-on Guides for Therapists series.
