About the Author:

Manipulation: Theory and Practice; Fibromyalgia Syndrome: A Practitioner’s Guide to Treatment, and many more. He is editor of the peer reviewed Journal of Bodywork and Movement Therapies, that offers a multidisciplinary perspective on physical methods of patient care. Leon Chaitow was for many years senior lecturer on the Therapeutic Bodywork degree courses which he helped to design at the School of Integrated Health, University of Westminster, London, where is he now an Honorary Fellow. He continues to teach and practice part-time in London, when not in Corfu, Greece where he focuses on his writing.

Review:

"The addition of a CD-Rom to supplement the practical descriptions is probably worth the expense of buying a new copy alone. Video clips on (the) CD-Rom provide that additional perspective when explaining a practical topic that is sometimes dificult to do in 2D format. Well done to the author and publishers for this welcome innovation." Nicola Phillips, Physical Therapy in Sport (2002)
