**When this book is ordered through seller Denver Myofascial Release, it comes with a 4 inch inflatable ball, which is necessary to do many of the techniques in the book. That is why the cost is a little higher. We do not know and cannot guarantee that the other third party sellers are shipping a ball with the book.** Fascia is the tough connective tissue surrounding every cell of the body from head to toe like a three-dimensional spider web. Injury, trauma, poor posture or impaired biomechanics may cause the fascial system to tighten, putting abnormal pressure on nerves, muscles, blood vessels, bones, organs and the brain. This can result in a variety of symptoms including pain, restriction of motion, and structural misalignment, impairing both daily functioning and athletic performance. Myofascial Stretching is a unique self-treatment technique which follows the principles of Myofascial Release. It results in permanent lengthening of the body's connective tissue and can dramatically improve health and quality of life. The techniques employ sustained pressure and elongation into restrictions in the fascia. Two ways to do Myofascial Stretching are included here: One using a small inflatable ball and one utilizing active elongation. The two methods complement each other, especially when one first releases an area of tightness with the ball and then follows up with an active elongation stretch to the same area. This book was written for both the lay person who has chronic pain, muscular tightness and/or postural dysfunction and also for Clinicians to give their patients for home exercise programs. It can benefit anyone with pain or tightness from serious and weekend athletes to office workers and therapists with repetitive strain symptoms. The authors, Jill Stedronsky and Brenda Pardy, are both Occupational Therapists in Denver, Colorado. Both have utilized Myofascial Stretching to improve the quality of their own lives.
