Description - Harmonic Healing by Zachary J. Comeaux

Connective tissue release, or myofascial release, is a major theme in manual therapies, including osteopathic medicine. Most methods involve placing the patient in a passive, relaxed position to make a diagnosis and to treat. However, many practitioners have intuitively sensed that rhythmic motion should be a component of therapy, and have begun to include it in their practice. "Harmonic Healing" introduces such an application of connective tissue principles, known as Facilitated Oscillatory Release (FOR).This book is an instructional manual that reviews the role of oscillatory or vibratory work as an extension of other connective tissue techniques, explains the relevant physiology and the principles of wave propagation in tissue, and then provides illustrated introductory exercises, applications, and case studies. Whether you are a student or an advanced practitioner, a physical therapist or osteopath, this book challenges you to rethink your viewpoint on the application of healing force.
