SERIES INFO
Advanced Myofascial Techniques Series

Since 1985, over 6,000 professionals have trained in our live Advanced Myofascial Techniques seminars. They live in 51 US states and territories, in more than twenty countries, and on all seven continents. These classes are hands-on, state-of-the art, and filled with techniques practitioners can immediately put to use for addressing their patients’ and clients’ most common complaints.

The Advanced Myofascial Techniques workshop series presents these practicing manual therapists and qualified students with advanced and little-known myofascial techniques which can be easily incorporated into existing personal styles. Drawing on a wide range of disciplines, the focus is on unusual, interesting, and fresh approaches that will both expand technique repertoire and inspire creativity and innovation. Training topics include:

• Specific techniques for commonly encountered complaints
• Relieving pain, restoring lost function, and getting lasting results
• Utilizing both active and passive movement to enhance effectiveness

    I just acquired your new book. It’s aesthetically pleasing and I dig the square shape. More importantly, this is some of the best foot and ankle therapy I’ve seen in print. In my opinion, you’ve filled a missing chunk of the puzzle for many therapists. I specialize in endurance athletes and am impressed with both your ankle mortise and hammertoe techniques, many of which I currently use. Now I feel I have greater depth and breadth of both dysfunctions.
    I also appreciate the thoughtful and challenging study guide at the end of each unit.
    Thank you so much for a most excellent publication.

    What a gorgeous book! I don’t know if I’ve seen a bodywork book that conveys its message so clearly. Til brings together theory and demonstration of techniques masterfully while making the book visually appealing and engaging. He includes a study guide for each section and summarizes the material, helping the content integrate better. The photos are just beautiful and the techniques are some of the most effective ones I use in my practice. This is possibly one of the best bodywork technique books to date. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!

  10. Verified Purchase – Amazon

    I read Vol. 1 of Mr. Luchau’s two volume set after seeing some of his videos produced by advanced-trainings.com. I appreciate the clarity of his prose and the detail he shares on working uncommonly addressed structures like the sacrotuberous ligament. I especially appreciate the opening section that covers fascial basics before heading into the regional section. The pictures are clear and compelling, mixing illustration, photography, and computer-generated images to great effect. The book has the right balance between how-to instruction and theoretical background. I was sufficiently impressed that I have adopted Vol. 1 as a text for my advanced massage techniques class. I look forward to working my way through Volume 2.

    I will write a review of both of Til’s superb books (Vol. I and II) because they should both be bought for an extensive treatment understanding for treatment of most every issue that our clients bring. Although they provide a huge amount of techniques, these manuals are SO much more than protocols, and offer a deep understanding of the anatomy and philosophy for effective treatment. Don’t hesitate to make the investment; you and your clients will be glad that you did. I’d also suggest getting his excellent DVDs to see the work done in real time.

    “Til’s book is an excellent contribution to the practical art of Structural Integration. It should be a standard textbook for any professional interested in direct manual therapy, and takes it’s place among the growing body of work to support the application of the work.” Jan Henry Sultan

  13. Verified Purchase – Amazon

    Til Luchau has blended many years of personal practice and study into this handsome, research-based guide for treating common client complaints. This amazing resource should be part of any serious practitioner, teacher or school’s library.

  14. Verified Purchase – Amazon

    Far and away the best techniques book I have ever encountered! I am so impressed by how comprehensive and rich the information provided in this beautiful book is. I love the QR links to videos and how much value they add!! I already can’t wait for Vol. II

  15. Verified Purchase – Amazon

    Myofascial is the bulk of my work. Til Lachau writes clearly and makes this work accessible, even to kinesthetic learners.

  16. Verified Purchase – Amazon

    This is much more than a reference manual. It is a practical tool for manual therapists interested in a better understanding of the subtle and interconnected nature of our musculoskeletal systems. It utilizes both excellent diagrams and accessible descriptions to guide the practitioner to a better comprehension of myofascial systems. Strongly recommended.
