Required and recommended textbooks and other curriculum materials for Semester 1 of the Somatics Professional Training Program.
Clear, concise information on musculoskeletal anatomy for both review reference and for the beginning student. Separate illustrations and descriptions of individual skeletal muscles, bones and nerves. An essential tool for students and professionals. This book has been an indispensable learning and reference tool for massage therapists, bodyworkers, and Somatics practitioners for over 30 years.
Now in its sixth edition, The Physiology of the Joints, Volume Two: The Lower Limb is illustrated in full color, rewritten and enriched with new text. Conceived and written over forty years ago, it has brought back to center stage biomechanics, which previously was dismissed as anecdotal in works on human anatomy. As a result of this impetus every work on anatomy nowadays covers in depth the functional features of the locomotor apparatus; in short, biomechanics has become a science that cannot be ignored.
