Reader Review
Find a new life through just one book!, November 30, 2001
Reviewer: antemame from Bickleton, WA USA
This book is beyond words to review it properly. MFR treatment with the John Barnes, PT system, and the wisdom in this book have literally given me a new life, taken me from being almost wheelchair bound, to being mobile, no longer housebound, and to now live with what pain has not YET been eliminated. I would not have believed the book, but I really DO, it has happened to me. I cannot recommend it highly enough. It will help you find peace, comfort and the path to a new life.

Reader Review
A comprehensive tool for equine bodyworkers and riders, August 16, 2001
Reviewer: thelavenderhorse from Utah, USA
Finally! A book that approaches the work of myofascial release with horses in a comprehensive and easy to understand manner. As an equine body worker, my library is full of resource books for understanding the equine anatomy and techniques of massage, accupressure and help for the horse. This one puts them all to shame.

The diagrams of horse anatomy and photographs of specific horses are some of the best in specifically pinpointing areas of a horse with issues of body misalignment. To follow along with the pictures, there is language that speaks to the professional who is versed in anatomy and body work and to the rider who is interested in learning more about observing their horse and helping them through myofacial release techniques. The physical therapy background of the authors shines through as they approach the connection of rider to horse. Showing exercises that the rider can use to improve themselves while improving upon the pattern of movement for the horse.

There are very few books out there in the field of bodywork for horse and rider that will be able to reach people and make a difference for them and their horses like this one. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this book to anyone who cares about their horse.
