Fascial and Membrane Technique Book Review:

The fascial and membrane technique developed by Peter Schwind combines the fundamental thoughts from Ida Rolf ́s Structural Integration with concepts of osteopathy, creating a successful combination of form-stabilizing and mobilizing techniques. The book emphasizes diagnosis and treatment of the breathing patterns manifest in the myofascial system; minimalistic as well as global application joint techniques; visceral techniques in the myofascial context; special treatment techniques in the craniosacral area and care of the upper jaw. Includes comprehensive information on therapy from head to foot with descriptions of the anatomic correlations. Clearly describes the theoretical and practical principles so difficult concepts are easily understandable. Detailed, easily transposed instructions about treatments allow the reader to put the concepts into practice with ease. Photographically documented movements show real examples of topics discussed.

The Fascial Network Book Review:

What is the Fascial Network? How does fascia-specific training affect the quality of the body’s network of connective tissue? The Fascial Network, a new resource for exercise trainers and instructors, closes the knowledge gap in exercise science regarding fascia—a long-neglected structure that deserves far more attention than it has received, until now. The fascial network is a web of connective tissue that surrounds the body’s muscles and organs. It gives the body integrity, providing the tensional network in which our muscles work. Fascia-specific training makes the body more resilient, more flexible, and more energetic. This new approach of looking at our own anatomy provides a primarily scientific explanation for the physiological processes that make up the energy-related holistic thinking of Eastern concepts such as acupuncture, Yoga, Tai Chi, and Qi Gong. Thus, two doctrines that could not be more different in their approach find common ground and offer mutual ways of explanation. The Fascial Network explains the function of the body’s connective tissue by offering insight into its formation, physiology, and anatomy. This resource includes exercises for fitness as well as for recreational and competitive sports. With fully illustrated examples for practical implementation, it also serves as a training aid for instructors and physical therapists. Develop a healthier, stronger you with The Fascial Network.

Spinal Manipulation Made Simple Book Review:

Written by an expert on alternative bodywork, this book presents techniques for manipulating the soft tissues of the back in a safe, simple manner. The method avoids the high velocity, low amplitude thrusting techniques employed by chiropractors. Instead, it utilizes the intuitive sense of somatic bodyworkers combined with the proven theory and technique of Rolfing to provide safe and effective treatment. Maitland shows how to elegantly release joint fixations in the spine, sacrum, pelvis, and ribcage by using subtle soft tissue techniques, rather than the thrusting techniques that "pop" the joints. This gentler kind of individualized Rolfing work is thoroughly described within an explanation of biomechanics, aided by drawings and photographs which depict techniques and anatomy.

Structure Function Integration Book Review:

Structure, Function, Integration: Journal of the Dr. Ida Rolf Institute is the professional journal representing the field of Rolfing® Structural Integration. It has been in continuous publication for some forty years, initially as The Bulletin of Structural Integration and later as Rolf Lines.The March 2019 issue (Volume 47, No. 1) of Structure, Function, Integration: Journal of the Dr. Ida Rolf Institute¿ begins a theme on the Ten Series of Rolfing® Structural Integration (SI), the ten-session series that our founder Ida Rolf conceived as both a teaching methodology and a 'Recipe' for aligning the human body in gravity. As there is so much to say, this issue will present Part 1 of that theme, focusing on Ten-Series history (the early Recipe as taught in the 1950s, and the modern Recipe as Rolf herself taught it), its internal order and complexity of the Recipe, and thoughts on teaching and practicing the Ten Series. (Part 2 will be in the June 2019 issue.)Our regular columns cover Rolfing SI and Sports, with a discussion of working with athletes, including elite professionals; fascia insights as gleaned from research into stretching fascia by Helene Langevin and her team; and a discussion of the Ten Series by Dr. Ida Rolf Institute¿ faculty.Our Perspectives section covers a discussion of the origin and spiritual dimension of Rolfing SI, a contemplation of ninja movement arts in relation to Rolfing embodiment, and tributes to Rosemary Feitis and Vivian Jaye, two important figures in our history. Feitis provided seminal assistance to Ida Rolf with the early trainings, the founding of the Institute, and the publication of Rolf's books, launching Rolfing SI into the public and professional sphere. Jaye, in turn, was a luminary of Rolf Movement® Integration. Along with her close collaborator Jane Harrington, she made key developments in the work itself and how it is taught, and nurtured Rolf Movement work to a coequal place and in the overall Rolfing curriculum.

Learn or Die Book Review:

To compete with today's increasing globalization and rapidly evolving technologies, individuals and organizations must take their ability to learn—the foundation for continuous improvement, operational excellence, and innovation—to a much higher level. In Learn or Die, Edward D. Hess combines recent advances in neuroscience, psychology, behavioral economics, and education with key research on high-performance businesses to create an actionable blueprint for becoming a leading-edge learning organization. Learn or Die examines the process of learning from an individual and an organizational standpoint. From an individual perspective, the book discusses the cognitive, emotional, motivational, attitudinal, and behavioral factors that promote better learning. Organizationally, Learn or Die focuses on the kinds of structures, culture, leadership, employee learning behaviors, and human resource policies that are necessary to create an environment that enables critical and innovative thinking, learning conversations, and collaboration. The volume also provides strategies to mitigate the reality that humans can be reflexive, lazy thinkers who seek confirmation of what they believe to be true and affirmation of their self-image. Exemplar learning organizations discussed include the secretive Bridgewater Associates, LP; Intuit, Inc.; United Parcel Service (UPS); W. L. Gore & Associates; and IDEO.

Your Face in Mine Book Review:

An award-winning writer delivers a poignant and provocative novel of identity, race and the search for belonging in the age of globalization. One afternoon, not long after Kelly Thorndike has moved back to his hometown of Baltimore, an African American man he doesn’t recognize calls out to him. To Kelly’s shock, the man identifies himself as Martin, who was one of Kelly’s closest friends in high school—and, before his disappearance nearly twenty years before, skinny, white, and Jewish. Martin then tells an astonishing story: After years of immersing himself in black culture, he’s had a plastic surgeon perform “racial reassignment surgery”—altering his hair, skin, and physiognomy to allow him to pass as African American. Unknown to his family or childhood friends, Martin has been living a new life ever since. Now, however, Martin feels he can no longer keep his new identity a secret; he wants Kelly to help him ignite a controversy that will help sell racial reassignment surgery to the world. Kelly, still recovering from the death of his wife and child and looking for a way to begin anew, agrees, and things quickly begin to spiral out of control. Inventive and thought-provoking, Your Face in Mine is a brilliant novel about cultural and racial alienation and the nature of belonging in a world where identity can be a stigma or a lucrative brand.
