"Trail guide to movement is a companion book to Trail guide to the body: a hands-on guide to locating muscles, bones and more. While Body covers the hands-on subject of palpatory anatomy, this text explores how bones, fasciae, joints, muscles and other structures come together to produce human movement. Body puts your hands on the tissues; Movement wraps your mind around the body. The intent of this book is to serve as an introduction to the study of human movement for students, practitioners and instructors"--Introduction (page 2).
