CBI Innovations: OPTP

Eric Franklin's new
 book, Fascia Release
 and Balance, now
 available from OPTP,
 describes how 
connective tissues
 integrate the various 
components of the
 human body, facilitating all movement.
 This information is 
complemented by
 Franklin Method
 imagery and ball-
rolling exercises,
 which release tension and prepare the fascia for expansive movement. Fascia Release and Balance introduces new Franklin Method exercises that, incorporating anatomical imagery and proprioceptive tools, target specific areas of the fascia—from foot to jaw. Anatomical imagery is supported by rich, full-color illustrations, and each exercise includes step-by-step instructional photos.
