Palpation and Assessment Skills has been designed and developed to help the student and practitioner to understand and acquire the palpatory skills that are the foundation of all effective manual therapy assessments and treatments.

While it is difficult to learn these from written descriptions or static illustrations alone, by combining a workbook approach with the use of video demonstrations and audio explanations on a DVD, Palpation and Assessment Skills provides the student and developing practitioner with a portable workshop, that they can access at any time
