In this unique and lavishly illustrated book and its accompanying videos the practitioner can for the first time see the effect of manual interventions on underlying body structures. Volume 2 addresses its applications to the thoracic and lumbar spine, the pelvis, and the lower body.
The author’s own teaching and practice provide the material that explains and illustrates fascial anatomy and therapeutic procedures. The beautiful full color photographs and videos of dissections of non-embalmed cadavers show the continuity of the fascial system and its dynamic links to other body systems. By demonstrating the effect that therapy has on body structures the book will be of interest and practical value to the physical therapist, osteopath, chiropractor, physician and all bodyworkers dedicated to manual therapy, as well as to researchers wishing to build on this ground-breaking material.

With Myofascial Induction™ Volume 2, Andrzej Pilat provides us hands-on therapists what we often wish for: a view into the body that clearly shows what is beneath our hands. The rare quality and clarity of this book’s fresh-specimen images (along with its in-depth and up to date narrative references) reveal the layers, tissues, and connections that we feel in our work, in a way that anatomical illustration simply cannot.

This second volume is as outstanding as the first with the clarity of its anatomical drawings, dissections, text and neurological maps providing the basic essentials for clinical reasoning and practice that will benefit every clinician.

When Andrzej Pilates first volume was published many new perspectives opened for clinicians and for scientists. Now we have the second volume in our hands. It focuses on the structures of the Lower Body. This comprehensive book is even more profound than the first one. It manages to invite the reader to reflect on fascia in a completely new way. And it talks to clinicians, to researchers and even to philosophers of body work. After the first volume this is another milestone!

This is one of the most beautiful fascial anatomy textbooks I have seen. Andrzej Pilat is a genius at translating complex fascial anatomy into clinical implications, including fascial, neural, visceral and lymphatic techniques and assessments. This book is a must-have for all health professionals to understand and treat fascial dysfunction.
