The technique inhibits the reflexes by putting the tissues in a position of ease directly opposite to that of the reflex.

This is the best osteopathic manipulative treatment reference book I own. This is due to its incredible user-friendly format and editors who have compiled the most pertinent information to be referred to at-a-glance with visuals for tender point location, common pain pattern, and 1 or 2 treatment positions. There is also really well curated contextual summaries for various patterns of disfunction and approach to regions or disorders that can be found within the section introductory pages. Perhaps one of the best features of this book is that is opens completely flat and can be easily brought to the bedside and flopped open when first becoming familiar with strain counterstrain.

I highly recommend this book to those looking to better utilize counterstrain. I also highly recommend counterstrain!

I love this book! Very well written, and illustrated. I find myself constantly referring to the book. As a student, when other students are asking me to treat them I find myself looking at this book often!
It's a definite book to have!

Buy the newer edition. It is better than this older edition. I feel I wasted my money getting this older edition at full price.

I have read most of the common counterstrain texts & chapters, and Harmon Myers definitely is the best. His approach just seems to make more sense & is easier to master. His naming protocol is much more intuitive than the original Jones' nomenclature. Some purists might say that Dr. Myers confuses trigger points & tender points, but I think that the distinction is artificial. I see no reason one can not use Travell/Simons myofascial pain patterns to diagnose the offending muscle & then treat with Jones counterstrain positions. Makes sense to me. Dr. Myers clinical cases are great too. My book is already getting tattered & worn, and that is really my only complaint: the text could be put together a bit better (especially for the price). Overall, an excellent text for anyone wanting to better understand & use counterstrain.
