Published Reviews

    "Each card provides full information on the muscle or anatomical part being examined, including how best to locate each structure; how to get the patient to activate that muscle or structure; and palpation notes which highlight key points of clinical importance… The task of learning a vast amount of anatomical detail for any student is quite daunting, but I think many will find the task so much simpler when using this series of flashcards to assist in learning or revising the art of palpation. Highly recommended."
    The Osteopath, 2009
