“I learned a lot about horses – not my usual clients – reading this book. Jim Pascucci’s love of animals, experience in the field, and practical wisdom come through on every page. The section on fascia is a masterpiece of economical presentation, and the material on perception from the horse’s point of view – simple and obvious once it is understood – makes the language of ‘hors-ese’ immediately easier.” – Tom Myers Author of “Anatomy Trains”

“All I can say is FANTASTIC! As an equine chiropractor I concentrate mainly on restoring normal joint function through manual manipulation of the joints, particularly the spine. Your Myofascial Release Manual fills in all the gaps about safely treating soft tissue stress that joint manipulation alone cannot address. Your descriptions of anatomy and the techniques are clear and easy to follow. I highly recommend this book for every equine therapist or horse owner who needs to see a fast improvement in their horse’s performance.” – Dr. Daniel Kamen, D.C., Author of The Well Adjusted Horse

“Jim unites his extensive technical training with the practical wisdom that comes with experience; creating a clear, balanced and holistic approach to myofascial release instruction.” – Laurie DiNatale North American Trail Ride Conference Executive Administrator

“Equine Structural Integration is a great resource for anyone that works in the craft of equine bodywork. A therapist must know why and how “hands on” manipulation of soft tissues effects the equine structure and movement. It is obvious that Jim has put much thought into clarifying his ideas and sharing his experience in a very clear and concise format. Especially useful is the way that he describes fascia, injuries and scar tissue, how it lives, forms, and distorts and why it effects the overall efficiency of the horse’s movement. This book will raise your knowledge level so that your brain has the ideas and tools to guide your hands while working with a horse.” – Sara Stenson, CMT, CEMT President and Instructor Prairie Winds Equine Massage Therapy College
