The Concise Book of the Moving Body has been written for the student and early practitioner of anatomy, massage/bodywork, physical therapy, chiropractic, medicine, physiotherapy, sports therapy, or any other health-related field. Containing full-color illustrations, the book is a compact reference guide, clearly detailing anatomical orientation, tissues, in-depth information on joints, and the physiology of bones and muscles. Composite drawings of the body illustrate the major skeletal muscles (posterior and anterior, superficial and deep), including the origin, insertion, innervation, and action for each muscle.

Chris Jarmey is a state registered physiotherapist who has been practising and teaching shiatsu since 1970. He founded the European Shiatsu School, which has branches throughout Britain and Europe.

Thomas Myers studied directly with Drs. Ida Rolf, Moshe Feldenkrais, and Buckminster Fuller, and a variety of movement and manual therapy leaders. His work is influenced by cranial, visceral, and intrinsic movement studies he made with European schools of osteopathy. An inveterate traveller, Tom has practiced integrative manual therapy for over 30 years in a variety of clinical and cultural settings, including 10 years in London, and practices in Hamburg, Rome, Nairobi, and Sydney, as well as a dozen locales in the US. He is a founding member of the International Association of Structural Integrators (IASI). Author of Anatomy Trains and a set of supporting videos, and co-author of Fascial Release for Structural Balance (Lotus, 2010), Tom has also penned over 60 articles for trade magazines and journals on anatomy, soft tissue manipulation, and the social scourge of somatic alienation and loss of reliance on kinaesthetic intelligence. A certified Touch-in-Parenting instructor, Tom retains a strong interest in perinatal issues. Living on the coast of Maine, Tom and his faculty conduct professional certification and continuing education courses worldwide.
