What we say

JBMT was established in 1996 by Leon Chaitow who continues as the Editor.  As mentioned in our interview with Leon, he wanted to create a journal to fill a gap in the therapeutic market, this it has certainly achieved.  The content covered is diverse and perhaps captures techniques and discussions that don’t find a comfortable place in profession specific journals elsewhere.  Much of the content is entirely appropriate for the physiotherapy community and will appeal more to those with a holistic outlook.

Access to full text is limited to Society members as well as personal subscribers who can sign up here.  You can now also read JBMT on your mobile device through Elsevier’s HealthAdvance mobile app for your SmartPhone or iPad.
