Product Details

"Designed as a classroom text, and replicated with full-color format and illustrations, this revised edition has been updated to reflect the changes in the evolving field of therapeutic massage and its integration with standard biomedicine. It covers the history of massage, definitions and descriptions of massage and medical terminology, hygiene, sanitation and safety in the clinic, preparation for treatment, assessment techniques for designing massage routines, basic therapeutic approaches (including hydrotherapy, circulatory enhancement, reflexology, connective tissue, trigger point, and acupressure therapy), and business and professional practice management. New sections include expanded information on ethics and professionalism, special populations, complementary bodywork, and energy based systems; the power of touch; and appendices on common medications and implications for massage, skin pathology, and self massage. Integrated workbook features assist the student in acquiring a firm knowledge base."
