Spa Bodywork: A Guide for Massage Therapists
The ability to deliver an exceptional and satisfying spa treatment is a special skill for which massage therapists are particularly well suited. Spa treatments today are multi-layered, multi-textured works of art that combine many elements of holistic practice. They are fun to deliver and offer the therapist a creative outlet. Knowledge of spa treatments not only allows massage therapists to offer their clients more options; it gives them a competitive advantage when seeking work in the spa industry.
This textbook guides the massage therapist through each step of delivering a treatment—from a consideration of the indications and contraindications to scope of practice issues, the supplies needed, how to set up the room and practical tips on the specific steps involved. It also provides ideas for massage therapists on how to integrate massage techniques, spa products and enhancing accents, so you can create and deliver unique services.
While wet-room equipment and techniques are discussed throughout the book, the focus is on the delivery of spa treatments in a dry-room setting. This approach allows for the use of spa services in a variety of settings such as a classroom, private practice, and massage clinic or day spa without the need for expensive wet-room equipment.

I bought this book last year (Im a certified MT) and it is absolutely wonderful. The school I attended focus on massage (which is what I went there for) however my first job at a spa, I was asked to do srubs and wraps. The one day our class went over those treatments briefly, I was absent. I ran out and bought this book and stayed up until about 3AM. I could not put this book down. It was that informative and detailed. I learned who to do wraps, body scrubs and stone treatments. Although I plan on taking a Stone class to get my CEUs for recertification, this book was a lifesaver. I own my how massage gift shop and still massage and I refer to this book regularly. This book should be sold at bookstores at all massage schools. The illustrations are fantastic also. I can't say enough about this book. Thank you Anne Williams. This is what massage students need!!
