Massage Therapy: Principles and Practice
This text provides comprehensive information on the theory and practice of massage therapy, successfully fusing the anatomical sciences with hands-on techniques. It covers Swedish massage techniques, in addition to clinical massage, Asian bodywork techniques, spa techniques, seated massage, and adaptations for special populations - addressing history, equipment, hygiene and sanitation, technique, contraindications, communication and client management, alternative therapies, and business. An entire unit on anatomy and physiology reinforces a general understanding of anatomical science while focusing on practical information that is most important to the massage practitioner, such as specific benefits, contraindications, touch research, and adaptations of massage to each individual body system. Extensive pedagogy includes chapter objectives, famous quotations, chapter self-tests, mini-labs, notes from the author, FYI boxes, biographies, and other special boxes. Interactive skill building activities encourage readers not just to read but to think about, experience, and discuss topics, as well as write about their goals and aspirations.
