A classic manual the learner and the practitioner will find enlightening. Its comprehensive coverage of the physiological effects of massage, as well as the illustrated techniques, are as timeless and unchanging as the human form. Particularly helpful are the detailed therapeutic massage procedures for specific health needs.
