This text is focused on the anatomy and physiology needs of massage therapy students and practitioners. It gives extensive coverage of the major body systems - integumentary, skeletal, muscular, and nervous-crucial for massage therapy. It also provides an overview of other body systems so students have a well-rounded understanding of anatomy and physiology. This text is organised into three major sections. The first section focuses on the anatomy and physiology of each body system. Important topics in pathology such as pain, inflammation and healing are detailed in the second section. The third section provides case studies in relation to each body system, giving common scenarios that therapists may come across.
