This Second Edition textbook and reference tool is thoroughly updated. It presents a wide variety of diseases and conditions seen by students and practitioners, and discusses how massage may or may not fit into the healing process. New features include integration of additional artwork with color plate enhancement, an increased amount of case studies and personal stories, and current developments in pathology in relation to the context of massage therapy as well as other types of bodywork. Topics covered each fall under sub-heading listings: definition, signs and symptoms, etiology, and the application of massage therapy as a treatment modality option, and more.
