Review: Massage Therapy: Principles and Practice [With DVD]

User Review  - TurtleMoon - Goodreads

A book about everything and nothing. So, incomplete. Not current. Dry. And, with significant errors--not just grammatical. Apparently, little care was taken in developing, writing, and publishing. So, the content shouldn't even be trusted. Generally, I'd say, find what you need elsewhere. Read full review
