A Guide to Soft Tissue Therapy

Massage is a basic skill within physiotherapy, and one which
requires a high standard of practical application. It is a skill
which is increasingly being taken up by other health care and
complementary therapy professionals. This new, third edition of
Massage for Therapists is a timely and thorough update which
continues the tradition of Margaret Hollis' hands-on approach. The
book is designed to be a step-by-step guide to the theory and
practical application of classical massage. Once mastered, these
techniques may form the basis for a variety of modifications
suitable for specific conditions.

Massage for Therapists is split into three sections: an
introduction to massage and preparation for giving a massage; the
massage manipulations by area of the body; and some key
modifications to the standard manipulations. In order to further
enhance the practitioner's skill and to give the reader a grounding
in some of the popular specialities, updated chapters on
aromatherapy and massage in sport sit alongside new chapters which
introduce myofascial release and shiatsu.

Massage for Therapists will be of interest to student and
qualified physiotherapists and sports therapists, as well as
occupational therapists, chiropractors, osteopaths, nurses,
complementary therapists and beauty therapists.
