Basic Clinical Massage Therapy: Integrating Anatomy and Treatment is primarily a textbook for advanced massage therapy students who have already acquired the basic skills of Swedish massage and are now pursuing additional training in clinical massage therapy.In this book, the author define "clinical massage therapy" as the use of manual manipulation of the soft tissues to relieve specific complaints of pain and dysfunction. As its title implies, this book integrates detailed anatomical information with basic clinical massage therapy techniques. By embedding illustrations of internal structures into photographs of live models, it shows exactly what muscle is being worked on, where it is, where it is attached, how it can be accessed manually, what kinds of problems it can cause, and one or more basic techniques for effectively treating it. The student can clearly see the involved structures in relation to surrounding structures, surface landmarks, and the therapist's hands. Therefore, this book offers a truly innovative visual and tactile understanding of anatomical spatial relationships integrated with the learning of treatment techniques, which has not been possible with traditional approaches.
New to This Edition
In addition to correcting a number of errata, we have received feedback from some school owners and instructors, and have made the following additions and changes:
- We have added a palpation entry for each muscle.
- In addition to the references to the draping illustrations originally provided, we have added draping to illustrations of therapy.
- A custom DVD created by Real Bodywork (commissioned by the publisher) now accompanies the book, containing real-time video clips of a number of massage sequences presented in the book.
In short, this book is intended to bridge the wide gap between the anatomy book and the living body on the massage table, especially for students, but also for practitioners. As your hands rest on the body, your eyes can move back and forth between the illustrations and the subject, allowing you to incorporate the anatomical information with both visual and tactile senses. This book will also allow you to find essential information about any muscle quickly and easily, either for the first time as a student or to refresh your memory as an experienced practitioner. It is flexible enough to be used in any massage class. The material is presented in a format that is easily referenced, so that instructors may assign as little or as much of the material as they choose.
