Copyright 2012
Binding: Online Product, Reference




A practical massage textbook for both massage students and established practitioners of remedial massage.

Covering essential topics from history-taking to contraindication, Textbook of Remedial Massage is an excellent resource for Diploma of Massage students with content aligning to the HLT07 training package.

Client Assessment – The first of Textbook of Remedial Massage’s three sections addresses practitioner assessment of remedial massage clients. This includes information on how to adapt massage techniques for clients’ individual needs.

Massage techniques – The second section provides readers with clear instruction in common remedial massage techniques, such as trigger points, CRAC stretching and myofascial release. Each of these techniques is explained through illustrations and photographs, along with a detailed rationale on its physiological principles and evidence base. Crucially, contraindications and precautions are explained for each massage technique.

Body regions – The final section of this text applies remedial massage techniques to specific body regions, all of which are demonstrated in detail on the accompanying DVD.

The authors’ evidence-based approach is in keeping with the wider Allied Healthcare community. This approach is a key determinant of Medicare client rebates, as well as rebates from many private health funds, making it an essential aspect of contemporary massage.
