Nurturing Massage for Pregnancy is a textbook for massage students and certified massage therapists who treat clients who are pregnant or in labor, or who have recently given birth. The book focuses on general soft-tissue and Swedish massage and assumes the reader is already familiar with those techniques as well as the basics of anatomy, physiology, and kinesiology. The book also integrates some myofascial release and trigger point techniques, as well as occasional complementary bodywork methodologies, such as the use of breath and visualizations, acupressure, aromatherapy, and hydrotherapy. To address the concerns of many practitioners with regard to working with pregnant clients, contraindications and precautions are examined thoroughly, along with a review of basic obstetrical practices. http://thepoint.lww.com/product/isbn/9780781767538

Provides all of the anatomy and physiology knowledge a massage therapist needs in a way they can better understand! Applied Anatomy and Physiology for Manual Therapists is a clear, accurate, simple, and comprehensive A&P textbook that focuses on the needs of students in manual therapy education programs. It is a focused text that deliberately emphasizes the information manual therapists need to be familiar with in order to understand the benefits, effects, indications, and contraindications of their specific form of manual therapy. The text includes detailed information not covered in standard A&P texts, adding an entire chapter on neuromuscular and myofascial connections (Chapter 8), and separating the structure and function of the lymphatic system (Chapter 11) from immunity and healing (Chapter 12). This, along with chapter features such as Manual Therapy Applications, Pathology Alerts, and What Do You Think questions, help readers build bridges between the scientific facts and the application of that information to their therapeutic practice.
