Publisher Comments:

This best-selling text teaches students and practitioners the essentials of body mechanics they need to know in order to care for themselves while practicing massage therapy. The text is written in a practical, playful, and friendly manner and integrates kinesthetic, cognitive, and environmental elements.

Featuring over 200 full-color illustrations, this edition builds on the Second Edition by assisting manual therapists in becoming involved in developing a self-care strategy. Each chapter starts with a brief narrative explanation of a movement, followed by hands-on exercises, self-observation exercises, self-care and injury prevention tips, and client education tips. Appendices discuss successful body mechanics for spa therapy, transferring clients, and floor work, and present troubleshooting and preventive strategies for common repetitive stress injuries.

A companion Website offers fully searchable online text and video clips that demonstrate proper technique.

Synopsis:

Present these crucial self-care strategies to ensure long, and healthy careers in manual therapy!

Manual therapists provide their clients with a myriad of services, from relaxation, to pain relief, to recovery after illness, and more. Nonetheless, many manual therapists are not accurately trained on how to care for themselves while they care for others. In the third edition of her one-of-a-kind book Body Mechanics for Manual Therapists: A Functional Approach to Self-Care, Barbara Frye outlines a holistic approach to safe practice that can help therapists have long careers free from work-related injury, or chronic pain.
