Publisher Comments:

This is an essential, one-of-a-kind resource for gaining the skills and knowledge you need to provide safe, effective massage therapy to patients in acute care settings and private practice clients who are medically frail. As demand grows for massage therapy in acute care, many bodyworkers seek to broaden their ability to meet this important need. To paraphrase the Author - For many touch therapists, massage is more than a job or a profession--it's a calling.

With the knowledge gained from this expertly written book, you will be able to confidently provide massage therapy in the hospital, other care settings, and for clients affected by health problems. It's the ideal guide for student bodyworkers and practitioners, educators, hospital administrators, and a wide range of medical professionals.

Book News Annotation:

MacDonald, MS, LMT, has written this guide to address the growing call for therapists to work in acute care settings as massage therapy becomes an accepted complement to medical care. She explains common conditions and symptoms of hospital patients as well as common medical devices and procedures. For readers unaccustomed to hospital settings, she includes a chapter on adapting to a hospital culture. Throughout the text, MacDonald inserts anecdotes, tips, inspirational quotations, and photographs demonstrating massage methods. The appendices contain common abbreviations, a glossary and sample forms.
