Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Created specifically for massage therapy students, the Third Edition of Anatomy & Physiology: The Massage Connection elucidates anatomy and physiology with clear, concise language complemented by an extraordinary multilayer art program. Organized to cover each body system and align with current massage therapy curricula, topics have been streamlined so that those areas critical for massage therapy—such as the musculoskeletal system—receive special coverage, whereas excessive detail in areas not relevant for massage is omitted. This edition also delivers a host of review activities in addition to a blockbuster ancillary package of online tools and complementary resources.

   

Anatomy & Physiology: The Massage Connection is just that—the link between the science of medicine and the art of massage as well as a bridge for students to a successful career in massage therapy.

Book News Annotation:

The new edition of this text for massage therapy students incorporates changes and refinements that improve the presentation, as well as new material discussing the proven effects of massage on each body system based on current findings. Curriculums have changed at massage schools, and this edition stays abreast of those changes. The text is generously illustrated with photos and art and includes chapter review tests. Access to the full text and supplementary material online is included with purchase. Premkumar is a physician and a medical educator and currently teaches at the Center for Complementary Health Education, Mount Royal U., Canada, and is affiliated with the College of Medicine, U. of Saskatchewan.
