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.
You won't face the burden of sorting through the excessive details of heavier scientific texts designed for the medical profession. The author has done the task for you, integrating massage therapy concepts within the anatomy and physiology content, including sections that discuss how massage interacts with the body systems.
The Massage Connection covers all of the major body systems — integumentary, skeletal, muscular, and nervous systems — that are crucial to effective massage therapy, and provides an overview of other body systems to give students a well-rounded understanding of anatomy and physiology.
As stimulating as it is useful, The Massage Connection will allow you cover crucial anatomy and physiology information.
