Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Norris Ogard, RN, BSN, BA, LMT (Bronx Lebanon Hospital Center)
Description: This reader-friendly text presents anatomy, physiology, and biomechanics clearly and concisely. Throughout the text are sections that reinforce the subject matter by challenging the reader to think critically and to integrate the material with personal experience.
Purpose: Drawing on their experience as educators, the authors have successfully met their intent to provide a basic science textbook/workbook that can stand alone or be used in conjunction with other texts, to promote understanding rather than memorization of the material, and to provide a flexible learning tool compatible with different learning styles.
Audience: The intended audience is entry level and intermediate bodywork students and instructors, as well as those interested in a concise review, and all will find this text comprehensive and comprehensible.
Features: The best features are the integration of the subject matter with students' personal experiences by challenging them to think critically through the exercises, "practical applications," and "activities" throughout the text; the presentation of systems as the basis for understanding the workings of the human body; the conversational tone; and over 650 clear illustrations in a single-volume text that is lightweight. The excellent biomechanics section is especially pertinent to the study of bodywork.
Assessment: This well-designed, extremely readable, dynamic book challenges students and instructors to explore the fundamental information through a personal framework. It is an excellent text for bodywork students and a handy reference for any healthcare discipline.
AnnaLou Goldblatt
This book presents the basics of structural touch ortherapeutic massage techniques and their application in varioussettings. It includes sections on ethics and aspects of establishing abusiness. The book is designed to be used as a text and reference fortherapeutic massage educators and practitioners. It meets the statedobjectives and is a good resource. The targeted audience is studentsof therapeutic massage in the classroom setting, practitioners incontinuing education courses, and other health professionals andbodywork practitioners who are seeking a reference source. There aremany good illustrations, but for some the labeling is difficult tofollow; the label is not adjacent to the illustration but located atthe bottom of the page. The material is current with an abundance ofpertinent references. A positive feature is that the text is set toleave a three-inch margin, which is excellent for personal notes. Thereis an appendix that contains all references listed at the end of eachchapter plus any additional references used in developing thetext. This book is easy to read and will be useful to students andpractitioners of therapeutic massage. It reviews the history of massageand the scope of practice across many disciplines. It presents detailedinformation for application of therapeutic massage techniques formultiple conditions and populations ranging from the abuse victim tothe terminally ill. It is a thorough source of information for thoselearning, teaching, or practicing therapeutic massage.
