Overview

This new review system is designed to help students prepare for and pass school-administered exams, state and local licensing exams, and the National Certification Exam administered by the National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork (NCBTMB). Nearly 800 multiple-choice questions plus answer keys and rationales, as well as 40 labeling exercises and unique case-study/critical thinking questions, make up this comprehensive review. Mosby's Massage Therapy Review covers topics from four essential categories: Human Anatomy, Physiology, and Kinesiology; Clinical Pathology and Indications and Contraindications for Massage Application; Massage Therapy and Bodywork; and Professional Standards, Ethics, and Business Practices. A FREE CD-ROM offers even more practice and familiarizes the user with taking the exam in an electronic format.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The book covers...key foundations of anatomy and physiology; focusing primarily on the muscloskeletal system, as well as providing a basic introduction to the body systems. Detailed but simple diagrams illsutrate joint movement and muscle structure, and photographs show the range of normal movement for joints and limbs."

    I Also Recommend:

    Wonderful review guide, study aid, and refresher course.

    This should prepare you to pass the boards if you have studied HARD in class and do ALL your reading...but this guide is just plain excellent. Many guides cover the same material, but the source of information is a very reputable massage therapist and the way it has been put together is awesome. The book is like a refresher massage course. Good Job!
