Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This book is well thought out, well written and thorough. I wish this book were available to me when I was going through massage school!"

" I think this book will be a great addition to any massage program or entry-level student studying Swedish massage."

"This is a needed book. The detailed step by step approach is limited in other books or publications. It is great to see a return to the details of hands on techniques and not just a quick routine."
