I find this to be a well written, well researched text for Massage Therapy students. I am blown away by the online materials that become available after you purchase the book. The student materials are "only" excellent. I find the instructor materials (you have to be registered as an instructor to get to them),are absolutely PHENOMENAL. As both a physician and a massage therapist, I have a unique perspective. I find the content to be very accurate with only a few exceptions. Those mostly fall under the categories of differing opinions, not proven facts. I highly recommend this text for any instructors needing to select a text for a course of this nature.

I absolutely love this book! It's one of the few textbooks that I'll kick back and read cover-to-cover. It came with an online soft-copy, which makes for easy referencing when writing essays. We hope to never come across these cases in practice, but it's good to have a comprehensive guide to what's out there.
