Sydney, New South Wales (PRWEB) April 16, 2012
A new textbook and DVD package from Elsevier Australia will be an essential resource for the country’s massage students.
Written by Sandra Grace and Mark Deal, the 'Textbook of Remedial Massage' addresses important competencies of the HLT07 Diploma of Massage training package.
The book covers massage techniques, practitioner-client skills and knowledge integral to the Diploma course in detail. The authors take an evidence-based approach that is in keeping with the wider Allied Healthcare community, and all content is drawn from cutting-edge research as well as the authors’ lengthy experience in massage education.
Students will find the answer to almost any massage-related question within the pages of this excellent book, which addresses crucial and timely topics like contraindication and remedial massage for special client groups.
Additional resources are provided through the accompanying DVD as well as ancillary resources available on Elsevier’s Evolve site.
The 'Textbook of Remedial Massage' is divided into three sections which:
- address practitioner assessment of remedial massage clients
- provide clear instruction in common remedial massage techniques, and
- apply remedial massage techniques to specific body regions
Each massage technique is explained through useful illustrations and photographs, along with a detailed rationale on any contraindications and precautions, as well as its physiological principles and evidence base. All techniques are demonstrated on the accompanying DVD for further assistance.
Established massage therapists will also benefit from the 'Textbook of Remedial Massage', and can use it to keep up to date with evidence-based research and new practices.
This fantastic resource will therefore assist both massage students and established practitioners of remedial massage, taking some of the guesswork out of study and providing a valuable reference.
