Beards Massage by Wood & Domenico
This New Edition of the foundational work on soft tissue massage has been completely updated and revised to provide a convenient reference source that integrates theory with practice.
The 4th Edition continues to follow classic Swedish remedial massage therapy, along with the Hoffa System of local and general massage. It describes how individual techniques affect the human body and then shows how to apply these techniques to specific body regions, allowing the therapist to combine techniques for specific sequences. An introduction to other massage traditions, such as sports massage, trigger points and pressure, rolfing, and shiatsu, is new to this edition.
Therapist Recommends: Great for reviewing the basics between patients, or using as a reference when writing medical reports.
