For massage technique classes in multiple modalities, including Swedish, neuromuscular, Rolfing, and energy work; and for classes in kinesiology or ergonomics.

This comprehensive, engaging text helps students develop good ergonomic habits by assessing their biomechanics and gaining an internal awareness of their posture and movement patterns. It combines hands-on  techniques for kinesthetic learners, aesthetically pleasing photography for visual learners, and reviews of anatomy and kinesiology that link scientific principles with personal body mechanics and self-care. It presents student-centered coverage of multiple self-care topics, including exercise, self-massage, relaxation techniques, and stress management, helping practitioners extend their careers and improve their health. Exclusive threaded worksheets enable students to build on what they’ve learned in previous chapters, performing tasks that reflect a holistic understanding of diverse ideas and techniques.
