For beginning to advanced courses in deep tissue therapy, neuromuscular therapy, myofascial therapy, and acupressure; and for holistic bodywork classes combining any of these approaches.

Holistic Bodywork provides a dynamic, integrative approach to understanding today’s four most popular methods of bodywork: Deep Tissue Massage, Neuromuscular Therapy, Myofascial Therapy, and Acupressure. Each modality is explored in terms of both physiology and theory, with detailed descriptions of fundamental techniques. These descriptions, together with complete protocols for practical application, are accompanied by many images and diagrams. Written for students, practitioners and instructors at all levels, this text presents complex concepts in a simple format organized for maximum instructor flexibility. Step by step, students move from the absolute basics to advanced concepts, including tensegrity. Pedagogical features include chapter objectives, terms, and summaries; quick quizzes and discussion questions; quick-reference tools and tables, and much more.
