HEALING MASSAGE

MAUREEN ABSON    Book Number: 86703    Product format: Paperback

An A-Z guide for more than 40 medical conditions, the handbook is designed for both professional and home use. It introduces hand, foot, head and back massage techniques, an A-Z of medical conditions including Ankylosing Spondylitis, asthma, cancer, cerebral palsy, constipation, foot drop, frozen shoulder, irritable bowel syndrome, lumbar spondylitis, muscular dystrophy, Parkinson's disease, plantar fasciitis, repetitive strain injuries, rotator cuff injury, restless leg syndrome, tennis elbow, tendonitis, winged scapula, wrist drop and more. The book seeks to educate and empower two groups of people, the qualified massage practitioner and everyday people wanting to help a friend or family member. In each section there is a detailed drawing showing the arrangement of bones, ligaments, tendons and tissues inside for example the hand. It explains how tiny crystals feeling like grains of sand under the skin can be kneaded so that the uric acid it contains can be dispersed and flushed into the blood stream and out of the body. If left untreated it tends to build in joints where it can develop into gout. One of the key reasons that massage therapists recommend drinking plenty of water after a treatment is that the body is assisted in this cleansing process. Every technique is described in great detail in both the text and step by step colour photographs and precise medical terms used in the very clear line art drawings. The book brings together Eastern and Western understandings of the body, health and wellness detailing massage protocols and instructions. A very impressive medical reference for every family bookshelf. 262 pages in large softback, 8¼" x 11".
