  • Over 300 NEW full-color photographs help you recognize common diseases and conditions.
  • UPDATES of commonly seen pathologies include Alzheimer’s disease, diabetes, obesity, and post-traumatic stress.
  • NEW Aging and Massage chapter reviews key concepts such as frail or robust, discusses palliative care, and reviews the need for treatments specifically geared toward the elderly.

  • NEW Clinical Tips boxes provide brief, practical hints gleaned from the author’s first-hand experience in clinical practice.
  • NEW 911 boxes prepare you for emergencies such as heart attacks and strokes that may occur in a massage setting.
