Review:

"In its third edition, thoroughly revised and restructured, published thirteen years after the first, this guide to clinical practice for students and practitioners has been strengthened by the addition of online video clips that show how to learn and apply a selection of massage techniques (acupressure, reflexology, aromatherapy, relaxation etc), studied and practiced in a scientific context and accompanied by good clinical decisions based on solid and relevant evidence. The authors propose a new approach to massage - step by step, they describe the procedures for providing instruction, accompanied by illustrations which aim to make the text comprehensive and easy to follow for the teacher, and an excellent quick reference for professionals."
