Theory and Practice of Therapeutic Massage, 5th edition is the classic text in the massage industry including the essential knowledge and skills needed to become a successful, professional massage therapist, plus the essentials of anatomy and physiology. Essential topics to the industry such as ethics, hygiene, communication skills, and body mechanics are discussed. Full-color illustrations and photographs clearly illustrate techniques and procedures. Classical massage is expanded with clinical techniques including neuromuscular and myofascial techniques, and lymph massage, combined to better serve the client by following therapeutic procedures. Numerous career tracts are explored including massage in a spa environment and athletic massage. A new chapter discusses massage for special populations including pre-natal, infant, elder, critically ill, people with cancer, and hospice. The final chapter has been revised to cover business practices for finding employment or successful self-employment.

About the Author:

Mark Beck began his massage career in 1974 after completing a massage apprenticeship under the guidance of Bob Rogers. He completed a program to become a holistic practitioner in 1979 and has taken hundreds of hours of continuing education classes. Mark owned and directed two massage schools and remains active in state and national professional massage organizations. Most recently he was an inaugural board member of the Alliance for Massage Therapy Educators (2010-2014). He holds a bachelor's degree in vocational education with an emphasis in massage therapy from the University of Idaho. Mark developed the Structural Muscular Balancing Seminars and is coauthor of the Structural Muscular Balancing Manual. Because of a spinal cord injury in 1990, Mark retired from the practice of massage therapy but continues to be an advocate for excellence in massage education.

Review:

"The Beck textbook is filled with an incredible amount of knowledge for the up and coming massage therapist. The real-life photos in the text help to reinforce the lessons in each chapter."

"I was extremely impressed by the quality of this new text and how it encompassed every aspect of massage therapy all 'under one roof'. This is a valuable asset to not only students but for any massage therapist to add to their library as reference tool."
