Summary

An update of the definitive work on soft tissue massage! The 4th Edition continues to follow classic Swedish remedial message therapy, along with the Hoffa system of local and general massage. An introduction to other massage traditions, such as sports massage, trigger points and pressure, rolfing, and shiatsu, is new to this edition. A new section details individual massage strokes, accompanied by all new, step-by-step photographs that show the direction and sequence of each individual stroke. Current and extensive reference sections accompany every chapter, and the up-to-date bibliography provides citations in a wide variety of areas associated with massage.
