I was recommended this book by a friend who is a therapist when I started out on my aromatherapy course. Having to learn all the A&P that goes with massage techniques was a major stumbling block for me. However with this book finding muscles and parts of the skeleton and how it all came together has been a dream. I recommend it. My tutor was so delighted with it that he has ordered copies for the college library. Just get this book you will find it is the best book you can ever have and it is so easy to follow and understand, with the most fantastic diagrams I have ever seen. If I could give it 10 stars I would.

This book was on the recommended reading list for my degree course at uni. It is well structured and clear to understand with a depth of knowledge required for most practising therapists or bodyworkers. The diagrams are clear and coloured in a way that enables the bodyworker or palpator to identify very specifically the bone or muscle that he/she is seeking.
Newest edition now ring-bound which is more practcle.

I used this book whilst studying and now use it to assist me in teaching Health, Fitness and Sports Massage courses. The book is well laid out in clear sections of the body. The individual muscle diagrams are superb but the book also includes the body in action and shows the reader the muscles that are used in functional activities. This is sometimes hard to understand, as some books look at muscles individually rather than working together. A great book for those on all levels of course that require anatomy knowledge as you can just use the sections that you need. I would also highly recommend that you look at the other books and DVD's available from this range of books. (Teachers Guide, Student Guide and DVD of muscle palpation for Massage Therapists)

If you're a physio student, get this book.

This book was on the reading list for my sports massage therapy diploma and was pretty much the only book I bothered to haul around with me. It is brilliant. I'm now half way through my first year of a physiotherapy degree and it is still proving invaluable. I take it to all our practical classes. This book will teach you how to locate and palpate most of the skeletal muscles. It is very very clear and easy to understand. I had about 3 people try to teach me how to locate psoas major in the abdomen and I couldn't get it, I read the paragraph in this book and did exactly what it said and got it first time.

I have Gray's and Palastanga but when it comes to just learning muscles and bones there isn't a better book than this one, really worth the money.

The best anatomy's book ever(my opinion). If you need to work with bodies this will be your muscle's "bible"! Great and easy images and great dvd! do not esitate.

As a Structural Integration practitioner I find this book extremely useful for reference for both myself and at times to further inform my clients on specific areas as I am work with them. It's clear , concise, well planned and laid out, user friendly and easily digestable.

I ordered this book as a study aid for my Diploma for Swedish Massage and I wish I had got it for the start of my course. It is perhaps slightly more detailed than what I needed but I have found it invaluble! A realyl fantastic and informative book!
