5.0 out of 5 stars All you need to know., 9 Nov. 2001
By A Customer
Best things come in small packages. Although this is quite a small volume, you will find all you need to know here. This book is ideal both for the interested amateur, and for those wishing to take their interest further.
It starts with the history of massage - the Chinese yellow Emperor makes reference to the use of massage for healing. Then it goes on to list the numerous benefits of massage, and ways to set the scene. There is some useful information of when not to massage, and details of the simple equipment you will need.
After the introduction, we have a description of all the strokes used, complete with simple diagrams, and a sequence for a full body massage.
For those needing more detail, there is a wonderfully simple section on all the relevant anatomy and physiology. It tells you all you need to know, without overloading you with indigestible information.
The book also includes an introduction to the numerous essentials oils that can be included to perform an aromatherapy massage, and more information is given on massaging babies, and massage for sports injuries.
The diagrams are simple and informative, and really do make the topic more interesting.
Buying this book has spurred me on to booking a course at my local college to study further, and already this little volume has proved extremely useful.
This is a very worthy introduction to those wanting to learn more about massage
