Every muscle listing also has some worthwhile massage movement to use. The illustrations are a joy and really give a good insight to the 3-dimensional reality of the body.
Whe the second edition was produced, I glanced at a collegues copy and found all the above-mentioned positives still there, but was a bit disappointed that 'bible-belt' sensitivities had resulted in some illustrations having rather too much drape and too little skin visible. At that stage I thought "I am glad I have the first Edition". Then I had a chance to see the DVD that is supplied with the second edition - WOW! It is wonderful and shows how to access many muscles that some massage schools say are un-massageable.
Immediately after seeing the DVD I ordered the second edition - my massage clients have benefited greatly thereby.
Quite simply it is the best massage book I have ever come across; it is probably most use to the experienced therapist with an enquiring mind; students may find the sheer volume of information almost intimidating.
A really good Buy!
It has a range of techniques and applications, talks about the fascia as well as the muscles, trigger points, compressions and more.
Only downside is the kindle edition does not have the video with it like the hardback book does, which is disappointing. Maybe it will in the future? I probably ought to knock off a star for that, but the book is so good even in itself, well...I'm not.
Here's hoping the kindle version will include the video too (or at least access to it) sometime.
And the DVD, showing techniques in action must be the biggest cherry on the fattest cake!
The book comes with a CD Rom which as yet I haven't looked at so unfortunately I can't comment on - but I will be studying this book and referring to in frequently alongside communicating with other professionals. This book will help enhance my skills which is priceless - I'm very happy with this purchase.
I would recommend this book to both student and therapist.
