Ideal as a textbook for decision making and a quick reference for managing common medical conditions in massage practice, this book explains important information about various medical conditions and how to adapt massage to each condition. The central tool of the book is the Decision Tree: a simple flowchart diagram that illustrates the interface of massage and disease. A Decision Tree is included for each of the 62 conditions discussed in the book, with massage considerations listed for numerous additional conditions in brief. Also unique to this text are questions therapists can ask clients during the interview process to help the therapist understand not just the medical condition, but how it presents in a particular client.
