Description:

Therapeutic Kinesiology provides practical and relevant applications of the study of human movement to the practice of massage and bodywork. The first kinesiology text specifically geared to massage therapists, it's actually three books in one: a kinesiology text, a palpation text, and a body mechanics text. Focused on experiential learning, it is replete with self-study exercises – including many specifically designed to help practitioners avoid work-related injuries. It offers clear, friendly, and easy-to-read coverage of the skeletal, muscular, and neuromuscular systems; joint motion; biomechanics; posture and gait; basic palpation skills, the thorax and respiration; the ankle, foot, knee, hip, pelvis, spine, head, neck, shoulder girdle, arm, hand, and more. Hundreds of color photos and anatomical images appear throughout, along with many practical tips – including expert guidance on client education.
