This innovative text uses unique, richly detailed photographic illustrations of muscles as they appear under the skin to give you a thorough understanding of effective palpation.

Joseph Muscolino's popular, concise writing style makes the science of palpation clear and accessible, encouraging critical thinking skills. Trigger points and referral patterns included for each muscle provide convenient access to guidelines for additional client assessment and treatment. Massage-specific treatment options guide you from palpation and assessment to practical treatment application. Stretching protocols and illustrations broaden your treatment capabilities. Comprehensive Body Mechanics chapter details 10 guidelines to help maximize efficiency during practice.
