Anatomy & Physiology for the Manual Therapies 1e is designed to meet the specific needs of students preparing for careers in the manual therapies, such as massage therapy and careers as physical therapy assistants. This book provides the most appropriate depth of coverage for each body system -- in both narrative and visuals -- and by including relevant applications linking the content to situations they will face in their careers. Specially written applications with a focus on massage and physical therapy are included. An outstanding illustration program is also integrated to highlight important concepts and special diagrams are presented that point to origin, insertion, and innervation of muscles. This is crucial knowledge for massage therapists, physical therapists, and occupational therapists.

This text is awesome for all massage therapy students! It has what you need to know without being overwhelmingly in depth. I have taken 3 anatomy and physiology classes total and have used this version and Tortora's 5th edition. As a massage therapy student I found this book to be much more pertinent and interesting for my profession.
I bought this book as a gift for my sister who is thinking she would like to do massage....we can't get her out of book! I was the same way when it arrived to me. Easy to understand, flows with great detail and answers the questions in plain English.
You can't go wrong with this text. Between the real life applications, well placed graphics and tables this text is very comprehensive yet user friendly. The chapter tests and outlines at the end of the book are an incredible study tool for exams.I highly recommend this text.
