Every bodywork practitioner should have this book somewhere in their practices. This book and course takes practitioners from fundamental concepts through 10 different systems in the body, discussing issues, causes, and solutions to these issues. At the very beginning of the book is a list of the various pathologies discussed at length in the book. There are comprehensive figures and tables to illustrate points, as well as case studies and practical application.

Ms. Warner has wonderful illustrations and photos that make these pathologies come to life. She characterizes pathologies and their look-alikes, comparing and contrasting each of the symptoms and possible causes. There are Massage Therapy Implications that show not only the benefits, but the risks and contraindications, as well.

At the end of each chapter are suggestive questions that therapists can explore, and discussions practical applications that can easily be implemented into any routine that you use. You will also discover ways that pathogens can spread and offers suggestions on how you can keep yourself safe and healthy while providing a necessary service to many who need it.

The comprehensive study guide and chapter summarizations at the end of the book will take any bodywork provider to the next level to properly and effectively treat clients and their health issues. Although this is an advanced course, those who practice bodywork at any level will appreciate the information, as this will help them grow as practitioners.
