New Foundations in Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork offers a core curriculum of fundamental principles and practical applications for beginning students as well as practitioners in the field who seek a desk reference and review for continuing education. This text also goes beyond the core curriculum by addressing such topics as massage for hospice patients and survivors of abuse as well as massage routines for common pathologies (including carpal tunnel syndrome, thoracic outlet syndrome, and fibromyalgia). With Exam Points highlighted throughout the text as well as a student CD offering additional test questions and study materials, New Foundations is designed to help students reach two important goals: to succeed in passing their National Certification Exam and to ultimately succeed in their careers. Practice expectations and realities are emphasized through case studies and author/contributor anecdotes. Full-color photographs and line art give the student a detailed view of the application or points being studied. Workbook pages, titled Applying Your Knowledge, are incorporated within the chapters for easy access and review.
