Format: Paperback
If you are thinking of being an alternative therapist and offering massage, this is a good book to use alongside your course. It shows 80 compression and stretching techniques in a clear, easy to use format with step by step instructions and photos. I liked the top tips for treating clients section. This review first appeared on Karen Platt's book review website.

This book refreshed strokes I have not used in the past and gave me new insights into massaging while client is three quarter turned which has come in handy on my massage therapy practice. It has pictures that explain the techniques and gives you short routines to follow.
