Product description

130 full-colour photos guide you through the essentials of sports massage. "Sports Massage" provides in-depth information of foundation massage techniques within sports massage. Thorough instructions and over 130 full-colour photos demonstrate the correct application of each massage stroke for muscle groups of the neck, shoulder, torso, pelvis, legs and feet. You'll learn how to use advanced working positions in prone, supine, side-lying and sitting orientations to address each muscle group, helping you achieve a more comfortable and therapeutic session for your client. Highlighted in the text are tips on technique adjustments, and special 'Client Talk' boxes offer suggestions for ways to communicate technical information to your clients. Throughout the text, self-test questions (with answers) allow you to check your understanding and reinforce your learning. In addition, a photo gallery provides quick reference for checking techniques and their application.
