12 hrs Sports and Exercise Massage

Sports and Exercise Massage

12 hours

The author makes the complex world of athletics and fitness come together in a nice, cohesive concept. This book explores the different types of injuries that can occur in professional and amateur athletes, some of their probable causes, and strategies to fix them. Contraindications are listed and explained, plus adaptive techniques are discussed. Also discussed are techniques and approaches that are unique to an athlete; the same behavior from a non-athlete may not have the same implications.

There is a supplemental website that takes this modality to a more in-depth level, with case studies and other topics for further exploration and discussion. The images here are first-rate, and the routines are easily learned and duplicated so that you can use them right away! Illustrations bring points to life, making them relevant to your practice.

For any practitioner who works with any type of athlete, even the weekend warrior, this is a reference book that you want to have close at hand. You just might be their key to bigger and better results!
