This fully updated third edition of the best-selling Anatomy, Physiology and Pathology for the Massage Therapist provides a solid base for the student and early practitioner to learn the physical make-up of the body, giving a broad introduction to the body's physical functioning.

The emphasis is on the body systems and aspects most relevant to the dynamics of massage, such as muscle activity, stress response, tension and relaxation, and the effect of touch.
