Get the science background you need to master massage therapy! Mosby’s Essential Sciences for Therapeutic Massage, 7th Edition, provides full-color, easy-to-read coverage of anatomy and physiology, biomechanics, kinesiology, and pathologic conditions for the entire body. Realistic examples apply A&P content directly to the practice of massage therapy, and learning activities help you review key material and develop critical thinking skills. Written by noted massage therapy educators Sandy Fritz and Luke Allen Fritz, this guide provides a solid foundation in the sciences and positions you for success on licensing and certification exams.
Key Features
  • Updated and streamlined MBLEx preparation questions at the end of each chapter, with additional questions available on the companion Evolve website, prepare you for licensure.
  • Updated pathologies reflect what you will see in the field as a practitioner.
  • Focus on essential content helps you study for and pass licensing and certification exams, including the Massage and Bodywork Licensing Examination (MBLEx) and Board Certification in Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork (BCTMB).
