An introductory guide to massage is an essential textbook for all those studying towards Level 3 qualifications in body massage.
It meets the requirements of City & Guilds, ITEC and VTCT syllabuses and provides the underpinning knowledge and skills needed for successful massage treatments.
The classical techniques that form the basis of most massage systems are thoroughly explained, and the student is introduced to the different types of massage practiced by complementary, spa and sports therapists.

- Clear photographs of each massage movement
- Step-by-step routines and sequences
- Treatment case studies, working practices and professional requirements
This new 3rd edition now includes:
