I highly recommend this book to bodyworkers. It is great for learning and for reference. I use it regularly even for non-massage medical knowledge. The author definitely errs on the conservative side. But, I would expect that on this subject.
Actually, this is the right title and author, but wrong edition, I think. Anyway, good guide pathologies of the different systems especially for people will are involved in any kind of bodywork.
this is a great place to start learning conditions. especially with skin disorders, the author's explanations clear and give practical examples to help remember one condition from the next.
