The best-selling pathology textbook for massage therapy is now in its Fifth Edition. The book presents detailed information on the etiology, signs and symptoms, and treatment of over 200 diseases and conditions, emphasising how massage influences the disease and healing processes and how therapists can maximise the benefits while minimizing the risks.

This edition includes Modality Recommendation Charts offering specific advice about modalities to pursue or avoid in various circumstances. The book has been reorganized to include an introductory chapter on fundamental concepts and a concluding chapter on cancer. New topics covered include myeloma, sickle cell disease, and autism spectrum disorders.

A bound-in CD-ROM includes animations, video clips, interactive flashcards, quiz questions, an audio glossary, and printable client history forms.

Features include:
> Chapter Objective Questions open each chapter (answers are provided on the Student Resource CD), and a brief review of the structure and function of the system under discussion.
> Topics are grouped by type, so that conditions with similar etiologies are found close together in the text.
> Chapter Review Questions conclude each chapter (answers on the Student Resource CD).
> In Brief boxes provide a thumbnail sketch of the condition under discussion.
> Sniglets give background or history for some terminology
> Sidebars discuss peripheral issues relating to conditions, or give more detailed information about cancer staging.
> Compare and Contrast charts lay out aspects of similar conditions side by side, so that readers may better understand where they overlap and where they diverge.
> Case Histories share the stories of people who live with various conditions so that readers may appreciate how these abstract ideas lead to concrete realities.
