    Condition-Specific Massage Therapy is a versatile book that outlines treatment goals for relieving musculoskeletal conditions in the context of a relaxation/wellness massage session. Students in a basic 500-700 hour program and practicing therapists will both benefit from the techniques outlined, as well as build upon critical thinking and basic massage skills. This book will prepare therapists and students both in the clinical and spa setting for dealing with common musculoskeletal conditions. Templated chapters for eleven of these common conditions apply foundational science to massage practice and move the student from understanding each condition to assessing and working with the client. Each chapter ends with a Professional Growth section, which encourages further exploration and critical thinking.

    More and more consumers of massage therapy are using it to address specific complaints.  With the possibility of massage therapy being covered by insurance, therapists who can assess signs and symptoms and plan treatment goals will have an advantage in the market. But not all schools want to teach clinical Massage.  Condition-Specific Massage Therapy offers an entrée into specific treatment without being heavily clinical.  Written in simple language, CSMT provides the critical thinking tools students need to assess and address common conditions using the hands-on skills they already have, regardless of modality.
