Graf's Physiology

Graf's Physiology not only includes information, diagrams, and concepts of physiology essential to massage therapists, but also connects, relates, and ties it all together with the hands-on practice of massage therapy. This is not a college level textbook. It is not written in technical language. It most certainly does not begin to be all inclusive concerning physiology, even on a beginner's level. This is, however, a textbook tailor-made for massage therapists.

In simple language it presents the basic principles of physiology necessary to be an informed massage therapist. In order to have an understanding of what massage does for the body, you must understand the basics of how the body as a whole functions. This means that you must have a general understanding of how every system of the body works. As you understand the why and how of these systems, you will be able to determine how to use massage to affect the whole body. This book educates you, so you can educate your clients. If you want a book that meets the needs and interests of both beginning and experienced massage therapists, this is the book for you. 184 pages.
