Save Your Hands By Lauriann Greene

Save Your Hands Book Injury happens when the body is stressed beyond its own limits. Hands-on practitioners get injured by performing techniques or working under conditions that cause undo stress to their bodies. The upper extremity is the part of the body most often injured, as the hands and arms are overused in doing hands-on work. This book will show you how to recognize the warning signs of injury, find alternatives to hands-on techniques that stress hands and arms, protect your investment in your career, better manage your school and work life to avoid injury, and recover from injuries using traditional and alternative medicine. It includes exercises and stretches designed for massage therapists and other hands-on professionals and students.

This book is recommended by the American Bodywork & Massage Professionals organization and required reading at massage schools all over the U.S. and Canada.
