I am a somewhat new massage therapist and have had my own office for almost a year.
I bought this book when I opened my office because I felt like I needed a refresher on charting and how to chart for injury treatment, structural work, insurance, etc. Even in school I wasn't strong with charting, so I was really looking for something to give me more confidence with it.
I ordered this book because of it's title and I sure wasn't disappointed! I'm really pleased with this book and I feel it's helped me with more than charting.
This book is organized into two sections - Client Exam and Treatment Plan / Treatment and Discharge.
The first part of the book covers a little of the philosophy of caring for a client, and then goes into clinical decision making and testing.
The second part of the book covers all kinds of ways to treat clients - it goes into detail on superficial reflex techniques, superficial fluid techniques, NMT, connective tissue techniques, passive movement techniques, and percussive techniques - all with many pictures for reference. This section also covers self massage, preparing your space for massage and then the actual treatments and discharge process.
I think maybe some seasoned massage therapists may find this book a tad elementary, but even just to get it as a great massage read rather than a reference, I think many people would still learn something.
Overall, this is a wonderful reference and helped me a lot with SOAP charting and treatment plans!

I was impressed by the high caliber and daily usefulness of this book. I found the organization by the different levels of the tissues that were being treated innovative and practical. Each section provided lots of hands-on guides with excellent photographs, as well as details of the scientific basis for the technique.
I especially like the tables the authors provide that help me quickly locate information. My colleagues and I find ourselves checking the book when we need quick info on a patient we are treating.
This book was one of my required text during Massage school. I found it to be a very hard read. Too much fluff & not enough stuff. The majority of my fellow classmates felt the same.
