First published in 1964, Beard's Massage is a classic physical therapy massage text originally authored by Gertrude Beard, a pioneering physical therapist in the 1920s who treated patients using soft tissue massage techniques that remain the basis of practice today. Now in its fifth edition, with a new title, this classic text has been expanded and updated throughout to provide you with an overview of massage, a description of massage techniques, information on the benefits of massage, and specific techniques for a variety of conditions.

"This revised version of the book examines touch as a form of communication and with great insight has expanded on the importance of those offering these forms of care being able to recognize the ways in which touch therapies can be interpreted. It is vital for massage therapists to understand touch in the context of the client's life and beliefs, culture, age, gender, religion, and health status in order that delivery may be sensitively offered and accepted. Ethics receives a justifiably expanded degree of attention in the text, accurately reflecting both the profession's own increased focus on the important topic and society's demand for excellence in the ethical arena.

As consumers increasingly choose to blend their use of medical and complementary modalities, practitioners in all health fields are challenged to understand each other's approaches to patient care. The physician who cannot provide knowledgeable advice about concurrent use of practices like massage therapy risks being out of touch with the benefits they can provide as well as the health considerations for different populations. Massage therapists need an evidence-based understanding of their work and a shared language in order to engage in meaningful dialogues with medical doctors with whom they share patients.
