Remedial massage therapy uses manual therapy techniques to treat and 'remedy' a problem; but to offer a real remedy you must do more than just relieve pain; you must also understand how the problem came about and how it can be avoided in future. Advanced Remedial Massage places the emphasis on remedial therapy as well as massage, and will appeal to students of physiotherapy, oestotherapy and many other manual therapies. The book takes the reader through the practice of remedial massage, the effects and benefits that arise from it, a guide to the human muscular system, basic massage techniques and more detailed treatment practices. Illustrated with more than 200 full-colour photographs and over 50 diagrams, the techniques are easy to follow and understand. This informative guide is a must-have both for students of remedial massage and for professional therapists.

The students are then able to make their own mind up about which massage therapy to practice. This title is ideal for any students taking Beauty Therapy NVQ levels 2 or 3, as well as VTCT, City & Guilds, BTEC and other massage courses.

Die erstaunlichen Fähigkeiten unseres Gehirns Unser Gehirn ist nicht - wie lange angenommen - eine unveränderliche Hardware. Es kann sich vielmehr auf verblüffende Weise umgestalten und sogar selbst reparieren - und das bis ins hohe Alter. Diese Erkenntnis ist die wohl sensationellste Entdeckung der Neurowissenschaften. "Dr. Doidge, ein hervorragender Psychiater und Forscher, erkundet die Neuroplastizität in Begegnungen mit Pionieren der Forschung und mit Patienten, die von den neuen Möglichkeiten der Rehabilitation profitiert haben. ... Das Buch ist ein absolut außergewöhnliches und hoffnungsvolles Zeugnis der Möglichkeiten des menschlichen Gehirns." Oliver Sacks "...ein faszinierender Abriss der jüngsten Revolution in den Neurowissenschaften!" The New York Times "Das Gehirn ist kein fertig verdrahteter Denkapparat, der im Laufe des Lebens immer weiter verschleißt. Es kann sich umorganisieren, umformen und manchmal kann es sogar wachsen. Der Psychologe Norman Doidge erklärt neueste Ergebnisse der Hirnforschung: Durch einfühlsam geschilderte Beispiele macht er sie für jedermann verständlich und nachvollziehbar." Deutschlandfunk
