A Massage Therapist’s Guide to Pathology

Ruth Werner, and her iconic book, have joined our publishing family!

There’s nothing quite like finding that perfect textbook to augment our product line and accommodate our rapidly growing customer base. That’s why we’ve brought this revered, best-selling text into our family. 

A cornerstone educational resource of many massage therapy programs and already in its 6th edition, A Massage Therapist’s Guide to Pathology is a comprehensive, visually appealing, and highly respected textbook on pathologies. Organized by body system, the text contains detailed information on the etiology, signs, symptoms, and treatment of more than 500 diseases and conditions. It also helps students discover how massage therapy can positively impact the healing process.

Here are some of our favorite features:

  • Case histories in which people living and coping with many of the diseases and conditions share their stories, drawing a real-world connection between the classroom and the clinic.
  • Clear illustrations and friendly, accessible content to capture students’ attention and make challenging concepts easier to grasp.
  • Tables at the end of each disease description that summarize the benefits, risks, and options for massage therapy.
  • A research literacy appendix addressing the need for evidence-based massage therapy.
  • Compare-and-contrast charts that list similar conditions side-by-side, helping students discern the differences.
  • Access to a host of games, exercises, quizzes, videos, and animations, all developed or selected by the author.
