Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0967954908, Paperback)

Save Your Hands! is the complete guide to injury prevention and self-care for massage therapists. Purchased by hundreds of massage schools across the U.S. and Canada for their students, the book has been the leading self-care manual for massage professionals and students in 7 countries for over 10 years. This ground-breaking, critically-acclaimed book has helped tens of thousands of massage therapists to understand the risk of massage-related injury and learn how to protect their most important tools - their hands - throughout a long, healthy massage career. All massage practitioners, from those first learning techniques to the most experienced therapists, can benefit from the practical, medically-sound advice provided in Save Your Hands.

Massage therapy is a physically demanding career with a very high injury rate. Over 3/4's of practising massage therapists experience symptoms of injury at some point in their careers. Burn-out rates are so high that the average career in massage lasts only 7 years. Burnout and injury ARE preventable, if you know how to recognize the warning signs, change techniques and work habits, and seek early treatment. Save Your Hands will show you how to work smart instead of hard, to manage stress and pressure in the workplace and stay in shape to do this physical work, so you CAN have a long, successful massage career.
