Table Lessons : Insights in the Practice of Massage Therapy – Douglas Nelson

Table Lessons : Insights in the Practice of Massage Therapy

Table Lessons is a book of narratives that contain insight into the mastery of massage therapy. Each short story represents a problem solving strategy or the embodiment of a physiologic principle that affects the practice of soft-tissue therapy, specifically Precision Neuromuscular Therapy. Stories embody knowledge in a way that simple facts cannot; they give context and meaning to help the reader apply these lessons in his/her own practice. In these clinical narratives, the reader is guided through the clinical decision-making process of soft-tissue therapy. Not just a book of clinical success stories, this book contains numerous stories of struggle, difficult lessons learned, and the art of clinical reasoning. The reader will learn strategies and reasoning processes that can be applied to soft-tissue therapy or across any discipline where critical thinking and reflective practice is vital. The book is divided into four sections: Strategy, Learning Through Failure, Differential Assessment, and Communication.
