The use of massage in sport has become more widespread, not only to treat injuries, but also to increase muscle fitness, strength, and flexibility. In Massage for Sport, Joan Watt, an internationally renowned physiotherapist, addresses the rules of massage and its techniques. The book covers sports massage—including techniques, contact materials, methods of application, duration, and contra-indications—and also covers ice massage, aromatherapy, and reflexology as additions to the masseur's skills. Massage for Sport will be invaluable to the student sports masseur, physiotherapist, and coach, as well as to the qualified practitioner.
