Originally published in 1964, "Beard's Massage" is a classic physical therapy massage text. The original author, Gertrude Beard (1887-1971), was a pioneering physical therapist in the 1920s who treated patients using soft tissue massage techniques that remain the basis of practice today. Now in its fifth edition, with a new title, this classic text has been expanded and updated throughout to provide physical therapy and other health profession students with an overview of massage, a description of massage techniques, information on the benefits of massage, and specific techniques for a variety of conditions.
