Hands in Health Care: Massage Therapy for the Adult Hospital Patient,
Second Edition
Hands in Health Care At the time of the book’s first edition, hospital massage therapy was in its infancy. Now it is a well-established service in many hospitals around the world.

The new Hands in Health Care: Massage Therapy for the Adult Hospital Patient, Second Edition reflects the maturity gained over 15 years. The focus of the second edition is solely on adults. The book has been updated, especially the research chapter, infection control practices, medications, pain management and documentation.

New sections and chapters have been added on the subjects of palliative care, aromatherapy in the hospital, addiction, massage in intensive care, cultural awareness, and the therapeutic relationship. A more user-friendly layout includes color photographs. Popular features from the earlier edition remain, such as therapist’s journal, clinical considerations, case histories, and tests.
