it was amazing


With an impressive resume as Malini Chaudhri has, my expectations for Neuromuscular Massage Therapy were very high. Thankfully she delivered.

A must have book for any massage therapist, this technically superb and precise book illustrates the importance and details of advanced patient care, with an illustrative approach. As I have mentioned before, I am a fan of non-fiction books who cut out the fluff – presenting the facts of the subject matter at hand with a clear, precise, and informative style, which is I have found within the pages of Miss Chaudhri’s work.

Offering a very comprehensive and detailed approach to therapy, Miss Chaudhri focus on all levels of patient care, from how to design an effective therapeutic plan that pays attention to the patient’s social as well as physiological state, to working within the patient’s  current ROM (range of motion).

The photography included in the book is clear and does not leave much to chance, the illustrations are crisp, perceive and professionally captioned.

What surprised me pleasantly was that this self-published book (via Amazon’s Createspace) was expertly formatted and edited, something that is rather lacking in some indie books. This only highlights more – in my opinion -, how much Miss Chaudhri cares about the presented subject matter.

I highly recommend Neuromuscular Massage Therapy for anyone in the field, novice or expert.
