“As our business continues to grow, we keep looking at new opportunities to expand our portfolio with textbooks that further strengthen Books of Discovery’s commitment to helping manual therapy programs achieve outstanding teaching and learning objectives. Bringing A Massage Therapist’s Guide to Pathology into our publishing family helps us achieve that goal,” says Melinda Helmick, president of Books of Discovery.

Comprehensive and visually appealing, the text contains detailed information on the etiology, signs, symptoms, and treatment of over 500 diseases and conditions.

“I invite readers into a learning environment that is friendly without being trivial; clear without being simplistic; and sensitive, not only to the struggles that we and our clients may live with, but also to the complexities of the decision that we must make in that context,” Werner says of A Massage Therapist’s Guide to Pathology.
