Designed for quick reference, this first-of-its-kind handbook instantly answers the massage therapist's questions about any drug a client may be taking, including how the drug may affect the application of massage, which cautions and contraindications may exist, and which changes in the massage session may be required for a client taking the drug. Drugs are listed alphabetically by generic name and each drug entry includes pronunciation; brand names; effects on the body; diseases, disorders, and symptoms the drug treats; possible side effects; onset-peak-duration table; and massage considerations.
