Published in 1972 and continuously in print since then, The Massage Book introduced Swedish massage to American culture.

Still current and well regarded, The Massage Book was listed by National Health magazine as the first of twenty-five best books that have changed our thinking about our health and our world.  Today, as alternative treatments are being discovered by mainstream health plans, massage is still going strong.  In the last twenty-five years, countless books on massage have been published, but none rivals The Massage Book.

About the Author
