Lymph drainage massage is a technique utilized by massage therapists to provide relief from edema, an accumulation of fluids in the tissues that causes swelling. This book provides a scientifically-accurate explanation of the lymphatic system, the theory behind lymph drainage massage, and explains when it should be performed. Also provided is an explanation of the application of lymph drainage massage to the needs of well clients, rather than focusing on pathology, since most massage therapists and estheticians will not be treating lymph edema disease in their work. The book offers step-by-step procedures for facial and upper and lower body massage, giving you practical information that can be applied immediately. With an aging baby boomer generation and the population at large increasingly focused on well-being, technicians whether beginners or those looking to review and broaden their skills are increasingly interested in learning about lymph drainage massage and how it can enhance their clients' experience as well as their own careers. Milady's Guide to Lymph Drainage Massage can play a vital role in accomplishing all of these goals.

Based on best practices prescribed in The Guide to Physical Therapist Practice, Essentials of Cardiopulmonary Physical Therapy, 3rd Edition provides comprehensive coverage of anatomy and physiology, assessment, and aspects of the cardiopulmonary systems, with a focus on their interaction. The disablement model is used in describing the eight cardiopulmonary practice patterns. Expert author Ellen Hillegass also discusses pathophysiology, pharmacology, and interventions in the outpatient setting. Incorporating Guide language, her practical approach progresses logically from basic sciences through intervention, and emphasizes lifespan considerations. Material follows The Guide to Physical Therapist Practice 2nd Edition, reflecting best practices as defined by the American Physical Therapy Association. Evidence-based content is based on the latest research in the field. Case studies show the application of concepts with real-world examples. Pharmacology chapters reflect both the rehabilitation background of physical therapists and the pharmaceutical expertise of a pharmacist. A focus on wellness follows the disablement model. Information on geriatric and pediatric cardiopulmonary physical therapy is easy to apply to patient situations. Testing for both cardiac and pulmonary dysfunction is conveniently located in a single chapter. Cardiovascular medication information covers the latest drugs used in cardiopulmonary physical therapy. Information on thoracic organ transplantation simplifies and explains these complex procedures. NEW chapters cover the lymphatic system and pediatrics. Revised chapters on cardiopulmonary anatomy and physiology differentiate between information that is need to know and that is nice to know. An Evolve companion website includes medical animations to illustrate concepts, along with a glossary, glossary exercises, and reference lists from the book linked to MEDLINE abstracts.
