Trail Guide to the Body…
If you have this book then you know it is a fantastic guide for massage practitioners (or physical therapists, athletic trainers, or anyone who works with soft tissues). It is one of the best guides for developing palpation skills and learning detailed information about the structure and movement of the body. I find useful for for educating clients about their bodies, why I am going to work on a certain area, and the general benefits of therapeutic massage. These days I find myself using my iPad more and more for client education. Do you?
The other day Allissa Haines’ (from Writing a Blue Streak) mentioned on Facebook that she pulled out her Trail Guide to the Body book. Somebody was kind enough to mentioned there was now an app for the guide available on iTunes. It appears it was released in May.
Here is the link for a free “lite” version of this app (limited functions). It is a great way to check it out to see if you like it before spending $39.00 on the full version.
And the link to the full version ($39 .00). It costs less than the Trail Guide to the Bodybook, and is very handy looking up things quickly.
What you think of the app? How do you use this guide or app in your practice?
