Mosby's Massage Therapy Review - Elsevier eBook on VitalSource, 4th Edition


Written by massage therapy expert Sandy Fritz, this unique review resource prepares you for all of your massage therapy exams — both routine semester exams and tests administered for licensure, such as the National Certification Exam and the MBLEx. This comprehensive review features updated content and questions based on the currently administered licensing exams. Plus, a companion Evolve website comes loaded with 8 practice exams and a variety of review activities such as labeling exercises, crossword puzzles, electronic coloring book, games, and much more!
