The Review for Therapeutic Massage & Bodywork Certification, 3rd edition, was written and compiled by experienced instructors that have been involved in massage education for over 18 years. 

The Review for Therapeutic Massage & Bodywork Certification contains over 300 pages of up-to-date information for all of the content areas of the National Certification Examination. It's simple format and full index makes it easy to read and easy to reference.

This book was designed as a review tool once someone has already gone through educational courses or had the training they need to sit for the exam.  It provides clear, concise definitions for medical terms and concepts along with some applications of the review material.  Simple diagrams, images and drawings are included in the text to help the reader visualize the material.

The content material has been divided up into the five major sections of the National Certification Exam:

  1. Anatomy, Physiology, & Kinesiology
  2. Clinical Pathology
  3. Therapeutic Massage & Bodywork Assessment
  4. Therapeutic Massage & Bodywork Application
  5. Professional Standards, Ethics, & Business Practices

We chose this format and organization to match the format of the Candidate Handbook put out by the NCBTMB.  We recommend you get a copy of this Candidate Handbook (if you haven't already) and use it to prepare for the exam.
