Description

For massage therapy programs and students in states that accept or require a national qualifying exam for certification or licensure; including NCETMB, NCETM, MBLEx, or the “new” advanced NCAP exam; for other massage therapy courses that cover similar material; and potentially for anatomy and physiology review in other health care programs.

 

This expanded and updated text fully prepares massage therapy students for the latest massage therapy certifying exams, including NCETMB, NCETM, MBLEx, and the “new” advanced NCAP exam. It supports a wide spectrum of students and learning types by providing many ways to study, including simple outlines; intuitive charts, figures, and tables; many exam related questions with answers and rationales; and video and PowerPoint in a brand-new online study component. It fully reflects major recent changes in the NCTMB exam, and now includes more visuals, as well as more content on ethics, business, medical terminology, aromatherapy and pharmacology – giving students an even more complete and useful study resource.
