Veteran-Specific Clinical & Research Resources for Massage Therapists

VA Clinician Resources

Recommended Clinical Guides

  • Note: I do not receive any fees or financial benefits from these recommendations. These are texts that I use as a clinician and that I have found to be both effective and efficient in supporting my work. There are other texts/options available for clinical massage yet I cannot speak to their effectiveness or efficiency. The texts I have found to be most useful:
  • Hands Heal by Diana Thompson Communication, Documentation, and Insurance Billing for Manual Therapists Fifth Edition.
  • Orthopedic Massage Theory & Technique by Whitney Lowe
  • Orthopedic Assessment in Massage Therapy by Whitney Lowe
  • A Massage Therapist’s Guide to Pathology by Ruth Werner* next edition available Dec. 2019
  • I also strongly recommend using a drug reference app. There are several available through the APP stores.
