Anatomy and Physiology for Holistic Therapists
Francesa Gould
A useful entry level text for students of massage, reflexology and aromatherapy, featuring quizes and other study aids. Good for absolute beginners and those starting with no previous study of A&P.
Pocket Atlas of the Moving Body - NEW EDITION
The new edition of this little book has all the mistakes corrected which marred the last edition. This makes it the most useful, portable booklet I have seen. It covers trunk and limbs systematically with clear illustrations of the bones and ligaments first, then the muscles in their different layers. It also contains charts of muscles, origins, insertions, innervation and function for each of the muscles by area. Further short sections on joints, posture and movement patterns, types of muscle contraction and muscle fibre types, nerve supply, energy systems and common types of injury make this book invaluable.

Wynn Kapit, Lawrence M. Elson

The best anatomy book there is for detailed understanding. I am still using it for reference. The colouring not only helps the learning process, but enables lightning quick revision as well.
