This course will teach the massage professional about working with those who have been diagnosed with a neurologic, neuromuscular, post-surgical, or oncologic medical condition so they may safely apply the appropriate massage techniques to a client referred by a health care provider. The student will review the relevant anatomy and pathophysiology of each medical condition and explain the benefits as well as the potential massage limitations or contraindications. For the oncologic section, the course will provide an overview of oncology care including surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy as well as the side effects of these treatments, and how they may affect massage therapy programming. In addition, students will learn how to modify a treatment session and adjust their massage techniques for clients who have undergone surgery or who have been diagnosed with cancer. Upon completion, the student will have the confidence and skill to provide relief from the symptoms most commonly experienced by clients who have been diagnosed with a neurologic, neuromuscular, post-surgical, or oncologic medical condition.
