Instructor: Tracy Walton
Millions of people are diagnosed with hypertension, heart disease, and blood clots each year, and many of them seek support and stress relief through massage therapy. No matter where you practice - a spa, franchise, private practice, or medical facility - you are likely to encounter these cardiovascular conditions. Massage literature gives general contraindications to follow, but gaps in massage and bodywork training may have left you wondering what to ask your clients about these conditions, and how to modify your massage in each case.
In this course series, Tracy Walton clearly describes contraindications and ways to modify massage for clients with cardiovascular disease. She presents simple principles, specific interview questions, and concrete massage guidelines so that you can work more confidently and safely. Learn some of the most interesting and even lifesaving information on massage for common cardiovascular conditions. The more you know, the better prepared you will be to provide compassionate and effective care. Take advantage of this groundbreaking online series to broaden your client base and enhance your practice.
