Hypertension, Hypotension, and Massage Therapy

High blood pressure (hypertension) is common. More than 76 million US adults have been diagnosed with this condition. This population is encouraged to reduce stress, and many seek out massage therapy for this purpose. In this course you will learn:

• Essential questions to ask clients with hypertension?and what to do with their answers
• What research says (and does not say) about massage and blood pressure
• Some common drugs for high blood pressure, and how to adapt massage to their side effects
• Why hypotension is as important as hypertension to factor into your massage plan

Tracy Walton will show how simple changes in massage pressure, speed, and position lead to a safe, effective session.
