Pathology for Massage Therapy

This is a course that is designed to provide you with an overview of the basic concepts and terminology of health and diseases – and whether or not clients with these diseases can be treated with massage therapy. This Massage Therapy (MT) project will provide an opportunity for you to apply knowledge and skills to a realistic situation requiring decisions to implement massage therapy with a group of clients.

Goal of the Project

You are part of a team of massage therapists, assigned to provide treatment to clients at the Edgemont Assisted Living Center who are suffering from Lupus, Leukemia, Diabetes, and Breast Cancer. Your team is to prepare a report on how to best treat clients with these diseases. You will divide responsibilities for the report among team members.

Your Assignment

Your individual assignment is determined by the first letter of your last name, as follows:

First letter of your last name
Disease you are assigned to study in relation to massage therapy treatment


Your report, on your assigned disease area, will cover four areas:

Pathology of your assigned disease – etiology, symptoms and signs.
Treatment of the disease.
Guidelines for providing massage therapy to clients with such a disease.
Methods for putting therapists and patients at ease.
