Description

Pathophysiology II & Lymphatic System takes an in-depth look at the Lymphatic System that includes a discussion of the body’s immune system. A detailed look into HIV/AIDS is also included. We will also cover common dysfunctional conditions of the Circulatory and Respiratory Systems. As in Pathophysiology I this is by no means a full listing of conditions, but rather an in-depth look into the more common situations typically encountered. Being well versed in the vernacular and attributes of these various conditions ensures that the massage therapist will properly address the condition presented, as well as knowing when to refer a client out to the proper medical authority. Each section also covers local and systemic contraindications to bodywork where applicable. The section on HIV/AIDS covers high-risk behaviors as well as what massage therapists can do to minimize the (already low) chance of accidental infection. Having this information will ensure that the massage therapist works within their scope of practice, thereby providing the best possible care for the client.

Topics include:

Structure of the Lymphatic System
Non-specific resistance
Specific resistance (immunity)
Lymphatic and immune system conditions
Structure of the Circulatory System
