Gastrointestinal Pathology


Review of Mosby’s Pathology for Massage Therapists, by Salvo and Anderson.

Before reading about the gastrointestinal pathologies I never thought massage affected those disorders or diseases. I have learned abdominal massage and how it is helpful for someone who is constipated to help them get regular, but that is it. It didn’t occur to me that there were other disorders of the gastrointestinal system that could be affected by massage. It seems that most can be helped except if the person is contagious, in pain or the massage can make the symptoms worse.
