Disease Awareness


Review of Mosby’s Pathology for Massage Therapists, by Salvo and Anderson. Within the course of Dr. Johnson.

Chapter 1 applied personally to me, because I am certified and used to work as a lifeguard, so disease awareness was very pertinent in my line of work. Gloves, CPR masks, and proper protection had to be worn when taking care of an individual every time. In the lifeguard certification class, we learned about how important just a pair of rubber gloves could be, or the simple CPR mask. This applies as well to massage, in that disease prevention is probably one of the most important things to the therapist, the first being that the client has a good experience.
