Endocrine Conditions


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

Chapter 6 did not have many personal experiences that I have had in it, but I did find it interesting that Hyperpituitarism and Hypopituitarism would cause one condition when a person is young and another as adults. As some of my friends suffer from depression, I attempt to help them through it with a nurturing massage and trying to talk them through any episodes they may be having, having had depression myself 6-7 years ago. This seems to help them improve their outlook on things to come as well as events that are in the past. I find that the people who suffered from depression often suffer from extreme anxiety as well, and massage helps to relax their bodies as well as their minds.
