Reproductive Conditions


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

Chapter 11 was about STD’s and reproductive issues, and I was somewhat confused by the reasoning behind this chapter. I contacted the National Licensing Board with my question, and they told me that while yes, we do not directly massage any of the reproductive organs, it is important to be aware of diseases that can come from there, for our own protection. One of the times I will not massage someone is if a woman is pregnant. I do not have the training to, and I do not intend on learning it, because of my own personal reasons, one being if there is a complication I do not want to be even considered a reason for.
