Respiratory Conditions


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

Chapter 8 related to me personally, because I am an attempting to stop smoker. I am aware of the dangers, but I cannot find a viable solution/habit to replace this one with. Emphysema is a major concern of mine, and it is one of the top reasons why I should quit, in my mind. Many of my friends have asthma, and I try to avoid smoking around them. Sleep apnea is an issue my father had until he was given a machine to sleep with. I was surprised that all three of these conditions were ok to massage, but most (if not all) of the other ones were not.
