Chapter 3


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

While reading Chapter 3 I learned about Dermatological pathologies. Some common ones are Macule; or freckles and flat moles, Bulla; or a blister, Pustules; or acne, not fully contraindicated. With the more sever pathologies massage is contraindicated. Some contraindicated pathologies are Measles, Impetigo, Lice, and Herpes Simplex. When massaging a client with skin problems some pathologies are partially contraindicated, or the massage can me preformed with latex gloves on. When taking the gloves off, the therapist must be very careful to take them off without touching the outside of the glove. Keeping yourself healthy as a therapist is most important.
