Dermatological Pathologies


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

For me, some of the images didn’t actually stack up to my real-life experiences regarding some of the more common ones like warts, calluses and acne…but they were close enough to where I thought it was an editing error. Finally, we come to the reason we bought this book “not that the first two chapters weren’t helpful“ the pathologies. As far as information is concerned, there were excellent tips on how to identify different things using both touch and sight together. However, I found the structure of the information a little confusing at first. It certainly took some getting used to. While a little appetite-destroying, the images were largely accurate and helpful. I really liked the simple traffic light indicator, which allows you a first glance to get into the right mind-set if you associate the image with the traffic light to make snap decisions while evaluating a client. In addition, though, the more sophisticated article on each ailment gives you more understanding and a "best practices" guide on how to help someone with a particular ailment.
