Cardiovascular and Lymphatic/Immune Pathologies


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

Chapter 7 has quite a long introduction. That is justifiable, though. After all, there are many different subsystems and tissues, even a whole second system, the lymphatic/endocrine system, all related or incorporated into the circulatory system. More than justifiable, it’s full of useful and clear diagrams that effectively clarify parts and pieces of both the circulatory system and lymphatic system. I have to admit, though, that I was surprised at just how far beyond varicose and spider veins this chapter would go, including special massage instructions for edema, Sickle Cell Disease, and Raynaud’s Syndrome. I have a feeling this chapter will stay permanently bookmarked, as some of these ailments are relevant to the focus of my future business.
