Chapter 7


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

While reading Chapter 7, I learned about Cardiovascular and Lymphatic/Immune pathologies. Both systems are very closely linked, and both play a major role in maintaining homeostasis. Some signs and symptoms that come with the pathologies are difficulty breathing, skin discoloration, swollen lymph nodes, failure to gain or maintain weight, and a few more. Anemia is a common cardiovascular pathology, it is when oxygen-carrying blood is reduced and the client has fatigue, and paleness in skin, and dizziness, a massage can be preformed if the client is feeling well enough, if the client is to tired the massage can make them feel worse. AIDS is a Lymphatic/Immune pathology, it is and autoimmune disease and massage can be preformed, but the therapist need to check on the clients vitality before each massage.
