Urinary System Pathology


I see that massage does not directly affect the urinary system, but massage therapists still need to be acquainted with the important system. The kidneys filter waste out of the blood as well as maintaining blood pressure. Massage therapy can affect blood flow so pathologies of the urinary system should be carefully considered. Some urinary pathologies are kidney disorders like kidney stones which are extremely painful to pass and there are disorders of the bladder itself such as bladder cancers. I know that if any client has cancer I would want medical permission to proceed with massage.
