This workshop is 4 CEs.

It is safe to suggest that all massage therapists have clients who use medication on a regular basis. It is also safe to say that many massage therapists have little information on how those medications work, and how massage might affect their function. This introductory pharmacology class addresses basic principles of drug mechanisms, possible side effects and adverse reactions, and how massage can be adjusted to meet those concerns. Special focus is given to analgesics, anti-inflammatories, cardiovascular disease medication, and diabetes management drugs.

Participants in Pathology, Pharmacology, and Massage: an Introduction to Key Concepts will be able to…

  • Identify the components of pharmacologic nomenclature
  • Explain the delivery methods of pharmacologic agents
  • Recognize descriptions of pharmacologic mechanisms
  • Predict general cautions and side effects for specific classes of medications in the context of massage, and describe strategized to mitigate them
  • Use this information to describe major medications used to treat…
    • o Inflammation and pain
    • o Manage cardiovascular disease
    • o Manage diabetes and hypothyroidism
