An integrative perspective on the causes and effects of disease and the disease process in the context to the massage therapy profession. Focus on physiological mechanisms, disease states and symptoms, clinical assessments and indications / contraindications associated with diseases and disorders. Basic principles of pharmacology and commonly prescribed pharmaceuticals are also covered. This course cultivates greater understanding, dialogue and collaboration between clients/patients and holistic medicine health care professionals. This course does not teach students to diagnose since that is outside the scope of practice for massage therapy.
