About this course

It is safe to say that all massage therapists have clients who use medication. Many massage therapists want more 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 therapy can be adjusted to meet those concerns.
