According to NCCIH (formerly NCCAM), energy healing therapy is defined as "A technique that involves channeling healing energy through the hands of a practitioner into the client’s body to restore a normal energy balance and, therefore, health. Energy healing therapy has been used to treat a wide variety of ailments and health problems, and it is often used with other alternative and conventional medical treatments". Most energy therapies are based on the concept that a life-force energy is throughout all living things. Some examples of energy healing therapy are Reiki and Pranic which are most popular, polarity therapy, Qigong, and crystal healing.

The Tuskeegee syphillis study was horrendous and extremely unethical. The study did not have the consent of the subjects and also the way the subjects were chosen was unethical. The worst was that the subjects were not offered penicillin and were left untreated so scientists could study the disease. By the end of the study 40 years later 74 of those men were still alive, 28 died of syphillis, 100 died from complications, 40 of the men had wives that contracted the disease and 19 of the children born had congenital syphillis.

The techniques for Adrienne at this point would be a focus on her neck, shoulders, and lower back so she can have some relief from stress, pain, and be relaxed. Some things to be cautious about would be her stomach issues. Ask her when she last ate and keep her comfortable during the massage and inform the Jeremy if she is feeling nauseated. It may be best to keep her cooler if she prefers so she doesn't get too warm during the massage which may help her to not be nauseated if she had just eaten. Jeremy could tell her to wait for the test results however a relaxation massage may make her feel better and she didn't mention any signs of injury that would be an issue. Jeremy should just take the massage slow and check in with her on how she is feeling throughout.

Study participants must be protected. In the "Tuskeggee study of Untreated Syphilis in the Negro Male" the study was conducted without informed consent of the participants. It took place in Macon County, Alabama, and researchers told the participants they were to be treated for "bad blood." At the time the study was started there was no cure for syphilis. But in the 1940s when penicillin became the recommended drug for treatment of syphilis, researchers did not offer it to the participants. This study was unethical and led to laws instutited to help protect human research participants.

I compared and contrasted the StrongLite Ergo Pro II, Master Massage Equipment The Husky Apollo XXL, and the NRG Grasshopper portable massage chairs. All three chairs were fairly lightweight with the Ergo Pro II weighing 19 pounds, the Husky Apollo XXL weighing 18 pounds, and the NRG Grasshopper also weighing 18 pounds. Another consideration was how much client weight they will support. The Ergo Pro II stated it had a working weight of 600 pounds and a static weight of 1200 pounds; the Husky Apollo XXL had a support weight of 1,200 pounds, and the NRG Grasshopper had a working weight of 300 pounds. All three chairs had carrying cases, but the Husky Apollo XXL had a carrying case with wheels which may be an important difference. Each of the chairs claimed to be comfortable and strong. I feel the carrying weight, the client weight the chair supports, comfort, sturdiness, and safety would all be important features in portable massage chairs. Adjustable and removeable and replaceable cushions would also be important. Each description focused on different aspects of their specific chair so it was difficult to compare them in some features. I think I would want to look at them personally and talk to the manufacturers' representatives and get recommendations from therapists who had used the chairs. I think if products are available at the national conference, that would be a good time to compare and contrast and maybe buy a chair or table.
